So there isn’t really much of a ‘health’ benefit;
None. Bathing washes the natural protective oils out of the coat. The result of that it, 1/ Without the oil the coat licks up dirt all the quicker. And 2/ The body goes into overdrive trying to replace the oil, making the coat excessively oily and increasing the "doggy" smell. If mine get muddy after a day working in this I give them a retrieve across the brook to wash the mud out of their coat. (Water without shampoo will flush the mud out without removing the natural oils.)
