"Does your senior German Shepherd really need to be bathed regularly?

I mean, really, old dogs just lay around all day, so how dirty can they possibly get, right?"

Wrong. Regardless of a German Shepherd's age, like humans, to maintain optimum health and happiness, they need to be bathed regularly. In fact, I would argue that bathing is even more important for a senior German Shepherd because it's the perfect time to inspect him for any new lumps, bumps, sores, or other health issues that you may not otherwise notice.
