How Often Should You Wash Your Dog?
Every dog owner has been there — that moment when you get your dog into the tub and realize that giving your dog a bath is not going to be easy or fun. Some dogs take to the water like ducks, but even the most cooperative pooch can make a bath more difficult by splashing around, getting distracted, or just getting bored with the whole thing and jumping out of the tub sopping wet and soapy.
For dogs that can’t stand the idea of being clean, those are the least of your worries. It’s enough to make any dog owner or groomer wonder just how necessary a bath is in the first place. But even though most dog owners will agree that giving a dog a bath is necessary, they might not agree on how often they need to do it. If you’re wondering how often to bathe a dog or how often to bathe a puppy, the simple answer is that there is no simple answer.
