Welcome to the board.

How often to groom your dog will depend on the breed. And bathing depends on circumstances for the most part.

For instance, we have English setters--fairly long, silky hair. We comb them every day but we only bathe them if they've gotten muddy or rolled in something objectionable. Usually we just use an oatmeal based shampoo bought off the shelf at our local pet supply store. Toe- and ear-hairs are trimmed with a barber's scissors on a regular basis because their feet and ears get shaggy pretty fast.
