dog smell

Any alternatives to getting my 4 month old pup to not smell like he's been running around in the sun for a billion hours? He's on Canidae, we try to not bathe him much since we figure it would make him smell more.. and puppy wipes aren't doing any justice.

If my dogs get a bit smelly and I don't want to give a bath, I'll sprinkle baking soda on them, rub it into their coat, and then brush them out. Works well for me.

Awesome, I'll try that. Just not too sure how he feels about brushing.. he never likes to hold still. Hahah.

I would bathe him with a neutral odor shampoo and then see if the smell returns. Watch him closely so he can't roll into anything smelly. If that same smell returns I would take him to the vet. Young GSD pups shouldn't have a strong dog odor.
Not to scare you but this was the first sign of WD's auto immune disease (I lost him to it) so that's why I am cautious about this.

Eeep. He has a vet appointment this Saturday so I'll mention it to the vet. x: We gave him a bath a few weeks ago.. but it's also been kinda warm and sunny here, so it could be anything..

could also have a yeast infection. careful with baking soda as it can dry out the skin.
