    I use pet head. I love the sprays. Cookie dough mmmmmm what a smell

    We was them 3 times but it depends on how dirty they get on some of my winter walks. I wash there face out of the bath and dry first making sure every fold and wrinkle are bone dry

    I try to bathe Ruckus one per week and don't like to let him go longer than two weeks without a bath. He loves to run and play and he gets dirty doing it outside on walks or at the park. He also sleeps in the bed with us and if I don't keep up with his bath I notice the quilt looks dirty faster.... Ruckus tolerates a bath. We bought a shower head with a detachable handle portion that is long enough to reach the ground, so it's an efficient process.

    Using vinegar doesn't make them smell like vinegar? Do you rinse again after the vinegar rinse?

    Believe it or not, once they dry the vinegar smell is gone.

    Same with washing floors with vinegar which does a marvelous job!

    What do you use to do the vinegar mixture? Do you just mix a bowl....? What your process?

    After the bath is done and completely rinsed, I put a couple of inches of water in the tub and a couple of cups of white vinegar and scoop the water up with a cup and pour it all over. In the process they also get a vinegar paw soak this way

    I think I will try this vinegar thing. Wifey said he has to take his shower weekly. I know people say, it can strip the oil off his skin. I try remedy that by the daily coconut oil intake in his kibbles.

    I love vinegar....., on my fries. Does this work
