i try and do it once a week but i dont know if thats the recommended time its just how often i do it. sometimes more. especially of late because she has a shaggy baggy winter coat already and whenever we ride its still kinda warm during the days so she sweats heaps. most days i hose her down after a ride so i hose in there as well. then once a week when she has her proper bath i do it with the soapy water. ive found that since i do hose down there three or four times a week there is very little to clean up with the soapy water so the process is quicker for her especially seeing as she isnt a fan of the whole cleaning there process :)
just a side note, dont forget about her other girl area. i think that gets missed a lot and it gets pretty yukky there if you dont keep it clean. same method but i use really really mild warm soapy water with a sponge and a rubber glove ;)
