I know I see alot of post about grooming and bathing. I see alot of people say they rarely to never shower there dogs. My vet also recommends not showering to often, is this due to the coat, or another reason. I was also wondering, because I am still trying to get potty training down. I shower her maybe every other week. I know its alot, but seeing as she is an inside dog who sleeps in a crate, and spends most time in the crate other than training or potty breaks. If I am not quick enough to take her out she will pee in her crate, and if i don't catch it to fast she will lay in it. We typically shower her if this is the case. Is that wrong? or will a rinse suffice. Also we live on an island, so we do not have natural lakes or creeks, so we take her to the beach and shower her after. is that also something I should just rinse her off after.
I am also curious about blowing coat. Can someone give me insight to this. I have not experienced it is it because she is still young. Is there any seasons where it occurs, or periodically?
Thanks in advance for all the help and assistance.
