I give Blizzard a bath every Sunday. I use Spa Lavish conditioner after shampooing (both have oatmeal to prevent drying). I haven't noticed any dry skin issues.

I bathe and blow dry Sophie once a week, every Sunday morning. We don't have any issues with her skin or coat being dry.

So for people worrying about dry skin with weekly baths..... we can put your worries to rest.

My two get bathed every other day during "low" allergy season, and daily during high allergy season.

No dry skin or coat.

It is all in the products you use.

If you use products that have chemicals, it will dry the skin/coat out.

I use all natural products - no soap, no chemicals, no fragrance ("fragrance" listed that way in ingredients is a chemical) - I add my own essential oils myself, right now it's Peppermint & Tea Tree oil.

If you worry about drying the coat, do a coconut oil condition once a month (rub it on and let them set for 30 minutes)

How do they let it stay on them for 30 minutes while they are wet and shivering?

Hehehe...that's a good question. I feel like a monster when she's in that tub shivering. She sees me pick up the towel and it's like a kid on Christmas morning. SOOO excited.

I have been bathing Gucci every 6 days or so. I haven't had any issues with dryness, but she's still a puppy, so I don't know if that has something to do with it. -- I DO need to find some good shampoo and conditioner though because I'm using PetHead and I don't know if that's going to bite me in the butt in the future.

I bathe Leila every week to week and a half, depending on the need. She's potty pad trained, so she doesn't get outside to get dirty very often. Her bathing is actually for my own pleasure in having a fresh smelling and looking puppy. I use either the Pet Silk shampoo and conditioner or the puppy ones made by Kong. I actually like the Kong better as far as leaving her hair really soft and smells great too. I always use conditioner no matter what brand I'm using.
