    I have a random question… Every time my dog Benny gets wet (ex. after a bath or if it rains while we’re walking) he gets crazy excited and runs around as fast as he can. I was just curious if this is common or if it’s just my pup. I’m looking forward to your insight!

    • I am pretty sure this is a really common thing, every dog I’ve known has reacted this way after getting a bath. I think it’s their way of saying ‘thank you’ for the bath and their excitement is too much to handle. Imagine how happy you would be if you were washed after a month of no shower >.<

    • Hi Cody,
      It is very common to see frenetic periods of activity after bath time. There are a lot of theories as to why this happens but we do not know for sure.
      Take care,
