Wolves in the wild are surprisingly tidy animals that spend a lot of time keeping themselves clean. They will give themselves baths in nearby water sources, and pack members will even help groom each other through a series of behaviors like licking each other's coats and removing debris with their teeth.
Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
