how often should my dogs get bathed? i have two miniature poodles and i take them to be profesionally groomed every six weeks, but i feel like they get a little dusty/grimy in the interim…should i be bathing them? also…..in the cold weather, i always put sweaters on them, but my husband says i am being silly….who’s right? i don’t want them to be cold!
thanks,
