I bathe mine in the kitchen sink so I don't have to bend over the tub and I have the sprayer hose. They are pretty good about it as they get washed every 3 wks. or so.
I did read one time about putting peanut butter on the wall of the bathtub if your dog hates the tub. They say the dog will quietly stand there and lick off the P/B while you bathe them.
I usually towel dry most of the water, let them zoom around the room and air almost dry, and then comb out. Use a conditioner!
