I will answer the most questions you have for dog bathing like brushing the coats and rinse the ears to do dog grooming like a professional groomer.
First of all:
Should I Bathe Dog?
However, there is no single answer to this question as it is dependent on variables such as the skin condition, length of hair, lifestyle, and the dog breed. Let us check them one by one:
If your pup has any skin problem, you should see your vet for proper treatment. You may also invest in a medicated dog shampoo and conditioner to eliminate unwanted parasites on the coat. Also, they keep the skin from drying.
Amount of hair
However, it’s best to know what category your short or long coated pup fits into before you set a grooming routine. Like Chinese Crested, Collie, and Maltese, you have to bathe them weekly basis. Meanwhile, Retrievers, Huskies, and Akitas don’t need more than 1 per month or 2 months.
Lifestyle and Breed
However, for a dog that lives a moderately active lifestyle, anything more than weekly is too much.
Can I bathe the dog with flea shampoo?
But bear in mind that they only eliminate fleas present at the time of bathe and not after. Therefore, a constant anti-flea skincare regimen is recommended for maximum results. To obliterate otherwise, it will be itchy and do irritation overtime. Besides, taking the water out of puppy ears is preferred to be without using an electric dryer, it will be painful for the animals generally.
Grooming experts claim that a healthy dog hardly ever needs washing unless it is necessary. The reason being—the coat of hair (or fur) on a dog contains natural oil or sebum. That acts as a protective barrier on the skin and can be stripped off by overzealous washing.
How many times should you bathe your dog?
It depends on the coat hair length of your dog; the long hair of the dog needs more grooming and bathes once per month, at least.
And it would help if you took care of drying your puppy every time to avoid fungus, especially in winter, it will be better to expose it to the sun within the first 24 hours from grooming time.
