Dogs produce natural oil to cover their coats to repell water, dust, and dirt. When they are washed not only is the dirty removed, but so is the oil. As their coats dry it produces this oil. Also when the dog is wet their skin is exposed dirt sticks better to wet / damp skin then to dry skin, then the hair will dry over the dirt. This can lead to infection and 'dry rot' of the skin.
