I know we do this every couple months, but we also have new people here so...suck it up and play.

Anyway, Frodo probably gets bathed every 2 months? Siri has had 3 baths in the year since she came home.

It's extremely noticeable when Frodo gets a bath, he gets poofy and super soft, and I love it. You can't tell at all when Siri gets a bath.

When I'm home, it's every other week for Em and every 3-4 weeks for the other dogs. It's a little more of an ordeal here, so not quite as often.

I usually bathe Roxie every month, the day before I re-flea/hwt her.

I've been slacking since December. I need to this month eventually, since she's starting to smell like a dog. Well, Roxie doesn't really have a "dog" scent... it's more of just a being dirty kinda thing. Otherwise she usually smells like awesome.

I try to do mine every 4-6wks. If I know the boys have a show coming up, I'll hold off til right before then. Speaking of.. they're all actually due for baths. Might just do that this weekend!

Ummm, Hudson hasn't had a real, full bath in like a year..... or longer. I actually think it was around Thanksgiving time last year. We have done some "spot cleaning" when he gets really muddy and he did get thrown under some running water on vacation to rinse some sand off of him. But he is pretty dirt repellent.

I used to bathe them more often but bathing Buzz is difficult these days (and time consuming). I'd say the dogs get bathed roughly every 1.5-2 months on average. I put both dogs in the treadmill at work today so they both got baths when we got home--because they were already damp!

I don't like gritty/greasy dogs. But I'm also more than happy to just rinse the dog off if I need to.

Probably every 2-3 weeks? Her fur is really easy and stuff just falls out of it for the most part, but I like to brush her while she's wet to get rid of dead fur. Plus then she smells like apples for a while after.

Penn is 18 months and has had 1 bath.. I have a deodorizer& I just spray that on her when she gets into something smelly. Otherwise mud& dirt falls right off her.

Whenever they need it? Varies by season and what we're up to. Kim tends to need bathing the most since she likes to roll in gross things and has some allergies, so when she needs a bath they all get a bath :p

Every 1-2 months. I could maybe go longer, but he starts to look scruffy and I feel compelled to groom him. To save blades I only trim after a bath, so his baths are dependent on my grooming OCD or dog show schedules.

He gets slightly doggy smelling by 2 months but not stinky. Dirt and mud fall off and he doesn't really feel greasy ever.

Full on baths, probably once a month. Rinsing off his legs and feet, pretty much every day in the spring, summer and fall.

Once every 1-3 months for Gavroche. He's super smooth when he's freshly bathes and I can't stop touching him, and he loves that lol.

Logan...ugh...every 1-2 weeks. His skin has just been so crappy this past almost year. I'm planning on getting him allergy tested and start injections as soon as I can, because we both hate this bathing all time thing. Sometimes he stays dandruff-free for a week after a bath, sometimes it's back as soon as he's dry. Sometimes he's soft and fluffy, other times I don't notice much difference.

Depends. Juno gets bathed the most often because she's the easiest (although it could be argued that she's the one who needs it the least lol). In the winter it's just generally once a month-ish, in nicer weather it's once a week or two.

Lucy just gets bathed when she goes to the groomer every 8 weeks. Sometimes I'll bathe her in between if she manages to get gross. She just ends up looking really ugly after I've bathed her so I try not to do it lol.

Happy doesn't get bathed in the winter (she somehow manages to be really awkward in the bathtub. It's much easier to bathe her outside with the hose). In nicer weather she's on the same schedule as Juno - once a week or so.

My dogs don't get "dirty" I just like having them bathed. Just like how I don't necessarily roll in dirt every day but I still like to take a shower lol.

Once a week at least.

He isn't particularly dirty (and amazingly, with his floof..everything just dries and falls right off)
But I get paranoid about the amount of dog drool/dirt/germs on him. Plus I like it when he smells all clean and fresh and it really cuts down on the shedding!

He likes baths and LOVES being blowdried/brushed so its a pretty easy process

Whenever they need it. *shrug* For some reason Fable stays cleaner longer than Millie. But yeah, if one needs a bath, they both get a bath.

Usually once a month is average for everyone here. Sir goes a little longer sometimes because he can get wiped down and we can see how clean he is so often.. Frag and recon both have skin issues so I spend more effort on keeping them looking good. XD

Usually every 4-6 weeks. Whenever they start to feel "unclean" when I pet them - and I say "unclean" because I don't think people who weren't around them 24/7 would notice the difference that I do after they've had a bath. LOL
