Here are just a few safety issues to consider: * can you safely lift the dog in/out of the sink or bathtub, * will the dog stay there, without jumping out and causing injury, until done * does the dog need anal glands expressed & do you know how to do that without causing harm * does the dog need nails trimmed & do you know how to do that * can you protect the dog's ear canals, eyes, face sufficiently from soap & water to prevent other issues

You're going to be the best judge of that. It can be done safely, but sometimes it's better to go to a pro.

Yes absolutely just use a Luke warm water and dog shampoo. Rinse thoroughly. Most people bath their dogs in their bathtub.
