Tiffany should get one every week, but I've been lazy and I've been doing it about every other week. Giving her a bath with conditioner really helps keep her coat from matting.

Whenever they start to smell or I can feel their coat is getting really icky. Maybe every other month or so?
Payton got a bath pretty much right after he got here, I haven't given him another yet, and he doesn't need another yet.
Auggie got a bath... uhhh... oh! The weekend before I got Payton, he got into something and we had to make him throw up, and he smelled bad because it got all over him. So a little over two months for both, and neither needs one yet.

Duncan hates water, won't even play in it. So I give him wet towel baths. It sucked when he got hit by that skunk.

I give Cameron a bath about every other month. I love her doggy smell, but her coat can feel greasy after a while. I just towel dry her, and then she runs around and slips all over the floors and gets Duncan all worked up.

Rarely...only when needed as in they get into something and are obviously dirty.

The beauty of wash and wear dogs is that all I need to to is wash and towel dry

Shar Pei and Basenji are also rather clean breeds so they usually keep themselves pretty clean. If Menchi ever develops any skin issues I will start a more regular regime with medicated shampoo for her.

I wash every 3-4 weeks usually. I would like to wash every 2 weeks but somehow I end up being too lazy or busy or just forget.

In the summer I throw her outside to run and fetch until she dries. If it's raining or in the winter, I lay out 4 or 5 towels on the floor and play fetch indoors and she'll rub herself on the towels until she's kind of dry.

If it's really really cold I might choose to blow dry her but it takes FOREVER and I hate doing it.

Usually once a month, or maybe every two months. Sako usually ends up getting bathed more, since he has to get them before every show.

I towel them all off a bit and throw them in their crates afterward to dry, nice and easy!

Oh yeah, I forgot to answer the drying question, LOL. I have the Metro Quickdraw Forced Air Dryer. I use that unless it's warm out, in which case I just let them run amok in the yard until they dry.

In the summer/spring once a month. In the winter/fall, every other month, or if they're stinky. My cat gets a bath more often than the dogs do.
