Why dogs and cats hate baths? Do they hate water?When dogs choose to go swimming, they are in control of themselves, and no one is handling them. Being in the bathtub, however, is usually the total opposite. If a dog is in the bathtub, his owner often is holding him down and keeping him still. So it’s completely different things — it’s not simply being wet. Dogs detest baths because they find bathtub floors to be slicky, uncomfortable and hard to stand on.
Dogs and cats hate running water. Many dogs dread bathing simply because of the appearance and loud sound of running waters. Another reason cats and dogs might hate baths because they don’t like the smells of the shampoo.
But mostly dogs and cats do not like taking a bath. It can be a nightmare to give one to them. Make the time you spend with your cat or dog enjoyable for both of you. Whether it is cat or dog make them stand in the tub for short periods, gradually increasing the time. Feel free to feed him in the tub. When your pet is comfortable in the dry tub, it is time to add just a little bit of water. That way he can get used to the sound of the water. Start with the water just dripping and then increase the speed the water comes out of the faucet. Repeat the process with your pet in the tub—don’t get the dog or cat wet but get him used to the sound of the water.
