Question:How do you bathe a dog?

Our dog hates baths...like kujo comes out of him when he knows it's coming. He's a lab/cocker spaniel mix and already has "issues". Being a lab..he's water repellent...being a cocker spaniel he's high strung. So about once a quarter we fill the tub and put pate (yes..pate...and affix it to the top of the tub) and trick him into thinking he's going on a walk to get him into the bathroom for a bath. Any other tricks would greatly be appreciated.
