Bathing your Shiba

As a rule of thumb, we say less is better. Shibas tend not to have an odor to them, even when wet. Their coats tend to repel dirt, and they are meticulous at grooming themselves.

You will find that when your dog blows their undercoat, bathing your dog will speed the process of relieving them of their hair and help keep your house cleaner.
