When can you wash a puppy for the first time?
This means it’s a good thing for all puppies to be used to happy bath times from an early age. Bathe your puppy once a week for the first three or four weeks, then once a month until they are six months old, then at least twice a year after. Then, bath-time should be a peaceful non event for your dog.
