As long as your groomer is using a safe shampoo, as often as once per day, but normally every 2,4,6 or 8 weeks.

It is best to evaluate this question by breed as some breeds are prone to skin issues, "stinkiness" or other factors. For most breeds that I watch, 2 weeks or longer seems the norm.

Dogs with normal skin typically should be bathed once a month with a decent quality shampoo. They have some great dog shampoos on the market for all coat lengths and many different skin types. If your dog's skin has issues, you may want to try a sensitive skin shampoo and talk to your vet as you may need to bathe dogs that have allergies or certain types of skin issues more often. A good brushing between baths along with fish oil supplements and/or pumpkin can help your dog's coat stay shiny and healthy :)
