Me again. So my baby, Peanut, now a 14 month old female spayed Dachshund is growing into herself. I figure she's as big as she'll get, which is pretty darned small. (She's a miniature.) I've read that bathing your dog regularly (more than, say, once every couple months) is not recommended. We don't, and she really doesn't need it. She rarely smells 'dog-ish'.
- Knowing that, is it recommended to clean out her ears?
A Dachshund is a 'floppy-eared' type.
- If it is so recommended, how often should we do it?
I am currently cleaning them weekly, but they never seem to need it.
