Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Does anyone else's dog have dandruff?  He has little flakes in his coat sometimes.  I don't know why his skin would be dried out - we don't bathe him more than is recommended, which I know is infrequent.  He got incredibly dirty at the dog park a few weeks ago so we had to wash him after that, but otherwise I think he has only been bathed one another time since we've had him (he is six months old).  What should we be doing about this?

i would try a different shampoo, it might be something your current one that's causing it. my chihuahua had a similar issue with Joey for a few years. i used earth bath shampoo that i bough on chewy.com or you can usually find them at petco not sure were else they are sold. oh, almost forgot i also added coconut oil to Leo and Joey's diet. and it seam to cleared it up and hes coat and skin has never looked better.

What kind of food are you feeding him? It could also be if you aren't feeding a grain free food that he is allergic and it is causing him to flake.

Our sibe has a tendency to have increased dandruff in the summer due to the humidity. The constant back and forth between the humid outdoors and dry, cool, air conditioned indoors causes his skin to dry out and get more dandruff than any other time of year. I knew a lady with shelties who had the same problem every summer. For us it's a summer weather thing, but if it's not the weather it could be so many possibilities and you'll have to rule options out via trial and error.
