How Often to Bathe Your Dog


How often you need to bathe your dog depends on a number of factors, including their breed, coat type, and lifestyle.

Oily Coats

 Some breeds, such as Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers, have oily coats that may need to be bathed more often, every few weeks.


Other breeds, such as Poodles and Yorkshire Terriers, have dry coats that only need to be bathed every 6-8 weeks.


Active dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors may need to be bathed more often, every few weeks or even weekly.


Dogs with allergies may need to be bathed more often to remove allergens from their skin.


Overbathing can dry out your dog's skin and coat, so it's important to bathe them only as often as needed.


If you have any questions or concerns about how often to bathe your dog, talk to your veterinarian.
