    FAQs

    How often should you give a dog a bath?

    Stinky mutts are hard to live with — but how often should you bathe your pup to keep the B.O. at bay? The American Kennel Club says that it depends on your dog's breed and lifestyle. Hairless breeds require weekly grooming to keep their skin healthy, while dogs with short, medium or long coats only need baths every four to six weeks.

    That being said, if your furry friend likes to roll around in the mud, swim in the lake, or finds their way into a trashcan, you might need to bathe them more frequently. The good news is that water baths might not be as necessary as you think. For short-haired dogs who are only a little dirty — say, after a trip to the dog park — you can either wipe the day off with a damp rag or use a waterless shampoo to keep them clean between baths.


    How do you give a dog a bath?

    It's super easy to give your dog a bath — all you need are a few quality supplies, a bathtub, and a pack of treats to reward your pup before and after their soapy soak. Don't forget to clean your dog's teeth and ears at least once a month.


    What you'll need:

    How to do it:
    Start by brushing your dog to remove any loose fur. This is a prime time to check your dog for fleas and ticks! After they've been thoroughly brushed, move them into the bathtub. If your pup is nervous, try persuading them with a treat. Get your dog wet with lukewarm water, then massage the dog shampoo into its fur until it's nice 'n' sudsy — take care to avoid getting soap in their eyes, ears, or mouth. Now it's time to rinse your buddy off and dry them with a towel. Give your good boy or girl a couple more treats and let them loose!


    How do you groom a dog?

    Bathing your dog is part of grooming, but there are a few extra tasks that also fall under this category. Trimming your doggo's nails is an important part of keeping them healthy, and about once a month is enough to stop your dog's nails from getting uncomfortably long.

    Regardless of your dog's coat length, whip out the brush and give your dog a good brushing from head to toe every couple of days. Not only will this keep your pup's fur looking fine, it'll also give you the opportunity to check them for fleas, ticks, bumps, or bald patches that could necessitate a trip to the vet.
