Overwashing has become a bit of an issue in recent times. And mostly because we dog owners want the best for them. After all, a weekly wash is good for them, right? Well not necessarily.
For most dogs, a wash every 4-6 weeks or less is enough. If your dog loves nothing more than rolling in stinky stuff or plunging into mud puddles, you may need to wash them more often. Rule of paw; it’s best to wash less and wipe instead.
If you’ve gotten into the habit of regularly shampooing your dog, they may get a bit whiffy between baths. That’s likely due to your dog being overwashed, so the skin has likely been stripped of the natural oils that protect and nourish their skin and coat. Less oils means drier and even flaky skin which can lead to irritation and potentially infections. This can result in a sharper doggy smell.
Luckily the oil production can be reset and will naturally replenish over time. You can help the process along with the Four Step Skin Reset.
Be patient! It can take up to 12 weeks of less washing to achieve positive results.
