Put some vegetal oil in his food, f.ex. olive oil and the dry skin
dissapears.
Do not bath as much 1 x every 2 months is enough under normal
circunstances.

We used a curcumin-based natural shampoo that seems to have done the
job.  It is called Ultimate Shampoo.  More information is at

Cindy:

It has been my experience that much like humans a dogs skin or coat is a
direct reflection of his diet.
My dog Bosco also suffered from dandruff and excessive shedding.  A couple
of months ago I switched his food to one with a higher than average protein
and fat content that included flaxseed oil and vitamin E.  Then I
supplemented the food with Gold Caps, an all natural vegetable oil fatty
acid supplement.  Not only did the dandruff disappear, but the his shedding
is now appropriate for the season and he has lost the "dog smell".

My dog, Lucy, swims quite often with us in the pool. Besides the olive
oil,
anyone have other ideas on keeping the skin from drying.  

Also for the originator of this thread, I just wanted to say that you
might
also check your dog for worms (if the dandruff is bad), that's a good
sign
the dog's protein is being depleted by worms (my vet said this when we
got
Lucy who at the time had three types of worms).  Now she's doing great,
can't keep her out of the swimming pool!
