My old golden I bathed once a month. She would smell pretty bad if I didn't do it that often. Now my new labx, I have bathed just once in the 5+ months I have had him. And I plan to do it only when he needs it.

In the fall and winter Milly gets bathed every 2-2.5 weeks. In the summer she gets weekly baths. I brush her everyday, but she's less into the daily brushing. She LOVES her brushing after baths, though.

Maggie gets a full bath once a month, but, gets her tootsies bathed of mud every night...just dipping them in the tub with 2 inches of water...she loves baths, though and would shower with us every day if we let her.

Ruby was due a bath but yesterday she decided she was ready for her bath there and then
we were minding our grandson who Ruby adores, he was having a bath and Ruby was watching they were sharing his bath toys William would give one to Ruby and Ruby would reluctantly give it him back and wait patiently to be offered another
well we got Will out of the bath and Ruby jumped in we were so shocked as she is not a lover of bathtime but while she was in there she got the full works she smells all baby shampoo as thats all Baz had to hand in the spur of the moment lol

I give the big dogs a bath when they are dirty or swim in the ocean. Tally gets a "spa" day before shows. Copley gets a bath every week with a trim and a blow dry. Everyone is brushed daily, with nails trimmed every other week.

I bathe Jamie probably once or twice a year, he's had skin problems so was advised not to bathe him wherever possible. Like you say it strips their coats of natural oils that condition the skin. His last bath was June 2009, but it is helpful that he likes to go into the lake for a wade around.

I bathe Griff only when he feels grimy. (He's recently taken to rolling outside.) I was just about to do it when we got a lot of rain. Between the rain and the good towel downs, he no longer needs the bath.

They get baths every 2 weeks, and in the summer it will probably be weekly. They get brushed every day.

To those of you who wash once in 3-4 weeks. If they come in dirty instead of actually washing them what do? Just rinse them off?
