Let's be real, dogs have a knack for getting into smelly situations. So, how often should you break out the shampoo? Well, there's no one-size-fits-all answer, but a good rule of paw is to bathe your pooch as needed, which differs depending on breed and coat length. If they're starting to get a bit stinky or their coat is looking dull, it's time for a bath. But don't worry, you don't have to wait until they're leaving a trail of odor behind them. Just keep an eye (and nose) out for any signs that your pup is in need of a scrub-down. And remember, a little waterless shampoo and a good brushing can go a long way in between baths!
