I would only do the dip if necessary. Dips force chemicals to fix the mange not the dog. What I mean is a weakens immune system allows thf mange to pop up. Dips clear it up but not naturally by strengthening the immune system.
Very good advice here but I'd add a few things

Nothing will boost the immune system better than a raw diet.
Permethrin in a dog friendly insecticide that kills mange mites.
I also like cephalexin @ 500mg twice a day.
Ivermectin @ .5cc for 10-14 days.
I brush 3-4 times a day to stimulate the hair follicle
Moisture and bathing isn't the best idea as dampness is something the mites enjoy and flourish in.

Once the redish pink color is gone is when u know the mites have been destroyed.
