I'm currently using a pup shampoo on them, and wash them in the sink since they are so tiny. I use warm water -- not to hot, and not too cold, since I know dogs like the water to be cooler, not hot like how we like it.
I'm also careful about their faces. The first time I bathed them I didn't even get their heads wet, I just washed their bodies, and they still cried about it a lot.
From what I know of Poms so far, they need to be brushed frequently to prevent their undercoat from tangling. And my two pups have a THICK undercoat.
I have a Furminator, a slicker brush, and one of the brushes that has the pin head on one side, and the soft bristles on the other.
I brushed them yesterday, and they did a bit better with it, but still didn't like it. I make sure to go pretty easy on them too, and not dig the brushes in so they hurt them.
