My dog is a jack-russell/beagle mix, but she is more of a jack-russell in personality. She used to be pretty strong and quick, which would make giving her a bath a very difficult situation. She hated baths, so much so that she would always try to jump out of the bathtub. So to counter this, I would take her for a long walk. Then let my mom take her for a long walk, and then I would let my brother take her for another walk. As soon as she got back from the third walk, she wouldn't have the strength to get out of bath-time.
