What's the best way to keep my westie groomed without drying out her skin too much?
I've done research on why my puppy is scratching all the time, and many places said it's because of washing her too much. I was giving her a bath every week, but now I try and wait two weeks. The problem is that she starts to smell so bad that I can't go longer than two weeks without giving her a bath. Her Skin is still itchy but not nearly as bad.
How about looking into wipes? You can most likely use them daily, and you'll be able to keep the dog smelling fresh between baths. You can also look into waterless shampoos and freshening spritzers. There are a lot of products to choose from, it's all going to come down to what will work best with your pooch's skin:

How much does it cost for full service grooming of a standard poodle?
You should never give a flea bath when you're using topical flea prevention already. You can give your pet an overdose of the poison that is used to kill the fleas and they can get sick. No flea shampoo should ever be used after applying topical flea prevention. If you want to use K9 Advantix, you should wait about 10 days before giving a non-flea bath so that the medication has had time to absorb into the skin and become effective. If you want to bathe your dog and use flea shampoo, it would be wise to bathe the dog first and THEN apply the medication.
Yes you should try to groom your maltepoo. A soft bristle brush as well as a comb or two would be beneficial. A pin brush should also be used to detangle and do regular daily grooming. A grooming or conditioning mist/spray should also be used to prevent breakage when brushing.
They don't necessarily NEED it, but if their paw pads are dry and cracked, it's recommended. I use the Espree natural paw balm, and it works like a charm. If you go to a Petco Grooming Salon and Spa, more likely than not, they will have it in there.

What kind of brush do I need for a Boston Terrier, or any short haired dog?
I have a large headed tight bristle brush I use now, but I'm not sure it gets him the kind of brushing he needs or is best for the shedding he does; what do I need? The one I use now is by Oster.
