How often? As little as possible. Dempsey gets about 3 baths a year with a very gentle dog shampoo. At the moment I'm using a bar soap which I find really good, but I can't remember the name! Blushing

I used to use John Paul Oatmeal Shampoo, but it's quite expensive.

I have used this 'Dermcare Natural Schampoo' http://www.dermcare.com.au/products/2-uncategorised/59-natural which was really good!
At the moment I am trying 'DGG NATURAL THERAPIES OATMEAL SHAMPOO'
http://doggonegorgeous.com.au/dgg-natural-therapies/
This one seems very good so far as well (used it 3 times so far).
Not sure if you can find these in the UK or not?

I am a bit of a clean freak and can't stand having a dirty dog in my bed so I do wash max about every 3-4 weeks which is more than what is usually recommended but it seems to work for her, she hasn't gotten any skin problems from it!

We used aqueous shampoo when Floyd had foliculitis but its great for when he's gone plodding through a swamp. Really gentle and properly pH balanced for their skin. Bought it on Amazon.

It's never done Molly any harm. We read in a dog book that anything you use on a baby you can use on a dog.. within reason..Big Grin
I spray Molly with essential lavender oil diluted in water after her shower. it's meant to help prevent tic's and fleas too.Big Grin

You need to be a little careful with a baby shampoo because a dog's PH balance is different to a child's. It probably won't do any harm, and is better than using an adult human's shampoo, though.

I have to say that although I said I'd never change from the John Paul shampoo, the bar soap is really good - very gentle & so easy to rinse away!

Maxi's previous owner used baby shampoo and I tried it the first few times however I wasn't a fan. Her fur felt a lot softer and cleaner when I swapped to a dog shampoo. The baby shampoo made her feel a little oily. But I guess it is different for everyone, might be worth a try!

I use Paw Sensitive Skin Shampoo for Puppy which is made by blackmore. Our Puppy trainer advised us to wash every month, but I wash him every 2-3 weeks. Ive never had a problem with sensitive skin with Rocky. and his coat is always soft and shiny!

I think Caryll uses one similar to me which are these:

They look out of stock at the moment though
