Have you ever wondered what the optimal temperature is for a dog wash? Crazy enough, what feels good to us as humans is actually too warm for your dog. The optimal dog wash temperature is between 85 – 95 degrees. If you give your dog a bath in higher temperatures, it raises your dog’s heart rate, which is not good for him or her. Hot baths are especially dangerous for the young, old, or sick dogs, and are uncomfortable for the rest. At Stonebridge Car and Pet Wash, our dog wash temperatures may not feel hot to your touch, but keep in mind that it will be just right for your dog.
