Currently I bathe Quigley once a week, since our obedience and agility classes are held at a public park, in areas where dogs pee and poop when the area isn't coned off for classes - and you can definitely smell that after practice.

There are good quality shampoos that do not strip the coat of its oils, so I'm not worried.

Its a myth that bathing a dog too much is bad for its skin. What does the damage is the low quality, highly detergent shampoos that are sold in alot of the pet stores. If you buy a good quality shampoo, that is free of soap and detergents their oils will not be stripped. I've seen people who've gone 2 years and never had their dogs bathed because they've heard baths are bad for dogs and as a result have nasty skin problems. Think of show dogs, they get bathed and groomed regularly and have beautiful coats and skin. Its all in how its done and what products are used.

Usually every few months, or more often depending upon my allergies. They really don't need it - it's for my benefit!

Emma get's bathed every month, she gets too dirty to wait any longer. Moco goes to the groomer every two months or so.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
