Dogs just aren’t shy about mixing up, playing in the mud, having a good time. And like their humans, dogs start to get smelly and grimy after a while.
With their wide variety of breeds, activity levels, and coats, there’s really no standard schedule for bathing Fido. However, there are a few guidelines you can follow based on the “type” of dog you have. Here are a few to consider:
- Active dogs – There are the diggers and the ones that like to roll around in the muck. These guys should be bathed once, or at least twice weekly.
- Long-haired dogs – Their coats pick up dirt and debris more easily than short-haired pooches, so it’s best to bathe them at least once a month.
- Skin allergies or skin conditions – It’s best to speak to a vet, since dogs with sensitive skin may have bad reactions if they’re bathed too often.
Here’s a guideline that’s really easy to follow: if Fido starts to stink, it’s time for a bath!
