|lennyb||Thanks for the ideas.. I forgot about the do it yourself places, there's one not far from me. I would take him to the groomer but last time the said he was to un- corroperative and to figgity. He didn't bite but I think he makes them nervous. I'm going to try the diy place this weekend.|

The best way to bathe a GSD when it's cold outside is to let a professional groomer do it. Otherwise, it makes an ungodly mess of your bathroom and it just isn't worth it. Believe me, it's ~$50 well spent.
After I lost my grooming salon in a fire, I took my own dog to another groomer while it was being rebuilt. The idea of bathing my own GSD in the house? No freakin' way, I know how much of a mess it makes. Besides, groomers have high-velocity dryers that blast out all the shedding hair, and there's just no way you can properly dry a GSD in cold weather without one.

Either outside or at someone else's place like do-it-yourself doggy bath.
Even with the best behaved GSD it is a mess with water and hair everywhere.

There is no way my dog would follow me into the tub, she hates water! I tried swimming with her, she's very attached to me and I thought if I waded in and called her, she'd jump in. Nope! She cried and cried but would not go in.
I found using warm water made it better, before all I had was the outside hose and the water was cool. I have a non-slip mat in the tub and use the handshower. She doesn't fight nearly as much as she used to, but usually whines while I do it. I just try to be quick! lol She has gotten better, but she will never love it. She doesn't have to, she just has to tolerate it.
If you do think he might bite, then be safe and get him used to a muzzle so you can use it at bath time.
