I've always been told that more than 2 baths a year is rough on a German Shepherd's skin. How often do you bathe your dog, and is his coat shiny and healthy?
She's been doing very well on Dogswell which is a Whole Dog Journal recommended food. She also gets fish oil once a day. She is on antibiotics for a spinal infection, but no other health issues. What causes the doggy odor?If you feed a quality nutritious diet, the GSD should not have any odor, unless there is a medical issue going on.
What shampoo do you use?I bathe Tessa about every other week because she is my service dog. Emma gets bathed often but a bit less than Tessa. I don't want Emma to pass on a smell etc to Tessa. I also wash their bedding very often for this reason.
As long as you use a quality shampoo its fine. I like using a separate conditioner as opposed to a combo shampoo.
I feed raw, and give fish oil and vitamin e.
