Never, unless they get into something disgusting
Once or twice per year, whether it needs it or not
About once per month
About once per week
More than once per week

More than twice per year and less than once per month. Usually when he comes home from the trainer, while shedding, and after rolling on something dead. Regarding cleaning interior of the truck. That is a neat concept, but it is one of the things that seems to keep getting put off.

Something I learned in the barn growing up. "Never walk behind a cow that is coughing."
I don't bathe a dog often but do rinse mud and guck off after training in rain. We have heavy clay here and it cakes on the dog. I think that it might be bad for their skin staying on. My old dog however b/c he is on the furniture he gets bathed. Do I think it will improve their coat??? I do know that you must be sure you rinse the dog off well or they will get skin irritation, dry skin and flaky skin. That is just what I have observed from doing him. So I am careful about how often I do it. JMHO

Rowdy has allegeries so he gets a bath twice a week in the summer with an allegery designed shampoo. In the summer because of the various type of weeds he runs through. In the winter only once a week because the cover is usually short and limits his exposure.

I dont like my dog stinking.. He spends a ton of time outside and is especially rank after a day out at our place running through all the nasty water and rolling around in cow crap...I give him a bath about every two weeks and sometimes once a week if he gets to stanking.
