Benefits of bathing
Removing dirt and odour- Who like to cuddle a dog all covered in dust and grime? Since you spend a lot of time in close proximity with your dog it is hygienically very essential to keep them clean and germ free at all times. We all know how much dogs love to roll on the ground and consequently catch dirt and dust all over. Bathing them removes dirt and odours from them keeping them clean and smelling fresh. The added advantage is that it will in turn keep your house clean too as you dog is not leaving his dirty paw marks all over or rubbing his not so clean body on your furniture, carpets and upholstery.
Closely examine your dog- A bounding, energetic dog leaves no time for you to examine him closely. But while giving him a bath, you will have time and opportunity to get up close and examine him carefully. Bathing time gives you a chance to look more intently at their skin, paws, eyes, ears and all other parts of their body. You can check their body for bumps, irritated or swollen areas, ticks and fleas, any rashes or any place which your dog is reluctant to get touched thus indicating pain or soreness.
Remove potential toxins- Most likely, your dog does not wear dog shoes. In that case he is susceptible to catch everything they step on. It could be fertilizers or pesticides as you walk him in a park, mud that may have potential germs and pests, needles from plants and likewise. It could turn worse if they decide to lick their paws and in turn accidently poison themselves. Washing them thoroughly reduces the chances of any such mishap.
