I try and do it once a week but I don't know if that's 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. I've 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, don't forget about her other girl area. I think that gets missed a lot and it gets pretty yukky there if you don't keep it clean. Same method but I use really really mild warm soapy water with a sponge and a rubber glove ;)
