Default How many times do you give your dog a bath?

I was just wondering how many times you give your dog a bath?

Sisco gets at least one bath a month...usually more in the summer because he LOVES getting dirty.

Whenever they're really dirty. So probably once every two to three months. Sometimes once every month. I try not to bathe my lab much, because I don't want her losing all the oil in her coat.

I bathe Tango every 2-4 weeks, depending on how dirty she is to me. She's a retriever and still has oils in her coat, no matter how may times I bathe her she can go outside, go for a swim and be dry within minutes. Maybe it's because I use a mild, high quality shampoo but I really don't believe that dogs lose their oils if they're bathed often. Maybe it's just her though, I don't know. I can't stand dirty dogs though so I'd never let her go any more than 4 weeks.

Winston and Morgan get bathed every 2-3 weeks. Morgan is always getting into something and gets filthy quickly and Winston's coat just feels disgusting after a couple weeks. I don't know why, it's not as if he rolls in the dirt or anything, he just gets gross. Tia, the mini Dachshund get's bathed every month or two usually. She doesn't get dirty often, never smells, and always looks shiney and feels clean.

I use a high-quality shampoo, but if I bathe her too often, her coat dries out a little. So I prefer not bathing her often. It's not necessary anyways.

Not very often. Just once or twice during his blow out season to help get rid of some of the loose fur.

The pups???Lol, every 2 weeks or so! The big dogs every month or so.

Depending on how dirty they get, they play rough and the pups still piddle and it sprays up on their legs when squating!!Lol............they roll in the dirt anyway!

I have to bath Hannah every two weeks for awhile because of the new baby my husband says she has to be bathed more or she has to go. I use shampoo and conditioner and every other bath now she has started going to the groomers and they use really good stuff on her.
