I bathe him about every 3-4 weeks. Just depends on how dirty he is. Is Linotone a spray or a shampoo? I am going to stop by the pet supply to see if they have any. I talked to the breeder and she told me to bathe him in baby shampoo instead of puppy shampoo, so I will change this also. He doesn't scratch at it so it doesn't bother him I guess. But the flakes are all in his hair, so I think his whole body is just flaking.
