    So I have three boys, my eldest is getting on a bit now (he’s over 2 years old). As expected he’s slowing down a bit, including with his grooming. I’m helping him as much as I can, he’s still happy and full of life but I’ve been giving him baths once a week to keep him clean. He doesn’t panic when I do but they’re definitely not his favourite thing. He’s always been an avid groomer so I thought it would be good to give him regular baths to keep him happy. Does anyone else do this? Maybe once a week is too often, jut trying to help.

    I've never bathed my 2 boys, but once a week may be a little too often. Maybe you can just give him the odd wipe down with a flannel and warm water.
    Unless he's visibly dirty or smells alot he should be fine.

    He is pretty smelly to be fair. I have two younger boys who like to pee on everything including him. I will try a flannel and see if it makes a difference, thankyou
