don't be afraid to make adjustments based on what you see your dog doing, you don't want to stress him out at all... keep your training sessions short... maybe work on the water thing with him not even in the tub for a while first, then in the tub, meanwhile work on reinforcing for him that being in the tub is a good thing, get in, get cheese, get out, get a pat on the head, get in get cheese... etc... gauge whether or not to move forward a step by how happy he seemed about the last step and take little tiny baby steps as much as you can, the slower you go from step to step, the faster you will actually get to your goal at the end...
