This post is dedicated to my youngest one Orbit who acts like she’s allergic to water.
If your best furry friend is an active Boston Terrier, loves to roll, run, play outside in the dirt, grass or beach, as well as cuddles with you on your sofa and bed then you should bath your pup every week.
If your dog is not active, doesn’t smell, isn’t sticky, and doesn’t sleep in your bed then there is no reason to bath them regularly. You can stretch it out and bath them between three to four weeks.
The middle ground would be if your Boston Terrier is a house dog who goes on daily neighborhood walks, then you could stretch it out so that you bathe them every two to three weeks.
Don’t Overdo It
Boston Terriers have short coats with no under coats. Avoid:
– Unnecessary baths
– Using the wrong shampoo
– Bathing your Boston with hot water
– Bathing your Boston for too long
If you bathe your dog more frequently than they need it, using the wrong shampoo, at a high temperature or bathe them too long they run the risk of their skin and fur drying out as well as depleting their natural oils.
Every dog is different so you will need to decide when the right time is to bathe your dog depending on the following factors.
