For years, pet parents suffered the misconception that bathing too often is bad for their dogs coat. This myth is the consequence of poor grooming practices: using harmful household soaps, ultra cold garden hose water, or human shampoos with inappropriate pH balance. With quality products made specifically for dogs, a dog can, and should, be bathed as often as needed, even on a daily basis.
I feel that proper dog grooming comes down to a simple premise: keeping you dog clean and well groomed helps promote good health. Veterinarians and dog professionals agree that a dogs coat is a barometer of its well being. If the coat looks rough or the skin overly flaky, it is a strong sign of poor canine health. And if kept unchecked, you dogs quality of life will suffer. Our dogs play with and kiss our kids, they sleep in our beds, they travel in our cars, and sometimes they eat off our tables. So clearly a dog's cleanliness can affect the entire household.
