Once a month.  Their skin gets too dry if we wash them too often, so our vet said once a month with J&J baby shampoo.  Ours loves it too.  If we take them to the lake they do get a bath when they get home, the lake is gross fishy smelling water and I can’t stand the smell.  Funny side note:  I had a cat that loved baths, she would try to even get in the bath with me and try to get in the sink when I was brushing my teeth.

Once a week. I can’t stand stinky dogs. My dog is a lap dog too so she’s up in people’s faces a lot more than normal dogs.

I bathe my dog about every other week, so about twice a month.

Jackson only gets a bath maybe every 6 months.  He has self cleaning fur and doesn’t have that dog odor, so no baths needed!  He doesn’t really like the baths, but he’ll jump in the tub if you tell him to.

Every two weeks it seems.  She’s stinky again so I need to bathe her, but first I need a hair dryer.  She hates baths, but loves biting at the heated air.  I love it.

We’ve had him about 8 weeks and bathed him twice.  So once a month so far.  I wasnt sure if you could bathe him more cause I read it could dry out his skin.

@pinkshoes  I think you can tell if it irritates their skin. It would look more flaky. I think you should go by whenever the dog starts getting that “doggy smell”. ick

Our beagles are very clean. They walk around mud puddles at the park! They only get baths if they roll in something. They’ve had maybe one bath in the last year? They don’t smell either!

My furbaby is usually clean, I strive for once a month bath.

He tolerates it, but is not a fan of a bath by any means.

My dog isn’t keen on having a bath so he only gets washed three or four times a year which is usually when he gets stinky.

I have to tie Chopper up to wash him and when I let him off his lead he goes absolutely crazy and runs and rolls around like a mad thing!    I reckon he’s trying to get his doggy smell back again…

About once a month with oatmeal shampoo. She has dry skin and allergy issues so we really try no more than once a month. Usually we think she smells before our friends who are over all the time and not dog owners think so.

She does not like baths but will tolerate it. Usually afte a bah she’ll run circles around the house like a mad dog! Hahha
