    Unless you are showing them, or they are REALLY gunky, they usually don't require a bath and are very good at grooming themselves.

    Here`s the drill......Warm water, a capfull of dog shampoo and a teaspoon of vinegar. Rub a dub with a sponge, set out to dry in a warm place. Sunny warm day, in the sun is best, but some folks use a hair dryer.

    They LOVE a blow dry! Low setting though, don't burn the lil darlings.
