How often can I bathe my dog?

Pets live in closer quarters with us than ever before, including in the bed with some of us, many pet lovers are wanting to keep their pets as clean as possible.

Pet owners have heard some kind of warning about “not bathing a dog too often because it dries out the skin”.  And it is true that a harsh shampoo can strip the natural oils out of the skin leaving it dry, flaky, and itchy.

Here’s the good news! With the right kind of shampoo, one that doesn’t strip out the natural oils, it’s perfectly safe to bath a dog as often as you like.

With a properly formulated shampoo, you can bathe a dog once a week, with no worry about drying the skin.
