Dog Grooming

How often do you bathe your dog? Do you do it or do you take him to have it done?

I take my Boxer to PetSmart every couple of months when he needs his nails clipped and his ears cleaned to be bathed. Otherwise I bathe him at home every other week.

  • My dogs go into the shower with me every month or so in the winter in the summer we have a pool and if they get so stinky then we do the same.

  • I bathe mine outside during the summer, it's warm and they are super hairy. I clip their nails, big money saver ;) Otherwise, I either take them to Petsmart or a do it yourself bathing place..

  • I have 2 Shelties. I bathe them myself every week or two depending on how dirty/stinky they get. I brush their hair and teeth every couple of days and cut their nails once/week.

  • I do all 6 of my dogs every other week when they are not showing or are retired.The yorkies are clipped down and the shih tzu is growing her coat out after having a litter this past spring.I do the 3 adult yorkies on 1 day then the shih tzu,the dachshund,and the yorkie puppy the next day.The shih tzu is the most time consuming.
