All dogs need shampooing regardless. Dogs
, like many hounds, have very oily skin
that can harbor bacteria resulting in
a very smelly dog. Such dogs will need a bath at least once a week. If you can't afford a groomer or don't have the time to take care of your dog's coat, you shouldn't have a dog.
