Maybe every other week but unless he gets dirty, I would only use water 1/2 the time, also when any shampoo is used, RINSE WELL, VERY WELL!
Congratulations!

It can vary how often your puppy will need a bath, but I would try not to give him a bath more than every month or 2 unless he gets dirty. Their skin can get dry if they are bathed too often. I wouldn't use the flea and tick shampoo for every bath, especially if you are going to use any type of preventative.

I'm a groomer and I bathe and brush all my dogs about every week to week and a half. Always use a shampoo designed for dogs and make sure if your pup has longer hair that you brush any matts out before the bath and brush your pup anytime they get wet.
