    Default How Often Do You Bath?

    Just wondering how often you bath your poochie?

    Ruby gets a shower once a week with me, she loves it!! Some people say thats too often, but i know someone that washes their maltese every second day!

    My mum gets a dog groomer to come out once a month and do their little fluffy devil dog!

    I have now finally engaged a groomer who has my dogs on a fortnightly schedule. Previous to this I was washing them weekly although this had gradually become fortnightly over the last 12 months.

    My two get washed if they're smelly but it's usually a few months between washes

    Do their smishy faces need extra care?

    I wash Kaida probably every month, or fortnight if she smells - which she usually does at the moment as she's just discovered the joy of playing in mud.. yay!

    My dogs are both inside dogs including during the day so they stay pretty clean. I used to bath once a week or ever fortnight (when I only had one dog and she lived outside during the day and sometimes at night) but at the moment I bath when they are getting smelly or when they do something and get dirty and I don't want them in the house dirty LOL.

    I bath mine as needed. We go to the beach about once a week, she gets hosed off after that but I don't use any shampoo. If she rolls in something extra stinky, I get the shampoo out...

    Once a fortnight here. Can't reallly go any longer than that because Buckley always stinks after a week.

    Growing up, we washed our dogs once a week and i remember them smelling so nice all week. No idea why, but Buckley only stays nice smelling for a few hours! I miss his puppy smell!

    Once a month, sometimes once every six weeks. Carl and Jag don't shed. Mischa and Cleo have such short hair there's no point in doing it too often. None of them smell 'doggy', either! Since this week's been so wet, I've been walking them to a local oval which is just about under water, then rinsing them off (stomach, legs) when we get back. I don't count that as a bath.


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...
