you should do a full bath every 6-8 weeks depending if its necessary. Bathing a dog too much will dry out their skin. If you need to, you can do a quick wipe down with baby wipes (unscented). For dogs with a double coat like poms, I would use a professional groomer.

Every 4-6 weeks.

Dogs with normal skin typically need to 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 :)
