A Go Corgi member recently stated that it was wrong or un-necessary to give a Corgi a bath presumably even on an every three months (quarterly) basis because of the Corgis double coat. I would question this. There are many occasions outside a three monthly cycle when Corgis should be fully bathed and there is no harm done to their coats. Firstly, quality dog shampoos over the past dozen years or so are very safe and excel in replenishing and assisting towards a healthy skin and coat whether the dog's coat is single or double. Further to this the massaging of a dog when applying the shampoo to get right into the coat, is great for the skin and gives a good and pleasant feeling to the recipient. Corgis should be groomed with a brush and comb at least every other day for about five minutes. And during the twice yearly major shed, they could very well receive a bath which will greatly assist in ridding a Corgi of a great dollop of loose hairs during the bath and subsequent grooming process. Of course if a Corgi gets real dirty or stinky from some outside experiences, a bath will be in order at any time. Following a bath in less than warm and sunny conditions, I use a blow dryer on my Pem, Taylor after having initially towelled his dripping coat. Some Corgi owners bath their Corgis monthly which is fine. But Taylor is largely indoors, and when outdoors usually avoids anything that is going to produce a dirty or smelly coat. As well he is groomed almost dally and not allowed inside the house unless his feet (and tummy) are cleaned with a towel. So Taylor usually gets no more than four baths a year. If he was in conformation shows however and when something special crops up like a photo shoot or tv advert, he would be bathed more often as a bath with good quality dog shampoo is great for the coat to shine/gleam, feel softish and clean to touch and appear healthy and full. There is nothing much worse than a dog that smells and some breeds of dogs have a natural strong smell which fortunately most Corgis don't share. However, a Corgi will smell if not bathed regularly or when necessary - and their owners may not be the best judges of when a pong sets in because they may have become "immune" to a slowly increasing day by day smell or stench. I have had Corgis stay over at my home in definite need of a bath and if they are staying long enough i give them the bath that they should have had before being delivered to my doorstep.
