Hi guys, how often do you give your dog a bath? I give mine once or twice a week. Luckily, he likes water so bathing him isn't troublesome, but is quite tedious because of his size. Did you have any trouble giving your dog a bath?
I know that it's not that healthy to wash your dog often with shampoo and that it's recommended to wash them once a month. Of course you can wash it if it gets dirty or you have to clean it's paws.
My 2 dogs stay outside and one of them has never taken a bath I do wash them when they get dirty, but not the entire body. Both of them have clean coats and are free of fleas and other critters
Bathing the dogs has never not been hard. Makes for some hilarious stories though. We have purely outdoor dogs so bathing is not too much of a concern. They're usually fine the way they are. In fact the first thing they do once bathed is to roll around in the mud to get their usual scent(!!) back! I don't think they should be bathed too often no matter how mild the dog shampoo. I know we've always picked sunny days to bathe the dogs since blow drying them is not an option!
I always give my dogs regular bath everyday since I don't see any reasons to not let them take a bath everyday because as I observed my dogs really love them. It is also a way for them to feel relax especially if the weather is very hot. As much as possible I would really consider bathing them everyday.
My Aris just can't be bathed at home. He makes such a mess It is indescribable. What I do is I take him to a dog groomer or when I don't have enough money, I bring him to my dad's house and do the job in the backyard. He likes the water, even plays with the hose.
I used to wash him on a schedule but now I wash him whenever he gets gross, which is somewhat often because he loves to roll around on bird poop. I have to be vigilant on our walks because there's bird/goose poop EVERYWHERE around here and he will dive right into it if I don't stop him. He also rolled around on a dead crab he found one time.
My mom rarely gives the family dog a bath. I suppose she should. Anyway, he wallows on blankets which haven't been washed - and they're massively soiled with dirt and urine. Well, at least they should be cleaned.
I bath my dog twice a week but this is a big challenge because he like the water very much and now because is the winter season I was him in the bathroom and not outside in the yard as we do it in the summer season.
So, you can imagine how my bathroom looks after I was my dog there...
A tip I learned for bathing a dog that doesn't like baths is to wipe peanut butter on the wall of the shower. The dog will be pre-occupied licking the peanut butter and won't be as a big of a pain to deal with in the shower. Obviously, this might not work with all dogs.
Keeping my dog clean is an integral part of what I want to do on a daily basis for I have come to see that taking good care of the dog entails giving her a daily bath for that is going to make the dog look fine and free of diseases. I do this job of bathing her and she enjoys it.
