Lots of hair, I recommend if doing it yourself to use a self dog wash otherwise your bathroom will be full of hair everywhere.

They go to groomer every 6-8 weeks

I wash her at a self-serve dog wash. It is quite easy and much cheaper than taking to a groomer's.

A do-it-yourself dog wash facility or in an enclosed shower with a handheld sprayer.

Thick fur so do it in sections lather soap and rinse thoroughly each area, do face and head last. Have alot of towels ready for drying

Bathe outside or have a professional do it.

Pay someone or take it to a self dog wash place.

Ours hates water. Luckily he's not a smelly dog. And his skin tends to be on the dry side. So he only gets a bath about once a year.
