Default How often do you Wash Your Malt?

Hello all!

Just curious how often your wash your baby? We take Rocko to the groomers each month or as needed, but we wash him ourselves every Sunday.

I don't want to dry out his coat so I was wondering how often you all do this?

I wash weekly, or more often if needed. I have no problem with dryness.

Bella goes to the groomer every other week like clockwork. In between, I use doggie wipes if she is looking a little dusty.

I bathe Bailey every week to ten days depending on how dirty he is. I find keeping him clean really cuts down on matting.

I never use whitening shampoo as that can dry the coat out. I do two shampoos, the first Earthbath Mango Tango or Tropiclean Papaya, then do a second lather with Earthbath Oatmeal and Aloe as recommended by Bailey's groomer.

I bathe and blow dry Zoe once a week. I don't have a problem with her fur drying out at all. I guess it also depends on what products you use. My favorite shampoo and conditioner is Spectrum 10 from Chris Christensen. It works really well and leaves the coat smelling and looking beautiful.

in Winter every 7-10 days depends on how dirty they get.I do bum cleanings every couple days, just to wipe off area for pee dribbles that get on the fur... USually summner they get bathed once per week ,they tend to get dirtier in the warmer months playing
