Hi jen...

So JMO... Do not brush a Doberman's skin/coat. That may only exacerbate shedding and/or skin issues. Do not over bathe. Same thing. Although, I can't in good conscious recommend it, McCoy has never (in almost 5 years) been bathed. At least not with shampoo.

I am sure that there are those who will disagree. Still... His skin has always been good and his coat is lustrous. His natural oils take care of it.

He does get hosed off occasionally. And the winter rains here in Portland help keep him clean.

My boys shed when they shed. Oh well.

That's why I have vacuums LOL.
