How Often to Bathe a Labrador Retriever

There appears to be a lot of widening opinions and misinformation on-line in regards to how often you should bathe your labrador retriever. In order to understand this you have to learn a little more about the coat itself.

The labrador retriever has a short, thick coat which isn’t particularly hard to maintain. What is important about the labrador retriever’s coat is that it contains an oil which helps protect them against dirt and keeps their skin dry when they are swimming of when they get wet. This oil is very important to keeping your labs skin clean and healthy.

If you wash your labrador retriever too often you will wash this oil out of their coat and this will likely lead to a number health problems. We really only bathe our dogs twice a year at most or if they get into something too stinky for us to stand. You don’t really need to bathe a labrador retriever beyond this.

When you do decide to bathe your labrador retriever please do not use a regular shampoo made for humans. Again, you may do more damage to the oil in the coat. Instead talk to your vet or pet store and find a mild and gentle shampoo designed for  labrador retrievers.

Remember your Labrador retrievers coat is a sign over their overall health. If you notice that the coat is too dry or dull then there could be something else happening. This could be from over bathing or food allergies. Do not let it go unchecked.
