Question by : How often should I bathe my australian shepherd?
She is 8 weeks now and im not completely sure how often or if i should bathe her yet. When she gets older how often should i bathe her? And does anyone know of a specific type of shampoo that is for australian shepherds?
Answer by AyHy
8 weeks seems too early to bathe her. I’d wait another couple months, unless she gets completely filthy.
If you bathe an Australian Shepherd once a week, that’s fine – she’ll stay pretty clean and soft to the touch.
You really don’t need a breed-specific shampoo. A generic pet shampoo will do fine; Aussies aren’t any more likely to have sensitive skin or allergies than the average dog.
