Re: How often do you bathe your dog?
Mine is 8 months old and we got her at 9 weeks. Because she developed blow-out runs, the first few days, she was bathed 3 times a day.
After that was once a week for a month, then twice a month.
Now she gets bathed when she gets stinky, as she is VERY active everyday, as well as gets 2-3 times per month swims in the lake, so baths are about once a month.
With all this bathing she still has a very nice soft shiny coat, and I do nothing special. I even still wash her with the original cheapo Top Paw puppy shampoo, even though "they" say not to.
She is on a premium grain-free dog food, however, which may contribute to my not having to use conditioners or "adult" shampoo, even with all the bathing.
The nice thing about bathing often when they're young is that they get desensitized to baths, sprinklers, hoses, rain, etc., which darned convenient, until the time comes when you DON"T want them to run out of the house when it's raining, and you're late for a dinner appointment and you're all dressed up!
