In the summer months I bath them (or send them to the groomers) every other week.
After we get the second heavy frost, no more baths unitl spring usually.
I use TropicClean , Natural Shampoo, either oatmeal and tea tree or Berry Clean, with peach, papaya and strawberry. They both smell great!

I wash my dogs every three to four weeks. I live in So Cal so it can be done pretty much all year long. Keeps the doggy smell away! lol

Since mine is inside almost all the time and is allowed on the sofa and in the bed, she gets a bath about every 2 to 3 weeks. It does not seem to bother her skin at all and she is so nice and soft after a bath. I use an oatmeal dog shampoo from Wal Mart, it was about $3.50 for a big bottle which lasts a long time. I tried the Johnson's Baby shampoo but it made her itch, though my previous dog was fine with it.

I wash mine once a month or more if Daisy gets dirty playing in the shop. Less in winter and more in summer. I think her skin and coat are nicer for it. Never had any problems. No doggy smell allowed in my bed. Despite the fact that they don't bathe naturally doesn't mean that they don't benefit from it IMO...they also never had gourmet dog food and a down feather bed in the wild. :tongue:

My dog likes to roll around in holes she dig in the backyard, especially after the rain...sometime I have to wash her twice in the same day. I wash her at least once a week to keep her smelling fresh, but usually more than that 'cuz she can't help but get herself really dirty. She's fine with a lot of bathing and enjoys it.

i bathe my dog pretty often, sometimes every other week, but usually at least once a month. As long as your dog is on a good food and you use a good shampoo, you can wash them as often as you want.

I hardly ever bath my dogs. I used to bath Venus ALOT and she is very seceptable to dry skin which made it worse. I might bath them if they decided to roll in dead fish or something but generally I give them regular rub downs with a towel. They like it ALOT better than baths and it helps romove excess oils, dirt, hair and dander.

Stockey really doesn't have much of a doggy smell, so he only gets bathed when he needs it -- usually a couple of times in the spring when the snow's melting and everything's a muddy mess, and maybe a few times in the fall. That's about it.

In between baths I'll just wipe him down with old towels and warm water (which he likes ALOT better than baths). I have a lot wild basil in our lawn at the moment and Stockey loves to roll it -- so he usually smells sorta herbal and aromatic.
