That's probably true but I have a sensitive nose.

I bathe once a week. Double wash, double condition with pantene pro v. He smells nice and get's a night inside the day of the bath.

scuba_bob I used to do it whenever he needs it which was like twice a year... But I've changed that to once every week or two, think regular bathing is better.

sabre1106 I try to do it once a month as needed. If he get dirty while at the park in between baths I just hose him down real quick.

Daisy&Lucky's Mom About three times a year for the girls. Usually right before Thanksgiving,around ST Pats and then early/late June.The pond is ususally is involved in the closeness of the march and the June bath and other sporadic need a bath occassions. Lucky on the other hand believes water will killl him but likes the groomer. He gets a bath twice to three times max.

Ruby'sMom If we know we are getting house guests everybody gets a bath. 😃 Ruby had her first beginning of August. My springer goes to the groomers. I don't anticipate anyone until next summer.

Cassidy's Mom The MicroTek is reasonably priced if you need something for occasional itchiness. It's much less expensive than the KetoChlor I'm using for Keefer, which is prescription only. There's a spray too:

bob_barker Bob has been itchy too, that's why I started my other thread.. About which shampoo everyone uses... I usually use an oatmeal shampoo on him but I'm out. So before getting more was interested to see what other people use.

Omg it's my favourite thing they do when they get out of the bath!!! Zoomies galore!!!

I figure they just feel so good after having a bath superG ... Haha that's my explanation for it. I'm sure there is something more correct though lol
