How To Clean A Basset - Friday Humor

Last week our blog friends over at Two Pitties In The City did a posting on bathing your fur-kids.  We got a lot of laughs out of this and having basset hounds, they are not real fond of the baths and are not the easiest to get in the tub.  We do put a treat in the tub to encourage them to jump in there themselves, but getting them out presents some challenges with their long bodies being all slippery.

We probably should give them baths more often as Amiee looks like she is out rolling in the mud with the pigs some days.  Winston is really hard to tell when he needs a bath as he doesn't have much white on him that gets dingy.

So we thought we would share Winston's cleaning technique that he enjoys the most. 

Note:  You may want to adjust your volume for the video as Mom does not know how to turn it down before she uploaded.

As you watched the video you could probably see Amiee come up and then run away, she is no fan of the this type of cleaning at all.  Actually the only basset hounds that I have had that have actually enjoyed this type of cleaning is both of my male bassets.  Elliott my first male basset would follow me around the house with the vacuum until you stopped and ran it over him over and over.  Well Winston does follow you around the house, but he sure will make it known that maybe he needs a little cleaning.

How many of your dogs like to be cleaned with the vacuum cleaner?

  5. Haha! That is too funny! Sherman is terrified of the vacuum cleaner!

  6. Cool!! Wish our pups would let us do vacuum them :)

  7. Too funny. I don't think Bassets like to be cleaned. I think ours would go for years without a proper bath. And they were so big, they were really hard to toss into the tub.
