Looking at the video, some dogs really don’t like/want to bath. One even look terrified by just hearing about it. Their responses looks very funny and cute!
However, their reactions open up a question: Do Dogs need to bath?
A search on the web gives: “Not All Dogs Need a Bath”
“Human skin differs significantly from a dog’s skin. A dog’s skin is much thinner, has no sweat glands, has a different pH compared, and is generally much more sensitive than human skin. Shampoos intended for human use, even “baby” or “pH balanced” brands, should never be used on dogs. Heavily perfumed shampoos should also be avoided, since they may cause an allergic reaction.”
“The frequency of bathing rarely causes any significant problems in dogs, provided that the appropriate shampoo is used. In fact, the major cause of problems tends to be due to improper rinsing afterwards. A shampoo residue can cause skin irritations if left on sensitive dog skin, especially around the ultra-sensitive scrotum or vulva. If there is any doubt as to whether the shampoo is entirely rinsed, rinse one more time.”
Some comments from internet:
“My children used to react exactly the same way when they were very little. Amazing. Dogs really are like little kids.”
“I’m not sure if dogs shake in terror in the same way that humans do. My dog shakes like that at any kind of anticipation, good or bad, big or small. Just because she’s shaking doesn’t mean she’s properly terrified.”
“Bath sounds like bad. My dog acts the same way when we say bath time. I wonder if she has associated baths with being a bad girl.
This isn’t any proven thing as far as I know, but it’s what I was thinking the issue could be.”
