Question how often do you bath your cockapoo???

Hi

Just wondered how often you bath your doggies? I gave rigby his first one yesterday which he loved!!

I don't want a stinky dog but also don't want to damage his skin- how often would you recommend bathing him?

xx

I think we all bath at different frequencies I would ideally like to bath about once a month but my guide tends to be how muddy Daisy gets or whether she has just rolled in something unpleasant! If you use a good quality shampoo it should care for the coat and not damage it. I used PAH puppy shampoo when she was younger and then moved on to Tropiclean shampoos and conditioner which is just lovely.

I agree whenever he's filthy really,his equafleece comes in handy especially at the mo with all the wet weather so I'm not having to bath him as much as I would.

When she is dirty...sometimes it is twice a month...or 6 weeks...it all depends. I only bathe her if she needs it.

I know you should bath them too much BUT when Izzie gets mucky sometimes she just has to be washed, there hasn't been many times when we've actually had to wait til she was getting smelly (only a couple of times) we mostly go on how mucky she gets, there's a beck on one of our walks & she's been in loads of times & the water in it is horrible & smelly! So she gets a bath everytime she goes in there. On average we probably have to bath her once every couple of weeks, sometimes not quite so soon.
We also wash her legs quite a lot because that's where the dirt gets so we leave her body longer.

It depends on what they have been rolling or diving in how often we bath them. But they do get their legs and paws washed more often, in the summer I hose them down, but this time of year I use a Paw Plunger with warm water, also good to get the snow balls of their feet.

Mine only get shampooed every couple of montys, but feet and sometimes tummies get rinsed in between, and I use a spray conditioner before brushing.
