A dog's ear is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. It's a dark moist area, and can be prone to ear infections if not cleaned regularly. If you're bathing your dog, take extra care to avoid getting water in his ears. If need be, you can place cotton balls on the insides of his ears to keep the shampoo and water out. This will help keep the ears dry and keep bacteria from growing in the ears.
