We have a Great Dane of six months. Can we give him a bath in winter?


Dogs only need bathing when they are dirty or on the advice of your veterinarian. Make sure that you only bath your dog in fine weather or indoors to avoid chills. We generally do not advise bath for young puppies, particularly in winter. We suggest to give him sponge bath with plain lukewarm water when required. When he grows up to an adult, you can use shampoo for regular bath, generally twice a month. Never use human shampoo, use only dog shampoo specific to your dog’s skin condition. Ask your vet to recommend a good quality brand shampoo.
