Puppies first bath.. when?

The pups are 6 weeks tomorrow.. when can I give them a bath. They dont stink but they are starting to smell 'doggie' and well I want them to be used to the bath time. We are already doing weekly nail trimming and I wipe their ears with a soft cloth just so they are used to ear cleaning and I was thinking of including them in bath night tommorrow maybe with warm water only. Too soon or good idea?

I'd do it. I'll be doing our litter in the sink at 4, 6, and 8 weeks as they're a groomed breed and need to be used to the dryer, etc.

I do young pups in the sink, so much easier, lol! There's nothing cuter than watching a blow-dried, trimmed, beautiful puppy...roll in poop!
