My dogs swam in chlorine every day for almost two years, I'm sure they could have better coats but it never caused discomfort or concern. I figure that must be worse than shampoo an conditioner, maybe not?

I did however think this was asking if weekly baths were okay and I think that's far more ideal than daily.

I'd use conditioner if he HAS to be bathed that much. Logan gets bathed every 1-2 weeks. I wish i could go longer, but I'm lucky to get to 2 weeks before he gets to the point where I feel he's too gross to go in public. He's getting a bath tonight, actually.

Between running at the flyball field and swimming at the lake once or twice a week my dogs get bathed weekly. We just make sure to use a conditioner (but not very much)

I suppose he doesn't HAVE to be lol really, I think it would be fine with just a rinse or conditioner rinse if that.

I just like the shampoo and the whole process

I work at a dog boutique so get access to all the shampoos. We have all kinds of professional ones.. all are diluted (they come concentrated).


I'll start just rinsing him off or trying some wipes.
Dammit.. I love that he always smells like flowers!! LOL

Most show dogs get bathed weekly. Shouldn't be a problem unless you use a really harsh shampoo like dish soap, or the skin/coat is dry to begin with.

I would do a conditioner for sure though since it's so often, I do that now but for a show it's a different shampoo and no conditioner.

Journey gets bathed about every 10 days, but last time I just used conditioner as she was looking a little dry. Partly because my city is super dry, especially mid winter, but probably partly from being bathed often. Rinsing her and then just using some conditioner seemed to get her clean without drying her out though. She gets so filthy on the way to and from work and then laying on the store floor makes her feel icky too, so I kind of need to bathe her regularly. I will probably use shampoo every second bath for a while though.

I agree with the not over shampoo-ing and conditioner. You don't want to strip too much oil out of the coat.

I try to brush dirt out of my guys coats more than bathe them.

When Juno's allergies are flaring (which is during a large portion of the year lol) I will give her weekly baths and she never dries out... but I use Earthbath on her, which I wouldn't consider a "harsh" shampoo. Daily might be excessive though! I'd stick with maybe once a week bathing, and do the wipes and/or colognes (Buddy Wash has delicious smelling ones!) inbetween.
