Only every 2-3 months. If he doesn’t need one you don’t have to give him one though.

    Australian Shepherds should only be bathed when absolutely necessary. It is only when your dog has become smelly, has dirt on its coat and such other reasons that would necessitate a bath. Australian Shepherds are dogs that need minimal grooming which can be done with occasional brushing. So giving your dog a bath is not always needed.

    Brushing is a very effective way of cleaning a dogs coat; It gets rid of dirt and dust, undercoat and stimulates the natural oil that keep the coat shiny and water repellent. Bathe the dog about every 3 or 4 months unless he gets really dirty or rolls in something objectionable.
    30 yrs grooming.

    Every few months.

  4. walking lady says:

    Like every other breed, no more than absolutely necessary and definitely not more than once every 6 weeks. Too many people over-bath which strips the oils out of a dog's coat and dries out the skin.
