I'd really suggest, especially since he's a wiggly puppy, that you use a cotton ball or pad so there's no way it can inadvertently jab down into the ear canal if he jerks his head.

Yes,
A cotton ball is better. Soak it in peroxide and clean as good as you can. Don't probe too far as Renee said.

I very rarely bath Gus! Only if he's been rolling in Fox muck or something else equally disgusting! He goes for a swim every day in the summer, and I brush him regually. He doesn't smell at all doggy and he has a lovely shiny coat, his skin is perfect and he hasn't got fleas.
I was wondering if I should still be bathing him anyway?! Because it's really a three man operation, two to hold him down and one to bath, no matter what you do he always ends up really distressed and then we all end up really distressed!! I think something must have happened to him in the past, but we shall never know!
I can't really afford to take him to the groomers regually, but if that's what he needs then thats what he needs! Any advice gratefully recieved!

LOL! He's a guy, he doesn't need no bath until he's stinkin'!

Yep, and even then it's a struggle!! Once I covered him in shampoo and took him down the river to swim it off!! Naughty I know!! But much easier than struggling with a 70lb dog who doesn't want a bath!!
Why does he love swimming so much and hate the bath?!!
