  • At least once to twice a month unless they get into something really stinky or dirty. Then we bathe them right away. Like if we take them to the forest preserve, they will usually get a bath right afterwards because they usually end up swimming in very dirty water and sometimes will find a dead thing to roll in. Silly dogs.

  • Once a month during winter time. during summer I would trim his hair few times a month, so I would was him after.

  • As needed. It could be once a month, or four times a year. My dog is a house dog, so he doesn't spend all day outside getting smelly and dirty.

  • Usually once a month, right before I put her flea prevention on. Any more often then that would dry out her skin.

  • Once every couple of months.

  • Before my Orla passed, it was a weekly event. She got a hot oil treatment, and blow dried, and all fluffed up (she was a gorgeous Pomeranian). She loved bathe time- she was one of my kids, and it was part of our special one on one time.

  • I have a yorkie that is WAY more terrier than cute little lap dog-he gets a bath alomst every week bc he was digging in the mud, or rolling in something. The two cavaliers get groomed daily-but washed every 2-3 weeks and fluff dried. Then the doxie gets bathed every 6-8 weeks. She rarley gets dirty and never smells.
