How Often Should I Wash My Poodles/ Bichon Frises?

They get dirty and full of brown boogers under their eyes like 3 days later i wash them, and I was them every 10 days.
Does anyone know if they need to get a bath earlier than 10 days? Because they get really dirty and it's kind of gross how their faces look.
Help.

No dog should be washed more then once a month. Every ten days is way too much. It strips the natural oils from their skin and fur, can actually damage the hair and cause it to split and break and become dull, and can actually cause them to get dirtier faster. If I were you, I would only wash them once a month. If their face gets dirty, they sell pet wipes that are non toxic and animal safe. Just use these to wipe the faces off and get the eye crustys off

    i have a shihtzu and she eyes get exactly the same, so do her feet, belly well everyhting gets filthy coz shes sowhite and fluffy, i keep the hair round her eyes short and i have bought eye wipes from the pet shop which work o.k. i bath her once a week but instantly she runs outside and gets mucky again lol, so i dont think you can prevent it from happening between baths. also i keep the hair on her feet shorter as her feet get fithy but not if the hairs short, once she comes in from the rain or mud i wipe her feet with babywipes or blot them with a old towel. also i brush her hair every evening, this helps clean their fur to x x

    Woah there!

    Every ten days?

    My mom and I wash my bichon when she really smells… about every three weeks.

    They have special pet wipes for face gunk.

    PLEASE don't wash your dog once a week… it's NOT good. The EARLIEST would be every two weeks, but I don't reccomend it.

    from what i know, twice a month is a regular schedule for dogs to bathe but of course, if they get really filthy, then maybe you can really go beyond that.
