How often should I wash my puppy and what shampoo and conditioner should I use. My labradoodle is about 5 1/2 months old and she is quite the little terror. She gets into everything and is always managing to get REALLY dirty. She is an inside dog but we play outside a lot, go hiking etc. She seems like she always needs a bath but I am concerned about her skin drying out from bathing her too often. One specialist online said that there is no reason why your dog shouldn't bath as often as you do. Our vet however recommended bathing about once a month. We use 'mane and tail' that shampoo for horses, but my friend said it was awesome for dogs. It seems to be moisturizing and there is no flaking or irritation. What are your thoughts??

Welcome! I use Bbest Shot or Equyss and love both products! BUT, I just looked at Mane and Tale and wonder if it might be the miracle product I'm looking for? It has silicone in it, so I wonder if it would work even better? I might give it a try! For some reason the horse grooming items work really well for Bella! :lol:

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I will have to check that shampoo out. I really do love the mane and tail, it smells so good and her coat is SO soft afterward. I obviously don't want to if it's bad for her though. We have been giving her a bath about 3x a month since we got her at 3mo old. A rinse with conditioner alone doesn't do the trick. So basically, how much is too much? :?
