    @2BullyMama: besides the obvious (allergies), is there a reason you bathe less than those who do it every 2-3 weeks? @g8erjackie: why every 2 weeks in the winter? Chubbs is our first ebd so very curious about the whole bathing differences.
    @binxrexchubbs I bathe him less in the winter because it just gets so cold. I try to dry him with the hairdryer, but that isn't his favorite thing. I bathe Ruckus more often than others because while he is an inside dog he makes up for that by romping hard and rolling on the dirt when he is outside. He also had a few skin issues that I feel are kept at bay by using either a peroxide shampoo or the Duoxo shampoo. I also have a moisturizing regular doggie shampoo for unexpected baths, like if he accidentally steps in dog poo on a walk.

    I was watching a video about UGA the mascot ( EBD) for the University of Georgia interesting they wash his face with baby shampoo. I haven't thought of that for my girl, Pork Chop.

    3 wks to 4 wks or whenever Curly wants to become a black EB by rolling in the mud.

    And I notice it takes about 4+ hours for him to air dry. His fur is so thick compared to my other two dogs who only take an hour to dry.

    It's very strange to me how much difference there is with people/dogs. Some people bathe their dogs twice a year and some twice a month. I don't give my boys a bath often enough sometimes and they start to smell. I had surgery and was unable to give them a bath for a month, maybe 6 weeks. They smelled so bad it was making the house stink. My guys need a bath pretty often. I can put it off by spraying the smelly deodorant stuff on them and rubbing them down with a towel, but it don't make them clean, it just cuts down the doggy smell. Also, I always use baby shampoo on my boys faces, actually their whole head and ears. I like the lavender best.

    Farley has to be bathed twice a week and wiped down in between. If he goes to long he get very greasy, itchy and stinky. Vet has us using a medicated shampoo for this at the moment. I hope to not have to do as often one day, but it does keep his skin in the best condition this way.

    We are really lucky that Frank hasn't had many skin issues and doesn't roll in anything smelly, so we just bathe him 2-3 times a year. That is fine by me because he is such a pain in the booty when he has to take a bath.

    I'm a groomer and I have a hard time not bathing Brutus at least once a month. It's all a routine for me. Bath and nails, ears, tail pocket.

    Izzy is also an apartment dog but I take her to dog parks at least once every 10 days, besides our regular walks and day care. If I don't bathe her at least 1x a month she smells like a dog! I like when she smells like an "oatmeal ball" so we can cuddle and sleep together!!!!

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Walter gets a bath one of 2 ways
    1. starts to get the sour smell
    2. lays in the bathtub and wines until i fill the tub

    now that we have a new baby, Walter thinks he gets to have a bath everytime we give our other baby a bath
