Giving your dog a bath is an important part of his grooming routine. It helps rid your pet of dead hair and dirt to avoid infections and diseases. The frequency of your dog’s bath time depends on his breed, lifestyle, and activity level.
For those with Bernedoodles, you should bathe your berne once in 3 months. It is not recommended to give him a bath frequently because it can remove his coat’s natural oils. They need these oils to keep their skin healthy and moisturized. When their skin gets dry, they would feel uncomfortable because it would cause itching and pain. Bathing also depends on the lifestyle and activity level of your dog. If he likes to go outside and play in the dirt, then you should bathe him more often. But if your berne just usually stays indoor, then you can follow the recommended bathing schedule for your doggo. In place of bathing, you can brush his coat frequently instead to keep it healthy and free of mats. This will also help remove the dirt off his body so there’s no need to bathe him often.
When you give your Bernedoodle a bath, make sure you use dog shampoo or conditioner especially formulated for sensitive skin. Don’t ever use human shampoo or conditioner on your berne as they contain harsh chemicals which can irritate his skin. You can bathe your pet by yourself or take him to the groomers. But as furparents, it is recommended that you know how to give your Bernedoodle a bath. It can save you big bucks and provide a great bonding activity between you and your pet. Your pet loves spending time with you even if that time is bath time. Get him used to his grooming routine so that he will learn to relax and even look forward to these moments. Remember to keep him calm and relaxed so you can make bath time an enjoyable experience for the both of you.
