So just in the past few weeks Herm has taken to getting into the shower with me. It happens with almost no warning. I'll notice a long nose moving the curtain aside and then he does a ninja jump and his entire body is in the shower. Obviously since this started I've been crating him while I shower but I'm still curious on your thoughts as to why this might be happening? I can't tell if it's just that he likes the water or if this is his way of saying he needs to be near me at ALL times. What's the deal?

Oh also, he HATES it when I bathe him--tucks tail and mopes through the whole ordeal.

That's why they are called velcro dogs. They want to be stuck to you, LOL.

How funny! DoberNinja!

If he hates it when you bathe him regularly, will he let you soap him up when he's in the shower with you?  Elka hates it when I bathe her, but I haven't let her in the bathroom yet while I was showering. I need SOME privacy!

velcro is the perfect way to describe dobermans. Same thing happens here. Laith inspects every room before I enter it. he hates baths so he lays on the floor while i take a shower. :p

Ever since I gave my Brody his first bath,he has become fascinated with it.Any time my wife or daughter take a bath,he goes in and just watches them.My other two run the other way thinking they'll be next.When it is his turn he just stands in the tub while I scrub and rinse.

Is it possible to catch this ninja tactic on film? you might be a very rich person if so, lol. Wish I knew how to help =/

At least he would be very clean all the time ^.^
