If your dog adores swimming but objects greatly to going into the bathtub, he's not an anomaly. His aversion to bathing likely goes far beyond the concept of simply getting wet. Fortunately, with a little time and practice, many dogs learn to tolerate taking occasional baths. Some dogs detest baths because they find bathtub floors to be uncomfortable and hard to stand on. Dogs might also hate baths because they don't like the smells of the shampoo. Anyway we don't really know the reason why these very dogs avoid having a bath, but there's one thing we know for sure: they do it in a truly professional way!
