    atleast once in a week you should bath your dog. Otherwise after 1 or 2 days is the best routine.

    You can bathe your dog as often as you want. However that doesn't mean they need it that often.

    It actually varies breed by breed but there are also things to take into account such as where you live, and whether the dog is having issues with fleas or tics. If fleas or flies are an issue that your dog is having, you'll want to get a kind of bath that will help the dog combat these pests and follow the directions that are listed on the product that you end up going with. If you don't know what kind of bath to use, ask a vet.

    Essentially it comes down to the same thing that we use to decide when it's time for a human to bathe. When we stink, get dirty, etc. So I can't really give an exact time frame as to when is best to give a bath.

    There's actually a pretty good hub written about grooming tips for german shepards at http://hubpages.com/hub/German-Shepherd … ps--Tricks

    Also you can find very generic information about many dog breeds at animal planets website. Here is the link for german shepards even though the video does not answer your question. http://animal.discovery.com/videos/dogs … pherd.html
