Default does anyone elses puppy...

It seems that a few days before bath day Zoey starts to itch like crazy. I dont see any red areas or bumps and once she is bathed she seems to be fine. Could it be that my little girl dont like to be dirty, even though she loved to roll in the leaves in our back yard(it is priprivacy fencing). I dont want to give her a bath more then once a week but at the same time i dont want her to be so itchy. Any advice?

My guess would be environmental allergies. Does she go outside? Is it on her legs and belly?

Scratch that you mentioned the yard. :-) I yave heard of people using baby wipes and grooming wipes on hellies and legs when they come in to help with this.

Little dogs, especially when puppies, just seem to be like little dust rags. They pick up EVERYTHING.... We call Grace the Little Swiffer

I'd guess it is being dirty. Could you bathe her more often? Maybe that would help....

Oh my, good grief guys I'm sorry for all my terrible type-os, I'm usually on my android phone and after the most recent update, typing on the forums is a nightmare.

Lol i didnt see any typos i guess it is cause i make so many myself. I used a baby wipe on her and it seemed to help. It prb doesnt help that she LOVES to roll in the leaves. I have to get my Hubby to rake them up, he has been waiting till they all are done falling.
