I have to try the Apple Cider Vinegar!

Freestep There are many "waterless" shampoos out there, either in spray or powder form, which you just spray or sprinkle on the dry dog, and towel/brush it off--no rinsing. They are safe to use between baths and don't seem to contribute to dry skin. #1 All Systems makes a good one, as does Bio-Groom.

BellaLuna I can definitely try the apple cider vinegar we have it on hand b/c my hubby drinks it to keep his heartburn at bay.

My dogs don't really smell of anything. They often get an "earthy" smell when they've been out running in mud, but that's about it.

The only exception to this is when they manage to find fox poo, which they will inevitably roll in. Then they smell like dying.
ACV is a natural deodorizer. No, it doesn't make him sneeze, nor any of the fosters I've used it on. I use vinegar to clean too, but white vinegar, and they don't seem to mind that either.

love it! thats awesome. I have ONE friend who would actually sniff my dog. All my other friends would look at me like I'm nuts. The only reason Shasta got a bath last week was because she got into something sticky in the yard. She's all soft and fluffy again. I usually give a bath every season. bout it.

BellaLuna [QUOTE=Muneraven;2939602]Jaeger smells a little bit, mostly because the big doofus is still squatting when he pees and I think he sometimes gets a little on him. MAN UP, JAEGER!

I think it's cute when males squat lol How old is Jaeger?
