Hey y'all. I am new here, and therefore do not know if this has been suggested before or not; if it has, it probably won't hurt to bring it up again. Anyways, my JRT absolutely hates water. Won't even go in the bathroom because she knows that is where the tub is. I was researching online, and I found a thread that stated if you will run the water in the bath and let it sit for about thirty mintues before taking your dog in there and putting him/her in the water, it will not stress them out as much because the sound of running water can be another stimulant to freak them out more than necessary. While this step didn't cure her of her hate of water, it did make bathtime a little less stressful. Hope this helps!
