There are a variety of factors that have to be considered in your dog’s bathing routine such as the breed, coat, health and activity of your dog. Healthy dogs who spend most of their time indoors may only need a bath once or twice a year, while a dog who is actively outdoors may need a bath more often, especially after some fun in the mud! Be careful not to over-bathe your dog. Bathing too frequently can actually dry the skin and coat and make your dog itchy. Excessive water in your dog’s ears can sometimes start an infection.
