About every other week. He gets dingy-looking extremely easily.

I just towel him down for a couple minutes, and then he runs around like crazy throughout the house which dries him off a bit more lol.

About once a month for Enzo, probably closer to every three weeks. She comes to work with me quite often and gets stinky from playing with everyone else. Simon got a bath when he got here, and he's probably going to get another one next week, he still smells a bit.

I use a HV dryer at work on Enzo, Simon I haven't yet, but I will. Ozzy either towel dries or I use a regular hair dryer on him in the winter. He doesn't come to work with me, so I can't HV dry him.

I do NOT let them outside until they are 100% dry because they are jerks and will go roll in the dirt/grass to dry off.

For those of you who use forced air dryers or similar machines to dry the dogs off, how loud are they? Compared to say a human hair dryer?

I would totally just let Frodo run like a crazy fool around the house to get dry, but it's not my carpet, furniture, etc that he would be getting all wet

It's pretty loud. Like, a lot louder than a human hair dryer. Enzo does not like it, but she tolerates it. I think Oz would flip out. Simon, I dunno yet lol.
