Was wondering now that it is summer and already super hot here, can I bathe the dogs once a week? cause they do start to smell after walking outside, or will it make their coats dry if I wash once a week?

It's fine to wash once a week as long as you are using a good quality shampoo and conditioner. I can't stress enough on quality. Most of your grocery store/pet store brands will dry out the coat and can cause more harm than good.

I've never personally used it so I can't say one way or the other. I'm a fan of Plush Puppy Australia, but Isle of dog, and Chris Christensen Systems. I'd also recommend Coat Handler products, especially for your yorkie.

Thanks for the recommendationsway to go
Happy for isle of dogs what type of shampoo and conditioner is best?
is there a type that I can use on my Yorkie and Bichon/poodle? or is it best to buy two separate types for both of them? cause it is kind of expensive and I would love to be able to use the same shampoo and conditioner on them just to see if I like it. Happy have you ever used Rosie B good Smoother Than Velvet Vanilla Shea Butter Conditioner? I got it at Petco and it is made by Isle of Dogs.
