Bathing German Shepherds too regularly might result in dry and irritated skin. It is normally recommended to bathe your German Shepherd every three to six months, or as needed. Bathing excessively might also cause skin irritation and other health problems.
To avoid drying out your German Shepherd’s skin, use a dog-specific shampoo while bathing them. To prevent ear infections, they should also avoid receiving water in their ears. It’s also critical to thoroughly rinse your dog to remove any shampoo residue.
If your German Shepherd has a medical ailment or a skin problem, your veterinarian may advise you to bathe him more frequently with a medicated shampoo. As usual, contact with your veterinarian about the appropriate bathing frequency and materials for your specific dog.
