    DefaultFor those that do pet therapy

    I'm going for a class (people only) at UCLA at the end of March and then will go thru the Delta testing with Moose so we can do pet therapy at UCLA Medical Center. The brochure states that the dogs must be bathed prior to the visits. Our initial commitment is 2x month which over a years time will equate to 24x more baths than I ever give Moose in the same period of time.

    So for those of you that do pet therapy, do you bath your dogs before you go?

    No, but we don't go to the hospital, we go to assisted living facilities. I think as long as your dog is well groomed...clean,brushed,doesn't smell and nails trimmed...you should be fine.

    I used to give Mick a good head to toe brushing and a waterless bath the night before our visits. It was much easier on the old guy then a tub bath, plus his skin wouldn't handle that many baths. But we visited a school, not a health care facility.

    No, I don't bathe Sam. Brush good. Eyes, face, feet clean.
