Default Anal glands

How often do you guys get your dogs' anal glands expressed? I've never met a dog who needs them done as frequently as Chester - I think I end up having to do it about every 2-3 months - and I know most of my dog owning family/friends never have to get it done. I've never quite gotten the hang of how to visually tell, and he's not a very smelly dog in general so that doesn't help much. I take him in to have it done when he starts scooting - sometimes the vet, sometimes the groomer, depending on what else he needs. A couple of times the vet commented on how full they were, too. Did Chester just get the short straw on the anal glands?
