The most important determining factor is your dogs skin and the type of shampoo you use.

My dog is prone to flaky skin, so before a bath I put flax, coconut or olive oil on his food for about a week, then I use a moisturizing shampoo, then I do a light coat of coconut oil on his fur after.

I bathe my dog every 6-8 weeks. If he got muddy at the park I give a good rinse with the hose before bringing him in the house. Mud only looks gross but it really isn't necessary to do a full bath from just mud. I only do baths for when he is getting that musky dog smell or has gotten something gross on him like poop.

Rinsing doesn't damage coat or skin.

I give my dogs a shower about every 2 weeks.
I've been using eden honey shampoo for almost 2 years and never seen an issue with them.
I did order earthbath shampoo just now.

This was actually a very informative thread, as now I know I am allowed to bathe Cosmo more often without destroying his skin (:
