  • i have several dogs and we try to bathe them atleast 2 times a month.....our female weenie dog honey likes to rool around in anything dead she can find..and with living in the country its not hard for her to find something... but our rottie Sasha doesnt fit in the tub so i just push her in the pool when i can get her close enough to it.

  • for dogs that do not have a prescription, they should only be bathed once a month.

  • my golden ret. gets a bath once every couple of the summer i tend to do it more often cuz of the warm weather..but i usually get him bathed professionally, every october (around halloween), then right before christmas, then during spring break(middle of march), then again in beg of june.

  • Whenever she needs one, but not more than once a month, if I can help it. But with all the snow, she tends to get a little "doggyish" from her visits outside.

  • my dogs go to the groomers but they also get shaved its to hard to bath the huskey cause of his fur and to hard to do the small one cause well his small and its been kinda chilly here and it hard for me to bend down. and when they go to the groomers which will be before my baby comes it will be in either late may or early june.

  • I wash my dog's feet every day before I brush him, and wipe him down with a damp towel about once a week. In the summer he plays in the sprinkler every day and gets clean that way. He's a year old and we've only had him professionally groomed 3 times. He doesn't have that "doggy" smell. He's short haired but thick, fluffy undercoat. (Corgi.)
