Wait! Before you let your dog in the house, get the mud off of him or it will likely be on everything.
If you’ve ever had a dog who’s played in the mud, you may understand what it’s like when he comes in the house. The power of mud all over a dog’s body somehow makes them excited, leaving your house vulnerable to muddy paw prints and swaths of mud left on the couch and on your beds. Murphy’s Law probably says something like ‘if your dog is muddy outside your house, he will be twice is muddy when you let him inside.’
Get that little guy cleaned up and free of mud before he does anything else.
Your dog may be excited after playing in the mud, or he could potentially even be scared. Either way, your little guy may be anxious or subdued and will wonder if he’s in trouble or if you plan to help. Though it might be frustrating to you, it’s likely just as uncomfortable, now that’s he’s done playing, for your dog.
