Is it ok to shower or bathe with your dog?

Not in an inappropriate way. Like is it beneficial as in saving time and water?

  • Showering seems sensible to me, assuming the relative sizes of shower stall, dog and owner make it practical. Dogs do that shake and dance thing when they're wet that makes it inevitable that you're probably going to get soaked anyway, so why not reduce the laundry?

    Sharing a bathtub with a dog is a different thing entirely, since you'd end up covered in dog hair and need a thorough wash again afterwards.

  • I used to shower with my dog on occasion. He had a skin condition which required a special medicated shampoo and he wouldn't get into the shower without me, he just freaked out and hurt himself. If I showered with him he would relax and let me wash him and it was a much easier experience for everyone. I felt weird about it though.

  • I wouldn’t say bathing with the dog is a good idea. I doubt you would come out clean. With showing with the dog yeah it would save a little time but and water but not enough for it to be worth doing. And don’t worry I won’t make any of the obvious jokes about you wanting to have wet naked fun time with your dog.

  • My mom used to do that with our dog. Don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as you don't derive some sort of sick sexual satisfaction from it.

  • I wouldn't bath with a dog. But I used to wash my dog in the shower when it was too cold to do it outside. He hated it, but it worked pretty well.

  • You'd have to take a second shower I guess. Dog hairs get everywhere.
    I used to bathe my cat in warm water. He hated it.

  • Just me and my dog, hanging out in the tub. Lol that was a funny mental image. I used to bring my dog in the shower to bathe him. It was the most practical way. If I did it outside wuth a hose he would of course go and get dirty after. I would of course clean myself alone after the dog was done, so we weren't really saving any water I guess.

  • One of my dogs, Jayda, showers with me because she loves water. The rest I bathe.

  • I've never bathed with a dog, but I have showered with a dog, and have also done so with a cat. I don't think it's a very deal.
