I was just wondering how many times you give your dog a bath?
Sisco gets at least one bath a month...usually more in the summer because he LOVES getting dirty.
Whenever they're really dirty. So probably once every two to three months. Sometimes once every month. I try not to bathe my lab much, because I don't want her losing all the oil in her coat.
I bathe Tango every 2-4 weeks, depending on how dirty she is to me. She's a retriever and still has oils in her coat, no matter how may times I bathe her she can go outside, go for a swim and be dry within minutes. Maybe it's because I use a mild, high quality shampoo but I really don't believe that dogs lose their oils if they're bathed often. Maybe it's just her though, I don't know. I can't stand dirty dogs though so I'd never let her go any more than 4 weeks.
Winston and Morgan get bathed every 2-3 weeks. Morgan is always getting into something and gets filthy quickly and Winston's coat just feels disgusting after a couple weeks. I don't know why, it's not as if he rolls in the dirt or anything, he just gets gross. Tia, the mini Dachshund get's bathed every month or two usually. She doesn't get dirty often, never smells, and always looks shiney and feels clean.
Every 2-3 months or if needed in between.
I use a high-quality shampoo, but if I bathe her too often, her coat dries out a little. So I prefer not bathing her often. It's not necessary anyways.
Not very often. Just once or twice during his blow out season to help get rid of some of the loose fur.
The pups???Lol, every 2 weeks or so! The big dogs every month or so.
Depending on how dirty they get, they play rough and the pups still piddle and it sprays up on their legs when squating!!Lol............they roll in the dirt anyway!
Every two weeks with a high quality shampoo, I hate the smell of dog!
I have to bath Hannah every two weeks for awhile because of the new baby my husband says she has to be bathed more or she has to go. I use shampoo and conditioner and every other bath now she has started going to the groomers and they use really good stuff on her.
I used to get away with not bathing Sawyer for almost 2 months, just brushing out the dirt, but now that I'm back at my old job and the daycare grounds there, it's every two weeks at the maximum. Once a week would probably be best for my nose, but not his coat, so I deal with it and have a great deoderizing spray to use before he gets brushed.
My dogs aren't purdy show dogs so they only get bathed if they've been in the lake(stinky nasty) or been rolling in poo.. So usually once every 2-3 months.
But I groom them everyday and spray them every other day.
Hmph. We've never given Oso a bath. Ever. He's a small chihuahua/whippet, and is self-cleaning. Perhaps he learned it from the cat. He smells like sweet milk.
Barley, on the other hand, gets a bath about once every 3-4 weeks, or whenever he rolls in fish guts or dog poo, whichever comes first. When he gets muddy, which is about twice a week, I just take him for a swim in the river.
Maddie gets bathed and groomed every six weeks. I sometimes bath her once in between if she gets dirty, goes for a swim, and has an allergy reaction to soothe her skin.
The other two are 2-3mo, some times a little longer. My "wash and wear" dogs, since they don't roll in anything or get excessivly dirty anymore they get along with some conditioning/deoterizing spray and a good thorough brushing for quite a while.
Stella, my poodle mix, gets a bath every other month (when she goes to the groomer) unless she gets into something stinky. I don't bathe her unless it's absoloutely necessary due to her dry skin. She gets brushed about twice a week to freshen and fluff up her coat.
Also, when I do give her a bath, I use Mane 'n'Tail Shampoo and conditioner. It makes her coat so soft, fluffy and shiny!
I bathe my pets about twice a month, with the exception of my cat who only gets a bath rarely.
My dogs get bathed maybe once every 2 months, depending on their activities and what they got into. My puppy seems to get a bath every other day, because he either, pees in the crate (for attention, because he does it RIGHT after I bring him in), or rolls in poop.
every other week
Try not to bathe your pets too much, its bad for their skin and fur.
