Smells Like Wet Dog
Getting your dog clean can be a little bit like getting your teenager to take a shower – they hate it and fight you every step of the way. Okay, not all teenagers and dogs are so resistant to being clean, but it sure can be a hassle for some! Thankfully, your dog doesn’t need to bathe nearly as often as your teen does.
Dog groomers and vets agree that most dogs should be bathed monthly. Not only does it clean their skin and fur, but it is also critical in helping spread important oils that keep their coat soft and healthy. However, don’t be tempted to do it more frequently unless they are mud rollers. Too much bathing can cause dry skin, leading to irritation.
