good question!! I gave Jake a bath once a week when he was little. I'm thinking a bath every day could dry out his skin..but I wouldn't like that stinky smell either. I'd for sure use an oatmeal based shampoo. They have them with aloe in it. Stay away from Baby shampoo..it's very strong..people think because it doesn't burn eyes it's gone..but actually harsher than most shampoos! Hopefully soon..Emmitt won't be peeing in his crate and you can stop!
