Shih Tzu is Afraid of Baths and Grooming

I have a Shih Tzu that doesn't like to be brushed, bathed, or groomed. She bites when you try. Any suggestions as to how to overcome her fear? Now I have to have the vet give a shot to put her to sleep and then take her to the groomer to be groomed.

We have a beagle that acts the same way. She doesn't like baths and bites us when we try to cut her nails. We have had success when we take our time giving her a bath. We put her in the bathroom and let her adjust to the idea. Start using treats to get her into the tub and then start the water and the soap. The entire process can take up to an hour but it's less stressful for our dog.
