I wash my guys when the Hound Odor gets a bit strong, usually every month or so. Ethel loves it, Eclair not so much.

Puppies under 12 weeks shouldn't be bathed. I use puppy shampoo for my puppy. It works great on him since puppy fur tend to be very soft. The fur to get much courser as they get older. Feels similar to horse fur.

Not sure if this is still true, but its best not to bath too often. Too much bathing can damage the waterproof coating they naturally have. (According to a book I own, though its a bit dated. The newer shampoos might of improved.) I noticed when water gets poured on my hounds it naturally rolls off like a duck.

I bath my hounds once a month.
