So our dogs do NOT especially enjoy getting their bathes. In the summer when its nice and warm outside we bathe them with the hose in the yard, and then let them dry in the sunshine. Although they both would rather not get bathed, they always feel really great after. They run around and shake and do a little "after bath dance." Nekita especially enjoys being wiped off with the towel. Here is some video of her silliness as my roommate dries her with a towel.
