How and When Should I Wash my Dog?

Dog Shampoo

Dogs are not typically great at self-grooming and cleaning.  Therefore, you should give your dog a thorough bath with dog shampoo every once in a while.  A dog’s skin and fur are very sensitive to oils and chemicals from store-bought shampoos and it is important that you always exercise caution when it comes to keeping your dog clean.

You should give your dog a bath typically once a month.  Washing your dog more frequently than this will begin to harm and disrupt the natural balance of oils in your dog’s skin and fur.  Brittle and damaged fur can result from too much washing.  Washing your dog less frequently than once a month is also an acceptable schedule for bathing.  Typically, washing your dog when they are noticeably dirty or smelly is a good rule of thumb.

For a great dog shampoo that will not harm your dog’s skin or fur we recommend using Paws & Pals Natural Dog-Shampoo And Conditioner
