so far we have tried and failed most miserably sitting a si rex inside the shower tub with some warm water - so we started to stand her on the side of the kitchen sink and sponge bath her bit by bit inc the ears but cherub still protests as also does her sister christmas - and cupcake the other dev dashes aay and hides when the sponge and shampoo comes out of the cupboard - this isnt easy before catshows and we sometimes tend to use baby talc and a dry brush instead - but any better ways with devons appreciated before we even think about a whole litter of lovable babies and a brand new bathroom being installed - thinking of a wash stand style white sink surrounded by wipe clean tiles if the plumber finds us one for the spring...

  • I usually have my hubby hold & just use a damp face washer. Not the best, but better than nothing & mine howls & climbs up my top when I try to bath him so I used to end up far wetter than he did.
  • MY daughter cuts all the claws first and just get the shower hose and holds her over the bath and wets her down you can hear her crying but not too bad and then she puts a shampoo on that is for white cats and dogs it is blue based. Leaves it on as long and Sienna(devon) will allow and then rises her off .. Wraps her in a towel and pats her dry ... Then leaves her to herself.. We bath her at least once a fortnight or when her white coat looks dirty.. that way she is use to a bath..
    The night before the show I pat Sienna down with pixie dust it has sparkles and makes her coat sparkle. BUt only do it lightly as you dont want to leave powder on the judges hands ..
