Monday Question

How often do you get a bath?  Do you get a bath because your parents think you smell?  What products do you use?  Where do you get bathed?  Do you go to the groomer?

Our answer:  We used to get baths once a week but Mommy has pushed them back to every two weeks.  Mommy thinks we smell when we haven't had a bath.  Daddy doesn't smell it.  That's the thing about parents.  We use Espree Oatmeal shampoo and another conditioner. We don't know why we have a conditioner but we do.  Mommy says it makes our hair smell better.  We go to the groomers every six weeks.  We get bathed in the tub.


  1. I bathe myself all the time but no bath with real water please. I did fall in the tub once, yes, it was full, oops!

  2. We are lucky that we don't have to get full baths very often. Everyone that comes here always comments about how we don't smell "doggy". Huh??? We get full groomings about 3-4 times a year at the spa, but we do get feetie washes quite often, sometimes multiple times a day:)

  3. I get a bath four times a year. Lab fur doesn't get smelly like other dogs. If it's warm the kiddie pool goes out in the driveway with the house, and in winter, it goes into the basement near the floor drain and Dad uses water from the basement tub sink to lather me up. I do NOT like it but I get extra treats. I get bathed in people shampoo - Shampure by Aveda. Mom likes how it makes my furs really soft and it doesn't irritate my skin. Abby Lab

  4. I only get a full bath when I see my groomer Miss Jacquie. In between, in might jump into the bath tub to wash off my muddy feet. But I like to play in the water, so it's no big deal.

  5. We get Poodle groomed once a month. Smells wouldn't dare land on us.

  6. Arty gets bathed once a week with his medical shampoo...Rosy goes to the groomer every 4-6 weeks and the groomer uses a shampoo that helps her smell good in between trips and Jakey only gets bathed once every month(at the groomers) unless he gets into something stinky ;-)

  7. Ma says I stinks. i says she is wrong. I gets a bath every 6 weeks or so, cause my furs grow fast and I needs grooming anyhu. I don't thinks I need any of it,butts if it makes the Moms scratch me more, then okays. I still say I don't stinks.

  8. nearly never just when the staff is near to death with stinky furs and paws LOL

  9. Mommy grooms me once a month in her "groom room." My face gets washed about 87 times a week wither in the kitchen sink or the groom room sink, and the rest of me once a week in the groom room sink. I never smell bad but sometimes I'm muddy. ~Xena

    I get a bath when Mom can't stand the "doggie" smell anymore, maybe four or five times a year. "Cause I'm big, Mom takes me to the downstairs bathtub that has a sprayer. Now I'm real good and jump in it myself cause it makes her happy. ~Lucy

  10. We don't really get smelly and we have short hair. In the winter we just get wipe downs if we need it with good smelling pet wipes. In the summer we get baths in the tub if we need them with Dr Harvey herbal shampoo

  11. I can´t have a bath very often, you know, I´m a Lab and rather delicate, besides mom is punctilius and there´s nobody who can give me a bath as she does:( So with all the weird preparation before it, I have my bath every 30 days, in mom´s bath tub, with a rubber rug not to slip and a special shampoo due to my skin alergies. I get dried and my hair is brushed neatly:)) I enjoy it very much, not so much mom´s back in fact, but that´s another story!
