To tell you the truth I only bathe my dogs every 6 months or so. Or if they get really dirty but I have shorthaired dogs.

The oils put really nice shine on their coats so the less I wash them the less they lose the oil. If the get to smellin doogy and foul I will bathe them

You should never bathe any dog more than once a month. If you bathe them more than that they will get dried out and start itching and if you do it long enough it will lead to serious skin problems. Also, if you bathe a dog too often, they will actually start producing more skin oils to compensate for those being washed off. This will cause them to smell even though you just bathed them. A lot of people don't realize this and they bathe their dogs every other day and are like "why's my dog smell?" Obviously if they fall in the toilet or roll on a dead animal, you can bathe them before the month is up, but under normal circumstances, no dog should ever be bathed more than once a month. Perhaps the groomer didn't rinse the dog all the way. If she feels greasy, that may be the problem. What kind of dog is she?
