Once a week is too much in my opinion. It stips too many of their natural oils out of their hair and skin and can irritate their skin.

I don't like to give baths more than every 3 weeks or more.

HOWEVER. If you mean just spraying with a hose to cool down rather than using shampoo, that's fine! Dogs usually love water! You can also get a small "kiddie pool" and set it up for mini swims

Why are you bathing so frequently? If you're concerned because it's so hot, I agree that just hosing him down to cool him off is fine. I usually give my dogs a bath every month or two, which is much more often than many others do.

I bathe my dogs at least once a month. :) But if it's hot out, they just get water poured on them which they love.
