Like mentioned, I'd be worried that a bath every night if she became noticeably calmer is because of stress. You say she doesn't seem bothered by the baths but then you also say it helps her calm and sleep better. Meaning, there is at least some distinct change of behavior which IME isn't typical for having a bath. Many dogs get the zoomies and are MORE energetic after a bath.Yes, she has a thicker coat. She doesn't seem bothered by her baths. I'm not planning on bathing her every night, but just curious if 1 or 2 weeks in between were safe, I just don't want her skin to get sensitive or strip her of her natural oils.
Mine get twice a year whether they like it or not because every citizen of Kentucky is required by law to take a bath at least once a year and I do so want my dogs to be on the leading edge of cleanlinessMy terrier mix gets a bath once a year whether she needs it or not.
Bathing that often is fine, as long as you follow some basic guidelines.Yes, she has a thicker coat. She doesn't seem bothered by her baths.

Twice a week is too much for me.How often should a pup be bathed? I just got a small breed puppy and she tends to calm down and sleep better at night when we give her a bath! I don't want to dry her skin or hair tho. Thoughts?
Once a week would be fine. It also depends on your surroundings. If you're in a cold-temperature area, less baths are needed. But yeah, as soon as you feel your dog being too dirty, a bath should be scheduled soon.Twice a week is too much for me.
At least once a week just to be clean.
