Brushing Vs. Bathing

Thursday, July 16, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

Dogs are like kids, most of them don’t like to take baths but even short haired dogs need proper grooming and a bath occasionally.  Bathing too often can take away the natural oils that keep a dogs skin smooth and healthy.  How much washing is too much depends on the humidity and the type of shampoo used. A general rule of thumb is that a good brushing is usually enough to keep your dog freshened up.  In addition to removing dirt, a regular brushing will remove hair and make your dog more comfortable.  Bathing is appropriate when a dog has body odor especially if he’s rolled in something that he shouldn’t have.  A good rule to remember is that a dirty dog needs a brush and a smelly dog needs a bath. After his bath, give him some dog treats to keep him happy!
