I only bathe my dog at the end of summer when no longer taking him to the beach ,his coat is shiny as and vet says there's no problem with this but my friend washes her dog ev'ry month and reckons that " i'm slack"
I've always thought that too much bathing is not good for dogs ,what do others here think?
I 'googled' anyway and found this ( among other handy info )
Shampooing dogs too often dries out their coat and removes their natural oils. Even humans would have healthier hair if we washed it less.
Short haired dogs such as Labs, Pugs, and Beagles, do not need regular bathing. These dogs do shed a lot and particularly in the spring it might be a good idea to bathe them.
