In general, short haired dogs like Boston Terriers can be groomed every two weeks, but longer haired dogs like Schnauzers need to be groomed at least weekly for this reason. Of course there is a big difference between dogs that spend their time outdoors and dogs that spend their time indoors. Most dogs who are outdoor dogs will need to be bathed every five days or so. Inside dogs generally require less bathing. Also you will find that you need to groom your dog with greater frequency as he ages. Older dogs tend to shed hair faster and smell bad more often. If you are new to dog ownership and therefore dog grooming as well, don't worry.
In addition to regular brushing, you should also make sure you keep your dog's nails trimmed–an often overlooked aspect of dog grooming. You will probably want to do this monthly although it will depend on your dog's habits and activities. Make sure you have proper trimmers made for dogs and do not cut them too short. You'll want to stop trimming just before you reach the quick and don't forget to get your dog's dewclaw. Following these routine dog grooming instructions will help maintain your dogs coat and nails but should also be supplemented with a bath.
The care provided to a dog through grooming provides the basic foundation training that your dog needs to become comfortable with being touched. If your pooch is uncomfortable having her paws or ears handled, a regular routine will teach her that she doesn't have to be afraid of dog grooming supplies. Long-haired breeds can quickly develop painful mats and tangles in their fur if it isn't brushed regularly, and this can lead to a dog that shies away from being touched because the dog has learned that petting can hurt.
