Yesterday I engaged in a heated argument with my friend over how many times I should bathe my short-haired Beagle in a month. My friend was surprised to learn that I bathe my 3-year-old dog, Smokey, three to four times a month. He insisted that I was overdoing it. His suggestion was that I should only bathe him once or twice a month. I would like to hear from you. How many times should a Beagle be bathed in a month. Is there a problem in doing it several times?
