Civilized Choice Tip: Most dogs are overgroomed. Marketing from pet groomers would have you believe that your dog should be groomed at least once a month. However, dogs are not people and their normal skin balance of oils and healthy microbes is upset by frequent bathing. Frequent bathing predisposes dogs to body odor, skin infections, ear infections, and even bladder infections. Most dog breeds only need brushing to remove shedding hair and stimulate oils. Breeds that require more grooming can be groomed or clipped without a bath (dry grooming) at the grooming salon. Unless a veterinarian recommends that your dog be bathed for medical reasons, most dogs will do best with a bath 2-6 times a year (depending on their activity and coat quality). After a day running on the beach or in mud, just rinse them off without shampoo. Dogs can develop allergies to shampoos, even those described as hypoallergenic. Of course, if your dog rolls in something gross, fill up the tub!
