Why are so many dogs terrified of a bath but will play in any manner of outdoor water?

Thanks. As for slippery surfaces, we use a bathmat.
Never gotten mad at them for playing in the mud.
I'm pretty sure the shampoo probably plays a part, I don't smell like a dog anymore! 😁
If you've ever been around pet rats, they give themselves a thorough cleaning after handling to rid themselves of icky human germs.
