|When they are pups they often needs baths every week or every other week. For a pet not dog being shown, a bath every month, or two months is usually sufficient. Some don't do it that often and are fine.
My dog who is not being shown gets a bath about every 3 months and is kept clipped down in a shorter coat.
|Cinde has had 2 baths since March. She is a clean dog and does not smell.
Only the groomer so far as she is a rescue. She had never been bathed before that. YUCK we never got to see that. She was a mess.
Fergie on the other hand gets a bath every 2-3 weeks. She is a 5 month old. I want to make sure she likes her bath, I use dog oatmeal shampoo.
Hope this helps.
|My Cody is 14 months now,I started out bathing once a week with baby shampoo..Now I try once a month..I just bathed him last night..I do it all myself..(what a back breaker!)..No special tubs or tables..(can't afford them right now..)takes me about 2 - 3 hours for bath,drying,combing & trimming..I would take him to petsmart,however I am affraid he'll bite someone..He has never been..|
|When they start to smell doggy, give em a bath!
Pooh will get one on Tuesday, cause he's stinky, and his last one was August 11th ish.
|Right now we are trying to grow coat on Frank and trying to fit in a weekly bath schedule. Having a bath once a week doesn't necessarily mean your dog will have skin irritations. Usually that means other things are going on to effect his coat, like diet. I would definitely try to use a dog shampoo rather than people shampoo. People shampoo contains more alcohol from what i understand.|

I definitely agree on using a dog shampoo over most human shampoos. But, I did find that the more expensive, organic brands are pretty low in alcohol and elements that can result in a waxy and/or stripped out feeling-- both in human and dog hair. I'm allergic to a lot of products (skin allergies) and very fine, fragile hair so I read every label and try lots of stuff to see what works and what doesn't. I've had really nice results using M.O.P. (modern organic products) both on me and Clyde! They aren't as fragranced as Aveda and leave Clyde's hair feeling very soft-- I've been using the leave in conditioner after bath and it's been keeping him pretty manageable.
|I find that the doggie smell can sometimes go unnoticed after a while, i mean at the moment i have a cold... but i dunno you get used to it and its not quite so pong-y. I bath Phoebe every 2wks approx at the hydrobath place, they have these DIY booths, like a car wash place.... and i take Phoebe in usually with a mate to help... and we spend about an hour there, the drying part takes ages, even with there big hair dryer machine. Its not bad, i pay A$21 for using their stuff, which is kinda nice cos i hate cleaning up fur and towels etc... and Phoebe comes back smelling fresh.|
|I found that if you brush regulary they dont need to get too many baths . I know you might think i am daft but i used to use fairy washing up liquid mixed with water to wash bobby and it brought his coat up lovely . You dont have to spend a fortune on shampoos to make them look great.|
|love the irish lingo! what is fairy washing up liquid?|
|Hi valerie .Sorry about that , Fairy washing up is for washing the dishes . I used it for 12 years . You mix it with water in a basin and it makes it easier to wet and wash a heavy coat . It is great if your dog doesnt really like the bath its very quick to do. Another thing i used to do if he was smelling or just looked a bit grubby i would get baby powder and brush it through his coat . It would bring up his white lovely and give him a nice smell aswell.|
|We are on no set schedule around here! But I'll tell you they are due for one! I need Grant home to help because I cannot lift that Gooch, he's HUGE! Murphy will probably just jump right in the tub, he's the best!
I think that there are alot of factors to consider with when to bathe! I agree that when they get smelly...it's time!
|I LIVE IN ITALY,IN FLORENCE, AND I SPEND MY LIFE ABOUT 25 YEARS WITH OES,I WASH MY OES VERY SOON,EVEN 2 TIME A MONTH,HER BLANKET IS AGAIN VERY BEAUTIFULL;|
|Be sure to check for an ear infection if you think your sheepie is getting smelly too soon! We discovered Nelson had a slight infection that made him smell bad all over. Since we'd had him in the lake swimming we thought that's why he smelled funny.|
|Bubba doesn't get a bath too often because he just doesn't get dirty. I thik he has had 2 since march. Bellatrix is bathed quit regularly. Every couple of weeks or so. (She likes to play in the litter box eewww) We just tried biogrooms whitening shampoo and it worked great . Her back legs are always very dingy but not any more.
|I give Jasper one every 2-3 weeks. I hope I can cut that down to about once a month when I finish cutting his hair.|
|my daughter, which i s manager at petsmart, told me that if your dog has any hot spots, use Selsen Blue Naturals Dandruff Shampoo. She says the vets use it and charge 50 dollars.|
|I've read websites that recommend Selsun Blue antidandruff shampoo for stud tail in cats and dogs too.|
|I wash my 3 dogs once a week and if too busy don't let them go longer then two weeks. I've been following this schedule for 7 yrs (Violet's age) We have a "walk in shower" which makes it much easier to wash them. The dog could be itchy if the shampoo is not rinsed out enough...just a thought.|
|Puppies need to be bathed every 2 weeks so that they get used too it and when they are older they should be bathed every few months the more you bath them every couple of weeks the more the dogs malt it is unhealthy too let the dogs have too many baths a year as it can cause skin irritation!|

Also as for human shampoo, I know this is gonna sound wrong but if it hasnt been tested on animals then it should not be used on them as it can be very bad for them ( I do not agree with testing on animals) but it is the only shampoo you should use on them
|my dogs dont get bathed very often. They get brushed, face and bottom gets washed and feet. Bathroom is upstairs and it causes chaos when they are bathed..x|
