    I'm currently looking after a foster dog and he needs to be bathed 1-2 times per week with aloveen (oatmeal shampoo) to keep his grass allergies in check. When I get my Border Collie Pup next week he will be bathed on a regular basis as I love to bath and groom dogs

    If you use a poor quality shampoo, you get crap results, were I work, we use Fido's everyday, Fido's white and bright, and aloveen as our primary shampoos and the results are always great (providing they are bathed properly!). I have found using a higher pressure, and bathing twice helps with dogs with the stubborn dirt stuck in their coats or on their skin. A squirt of Aloveen conditioner rubbed into the coat and left in also leaves it so soft and silky!!

    Yes well! I don't feel so bad now and to be honest don't mind 'normal' doggy smells and if any of my visitors were brave enough to mention it or cat hairs floating around my house they'd be told in no uncertain terms not to come back but most of my (ancient) pals are like me and don't give a rat's ar!@e
    Anyway, Jambo hates the bath routine,( maybe he's a Pom? ,same as me lol ) but he loves swimming in the ocean and a good brush cleans him up nicely after a quick hose down in the summer months.
    The secret to having everything is knowing you've already got it !

    I'm the same. I actually like a mild 'doggy smell'. I reckon it smells like horse hair, but then I have no idea what that smells like!

    I only wash my dogs when they have rolled in rotting organic matter. And then it's outside with a couple of buckets of warm water and a natural shampoo. For some reason stuff doesn't seem to cling to Banjo's fur as much as it did with my old dog. I've seen her roll in stuff and couldn't detect a smell afterwards. Though the worst one she did was rotting eggs from the compost and that was truly gag-worthy.

    Even when I forget to prevent Banjo from rolling in the dirt after a swim I don't bath her. At most I will brush out the sand when we get home or wipe her with a towel.
