I bathe as needed, for my GSD that's usually 2x times a year unless it's an emergency In the summer I use the hose outside and in the winter I use the bath tub

Get a good shampoo and give the pup a bath, it won't hurt her and both of your noses will thank you. It's good to get them accustomed to being groomed - bath, brush, nails clipped, ears cleaned, etc. while they're still young and learning. Use lots of treats and patience so she'll associate it with all sorts of good things

Make sure all her bedding is washed as well if she's stinky; otherwise it defeats the purpose of her smelling so nice lol
