German shepherds love water and bathing, if the puppy will be accustomed to it from an early age, really like them. But we must remember that without the need it is not necessary to bathe the dog with the use of special tools – shampoos, balms, conditioners.
The Germans contained in the apartment, bathe two, maximum four times a year. It is best to wash German shepherds after molting, before the show or the week before preventive treatment against fleas, ticks. If the captive content, frequency of bathing with shampoo should not exceed three times a year.
Frequent bathing, wash off the protective layer of fat with the coat. Captive dogs can be bathed only if it’s warm and good weather. Otherwise, the pet might catch cold and get sick.
