I think this might have something to do with the breed of dog it is. My male golden did have a smell, but I was told that is typical of goldens. As he got older I don't smell him, he was fixed at 6 monthish.
Misty- Samoyed Mix
Tannor- Golden Retriever CGC
Robyn- German Shepherd CGC
Cats-Thunder, Harley, Miley, Bandit, and Ferah
