Funny Story: Dog Bath

My dog is a jack-russell/beagle mix, but she is more of a jack-russell in personality. She used to be pretty strong and quick, which would make giving her a bath a very difficult situation. She hated baths, so much so that she would always try to jump out of the bathtub. So to counter this, I would take her for a long walk. Then let my mom take her for a long walk, and then I would let my brother take her for another walk. As soon as she got back from the third walk, she wouldn't have the strength to get out of bath-time.

  1. That's right -- wear them out! It works with toddlers too, I understand.

  3. That's both funny...and smart. I've learned from experience that jack-russells don't have an "off" switch.

  4. OMG, one of my dogs is a jack-russell/beagle mix!
    She's on my right in this photo. We rescued her and she has a little broken tail from before we got her. BTW, a jack/beagle mix is called a Jackabee! She has a lot of energy. I walk both my dogs about 2 miles a day.

  5. Walking is the best way. They listen better, and the walks are what the dogs NEED!

  17. A Jack Russell Terrier/ Beagle mix? That’s like the cutest combination! Anyway, some dogs really find it hard to take a bath, especially when the weather is too cold. But it’s great that you have a strategy on how to get him to take a bath. I’m sure he finds it refreshing, even if he doesn’t want to admit it. Haha! Thanks for sharing this with us, Adam. All the best!
