I used to get away with not bathing Sawyer for almost 2 months, just brushing out the dirt, but now that I'm back at my old job and the daycare grounds there, it's every two weeks at the maximum. Once a week would probably be best for my nose, but not his coat, so I deal with it and have a great deoderizing spray to use before he gets brushed.

My dogs aren't purdy show dogs so they only get bathed if they've been in the lake(stinky nasty) or been rolling in poo.. So usually once every 2-3 months.

But I groom them everyday and spray them every other day.

Hmph. We've never given Oso a bath. Ever. He's a small chihuahua/whippet, and is self-cleaning. Perhaps he learned it from the cat. He smells like sweet milk.

Barley, on the other hand, gets a bath about once every 3-4 weeks, or whenever he rolls in fish guts or dog poo, whichever comes first. When he gets muddy, which is about twice a week, I just take him for a swim in the river.

Maddie gets bathed and groomed every six weeks. I sometimes bath her once in between if she gets dirty, goes for a swim, and has an allergy reaction to soothe her skin.

The other two are 2-3mo, some times a little longer. My "wash and wear" dogs, since they don't roll in anything or get excessivly dirty anymore they get along with some conditioning/deoterizing spray and a good thorough brushing for quite a while.

Stella, my poodle mix, gets a bath every other month (when she goes to the groomer) unless she gets into something stinky. I don't bathe her unless it's absoloutely necessary due to her dry skin. She gets brushed about twice a week to freshen and fluff up her coat.

Also, when I do give her a bath, I use Mane 'n'Tail Shampoo and conditioner. It makes her coat so soft, fluffy and shiny!

I bathe my pets about twice a month, with the exception of my cat who only gets a bath rarely.

My dogs get bathed maybe once every 2 months, depending on their activities and what they got into. My puppy seems to get a bath every other day, because he either, pees in the crate (for attention, because he does it RIGHT after I bring him in), or rolls in poop.

Try not to bathe your pets too much, its bad for their skin and fur.
