How often do you bathe a puppy?

We bathed our puppy about 2 weeks ago, but she seems to already have a stench again. I know you shouldn't bathe dogs too often because of dry skin, so what do you recommend?

  • I've always bathed my dogs every 2 wks and have never had a problem with dry skin (or too much stink lol).

  • I've been bathing mine about every 7-10 days - I use a special shampoo but her skin gets a little dry anyway but we can't stand her smell any longer. I got a humidifier last week for other reasons and that's really helped her too (for the dry skin) so maybe try that?

  • You know the local pet store likely has puppy wipes, They're in a package like baby wipes only geared towards dogs and puppies to help clean them after walks etc and are safe to use daily.

  • Whenever they are dirty ;) I bathed ours about once a week at first, mostly so she would learn that baths are a normal part of life and make it easier to bathe her later.
