Default question about showering my puppy

I have an 11 week old puppy and wanted to know if it was ok for me to shower him. I heard it might not be the best thing to do since they use their body as a defence mechanism for certain illness when they are puppies. I just don't want him to get sick on me after I shower him. He has all his shots up to date and is due for his next shots this Friday.

I gave my puppy a bath at 8 weeks after I got him home, but he was filthy. he never got sick. I'm not an expert on the situation, but i just used a dab of original dawn soap. but you definitely shouldn't bathe them very often at all.

We start bathing puppies in my grooming salon at eight weeks. I have never seen, nor heard of any ill effects. Just use a gentle puppy shampoo and you'll be fine.
