    Bernie is going to have his first 'bath' today. He's four.
    His winter under coat is hanging off him in tuffs, and its not clearing the dirt from the lake.
    so its all clogged up n on the nose!

    We are going to try a car wash nearby that has a dog wash. Ive no idea what it is, but gonna give it a go.
    He's got a nice marrow as a pressie afterward.
    Water + Bernie = "woohoo! my favourite thing, let play" should be fun.

    Haha there is NO WAY i could leave koda that long without a bath... his fur gets so thick in winter i have to regularly bath him to get all the knots out with conditioner! and thats plus a weekly brush!
    Dodge is alright.... but she stinks when she's not bathed
    and i like my dogs to smell nice... even though they are outside dogs
    Is Bernie an inside dog? doesn't he smell when not bathed for that long?

    There are people who believe dogs shouldn't be bathed, that it is bad for their skin. I have a friend who belongs to this group, her 8 year old Maltese cross has never been bathed. He has the run of the house and the yard and never smells! I've reduced the frequency of Misha's baths due to her sensitive itchy skin. She gets a bath once every 6 weeks and brushed at least twice a week and her skin is much healthier. If she gets dirty I give her a wash down with water but no shampoo.

    I suppose it would depend on the dog too... cause some dogs just don't smell...
    Dodge absolutely stinks if she is not bathed... probably the fact she is often rolling in dead things doesn't help
    Koda doesn't smell as much as Dodge does... but i find a regular bath is still good for his coat

    Well, we settled on hose pipe and baby johnsons shampoo. (i dont buy dog bathing equip as you can see).
    Twas fine, he did "stand" command for the 20 mins it took to rinse him.

    I am in the camp of not believing you need to bath a dog, unless its rolled in something god awful!

    I do however groom him thoroughly extreemly frequently. He never smells, except this week coz he's rolled - urgghh in something very pongy.

    I dont show my dogs, but with bernie, he's always drawing complements on how well he's kept. This is a dog that lives bush life style, and swims daily. Seems to keep his coat in great condition.

    Generally, i have never bathed any of my dogs in life. I brush them instead.

    so yeah, a bath every half a decade, is probably the frequency id recommend lol

    You need to consider every single kilo when considering bathing options, Bernie is 56kg, so no, im not lifting him into any old bath.
