Are there any lab owners out there? I have some questions about the upkeep of their coat and skin. We recently got a 2 yr old ch. lab, and she seems to have some dandruff. I gave her a bath and about a week later she didn't have her pleasant fresh smell. Is this due to her oily coat? How often can you bathe labs and is the dry skin normal or should I get some shampoo treatment? This is my first lab and was looking for some advice on their upkeep. Dad come across her and we are going to make a detection dog out of her. I tell you one thing, she is about the sweetest lil dog I've ever met and my kids just love her.
