  • I bathe my Shih Tzu once a week.I use Sunsilk shampoo and conditioner in the pink bottles.I also trim her bum every week and wash her face with a waterless shampoo(made for dogs)about every other day.Check the dogs teeth--maybe they need to be cleaned.Maybe your dog is urinating on it's hair.If you have any other questions you can message me and I would be glad to help.

  • I have a cock-a-poo I take him to the groomer ever 6 weeks or so but he needs a bath EVERY WEEK. He gets a musty smell... yuck. I think its from the constant wet then dry after walks. He smells really bad. I went and got good smelling dog shampoo... nothing really works except for frequent baths.
