You may look forward to your daily bath or shower, but the experience is an uncomfortable one for your dog. Your pooch doesn't understand that a bath means being clean. The sounds and smells of the bath, plus the feeling of water blasting at your dog's face, aren't its idea of fun. Most dogs should tolerate a bath as long as you ease them into the experience and you're sensitive to their reaction to the water. If your canine is extremely fearful of the bath, it may have been traumatized by water at a young age. Be patient and use plenty of praise and treats during bath time.
