How many times a week do you all bathe your babies
i bathe maxi once a week and have him groomed every few weeks
i also have this great spray on conditioner that smells fantastic and makes maxi smell good
i dont find that maxi has an odor i always wash his butt and brush his teeth
i brush him every day even though he hates it and i have to catch him as he runs away
I bath Abby once a week and she is groomed (as in brushed, eyes cleaned, bottom checked). I express her anal glands when I bath her, and I just keep an eye on the hair on her feet, in her ears and her nails - they are just done with her bath, as needed (probably once every 3 weeks). She's only 10 weeks old tomorrow, so the hair isn't a problem at this stage - it's still fairly short. I haven't decided if I will leave it long or not at this stage, I really like Toby's cut in his photo though....
My mum has some nice deodorant type spray especially for dogs that she uses for her dogs - she sprays a little on them and usually on their beds - I am thinking of getting some of that for Abby, but at present I just use a little coniditioner with water in a spray bottle when I groom her every day and that keeps her A-OK!
Her teeth are still coming through at the moment, so I'm having a little trouble with the whole brushing her teeth thing... there's not much to brush!!!
I'm going to get her a baby toothbrush this week though. I have been using just my finger and some doggy toothpaste (which I think makes her breath stink more!) - but I am considering just using water on the brush each day and once a week, when I bath her, using the toothpaste....??? Would that be ok???
