Freestep I think I would die if I could only bathe my GSD twice a year. If you use a mild, non-stripping dog shampoo, you can bathe as often as necessary--as often as every 3 weeks if you want. Most of my GSD clients come in once a month. But brushing is more important than bathing. You can brush every day.

No wonder your Harry and Lola look so happy and fine....they have their own cement pond filled with salt water....nice !!!

Galathiel For me ..not at all over the winter (so far) ... several during the summer/fall as he loves water and especially loves to get in water and then run through sandy spots.

boomer11 Bathe them whenever they stink to YOU. You shouldn't have to live with a stinky dog. I only give mine a bath whenever he gets into some nasty stinky sewer type water. Anything else and he smells fine. A good spray with the hose is good enough for me. Bath with shampoo is twice a year if that.

trcy I was told about twice a year from the breeder. They washed him when I picked him up. He was 3 months old then and I just gave him a bath 2 weeks ago. He was almost 9 months. I could tell it was needed. He was feeling not so clean when I pet him.

Madisonmj97 You can bathe them as much as needed. I worked at a grooming salon and we would have this one GSD come in once a month for a bath! So you should be good
