How often should I give my dog a bath?
Frequency of bathing depends on your dog's breed, activity level, and lifestyle. Most dogs don't need a bath more than once a month. Some dogs tend to be a little greasier or love rolling in mud and other dirty stuff, so they'll need to be bathed more frequently. Remember, bathing your dog too frequently can strip the coat of protective oils and cause skin irritations. When your dog does need a bath, be sure to use a shampoo that was specifically designed for dogs, because even the most mild human shampoo is not formulated for your dog—and it can cause dry, itchy, irritated skin. If you're not sure about how often you should bathe your dog, ask an experienced groomer or your vet.
