We bathe our dogs every two weeks...by two weeks, they've gone from white to gray :)  

Once a week may be a bit often...I guess it depends on which shampoo you're using & if the puppy's skin is not drying out.  

You have a very cute puppy :)

Thanks Diane. I use Earthbath shampoo once a week and every night use the grooming wipes of earth bath to clean him 

I was told by my vet to use an oatmeal based shampoo and bathe Whidbey every two weeks.  If she shows signs of dirt between times, it's fine to bathe her as long as you use that type of shampoo, but not to make a habit of it.

I use virbac etiderm (link below) on Finley and it is awesome! It lathers really well and smells sooooooo good! He is 12 weeks old and gets a bath every two or three days but etiderm is a sensitive skin shampoo so my vet says its fine. As long as you are using a mild shampoo and not noticing that he is itching or has dry skin you should be fine with once a week. ;0)

I think mine is not oatmeal but with aloe and its soap free, tearless puppy formula. This week onward i will try to wait till 2 weeks to wash him and how dirty he gets :?)

Every week might not be needed and unless hes a mini/medium, its really tiring!! It takes me 3 hours to do Biba's bath routine (pre-bath brushing, ear cleaning, actual bath, drying and post-bath brushing) so I don't really want to do that any more than necessary.

So in the 4 months that we have had her, she has had 3 full baths, 3 under-carriage baths (legs, belly, sanitary areas), a paw shampoo almost every morning and paw rinse with just water every evening. I use an oatmeal shampoo or a neem shampoo, Herbal Essences for conditioner and Malacetic for the ears.
