Before you just throw your dog in the bath and start lathering up you should be adequately prepared. Get your shampoo (made for your dog not human shampoo), some brushes or combs, a washcloth, some cottonballs, a towel or two, and any other equipment or products you might need. You might want to use a detachable spray hose for your bath and a rubber mat makes a good idea to prevent slipping and sliding. Large breed dogs will most likely have to use the bathtub with the rubber mat on the bottom, but smaller breeds can use a plastic basin or rubber storage bin.
This is how often you should groom your dog if you're asking the question, ”What is the least that I should do for my dog as far as grooming?” However, you may be asking the question, ”Is it possible to bathe my dog too much?” As long as you are using shampoos that are gentle and no harsh chemicals, there is no such thing as bathing or grooming your dog too often. You may bathe your dog as often as you like. Make sure, though, that you use the proper grooming products. For instance, it is really not a good idea to use human shampoo for your dog. Sure it may work to clean his hair, but the levels of pH in human shampoo is stronger than the pH level of doggie shampoo. Therefore, if you continuously use human shampoo on your dog, you can actually give him dry itchy skin.
Dog Grooming – The Bath. An important part of dog grooming is the bath. Although it is okay to brush your dog daily, you should not bath your dog too often. Overbathing will reduce the vital oils that help keep your dog's coat healthy and lead to irritation and itching of the skin. Four times a year is a good rule of thumb, but this will vary depending on the breed of your dog and the types of activities you and your pet regularly do. You should consult your vet or a professional groomer if you are unclear of the proper frequency for your dog.
