dog washing

Hi,
Everyone,
As a dog groomer, I would say not to wash your dog more often than every 2 weeks. And if that often, you need to use an oatmeal shampoo so it doesn't dry out her skin. In between baths, you can use wipes and grooming sprays if she's really stinky.
Never use human products on your dog. Good dog shampoos are soap free and won't harm their skin.

no offense but personally i think the oatmeal shampoos stink and dont do much for the dogs, but im not a groomer, our groomer doesnt use the oatmeal wash either but to each there own.

Me? I seldom if ever bathe a dog. Brushing them frequently with a soft bristled brush keeps them clean, odor free, and their skin and coat is good shape.

I don't see what your point is. Somebody started a thread on bathing dogs. You gave your opinion, I gave mine.

Two of our dogs here really likes water and jump on the river around 5 times a month and they are all totally fine.

You can get detergent free shampoo that doesn't remove the fur's natural oils.

Do those wipe things really work? My roommate tried some on her cat and it didn't seem to do anything at all.
