I go once every 2 weeks for the puppy package at Petsmart. Lacey is pretty good about it. I myself give her a bath once a week, even when she goes and gets groomed. I might only put her in the tub and let her get wet the weeks she goes and gets groomed but she thinks she is getting a bath. I usually only wash her paws, belly and face so her hair doesn't get dried out. At first she wasn't to happy with the bath but now she is better. I have given her 4 baths since I have had her and the last time she was really good about it. Afterwards I wrap her in a towel and take one leg out at a time and clip her nails and trim the hair in between her pads. This seems to keep her quiet and calm. After I let her run like a wild woman for about 10 minutes in the house and then I blow dry her. Took some work but she now lays and chews her bone while I brush/comb her while drying her. Just be patience and keep doing it and these little ones calm down and let you do what you have to do. I also brush/comb her everynight. At first I could do this for about 2 minutes and she wanted down but now she will lay on a pillow on my lap, chew her bone and let me groom her for as long as I like. I think she is doing pretty good for only being 19 weeks old!
