On all my dogs I use baby Shampoo, it does not hurt there eyes and it does not dry out the coat. I believe if it is good enough for a baby then it is good enough for my dogs

We use Mane and Tail, its a horse shampoo with conditioner in it . Very gentle and can be found at most feed stores or Tractor Supply.

Mane and Tail does not have conditioner in it. It has a co partner that is conditioner .. I know I use it for my hair

And you can purchase it at Walmart in either the pet section or the hair section

I use any shampoo that has oatmeal for its base. I like how gentle it is.

Depending on the situation...

- if dog has skin problems and vet recommends bathing it would be everyday to every other day.
- weather can also make a big play. if it is really hot a good nice cool off bath is nice daily
- in general life of a dog some give there dogs baths once a week
- I myself give my dogs baths when they need them only. They were ment to have nature on them so leave it ... :D

But you must watch for if you intent to give baths in the winter time. Just like our skin they also get a bit drier in the winter and dandrif or dry skin can make a play.

I gave him a bath about a month and the next week he smelled again...I work him just about everyday either weight pull training or PP i thought it might be because of that...But i need to bath him atleast every other week would that be cool

MY MIKADO 12-27-2007 01:34 PM

Well truth be told I have never bathed Mikado or Chalice. They play in the lake in the summer and roll in the snow in the winter. I don't think they smell like anything but dog. You could wipe your dog down witha wet wash cloth with a little doggie shampoo on it.

Thats it he smells like dog but i've been to people's home's that had dog's and didn't smell anything i just don't want my house to smell like dog

i bathe about once a month if not twice. I have a steam cleaner so i vaccuum followed by the steam cleaner. Keep your furniture the same way if they are aloud where you are! it works you just have to be conciencious. We have 3 dogs and I'm paranoid about the dog smell too lol. No one says our house smells like animals. I clean with bleach where I can and I dust often. Also change your air filters regularly.

I agree I don't want that dog smell in our house also wolfie sleeps with us at night so we make sure he gets a bath often. The funny thing is whenever wolfie hears the the water running in the bathroom he comes a running. we have to pull him away from the tub...and i thought dogs hate to be bathe

bkwil 12-29-2007 01:56 AM

Ok cool i thought i was some kind of smell freak:hammer: good to know there are other freaks like me tooooo... But from my understanding giving to many bath's is not good for there skin or coat
