The Furminator can destroy a beautiful coat. Just something to be aware of. Check the threads.

Just sayin' I wouldn't perfume nor Furminate my dogs. There are simpler, healthier options.

Just a tip--if you have a smelly dog and you're sensitive to perfumes, you can try adding baking soda to the dog shampoo and letting the dog soak in it for a few minutes. It really seems to help absorb odors. You can also sprinkle it onto a dry dog and brush it out.

Every 2Months

I take my two Germans to the groomer every two months.
They get a flea bath, nail trim, and ear cleaning. Also a DEEP
"FURMINATOR" comb out. In between the grooming sessions
I comb them and brush them out and do an occasional dental cleaning. I will spray them with human cologne on the surface of their backs, and rub some of the cologne on their heads.
They smell great. I have been doing this for years with my other dogs too-- they might not like the smell of human cologne, but I do, and they have never gotten sick from it either.

JackandMattie No doggie perfume here. If my dogs get smelly, it's because they are ill or their diet isn't right, and I want to know that, not mask it. Also, since they smell a gazillion more things than I can, I try to keep the artificials to a minimum in my household, so they aren't tortured

If your dog stinks, take him for a checkup, and examine his diet, his teeth, and solve the problem at its core. A healthy dog smells only slightly earthy and mostly Fabulous!

Chicagocanine Oh yeah I've also heard a sugar scrub (during a bath) can work well for odor and some skin issues, clean the skin/coat really nice too. I made one once, with turbinado sugar and olive oil.

You can read about them here: Anyone sugar scrub their dogs?

Blanketback I actually love the smell of GSDs. I have a bottle of dog shampoo that's probably as old as some of the members here, lol. All of my dogs have had a short stock coat, so they're pretty self-cleaning. Even caked with mud, it just has to dry and it falls right off - a brushing takes care of the rest. My 2 year old has had only 1 bath in his life, which wouldn't have even been needed if I'd have dried him off properly and he never got mildew in his coat.

wolfy dog Mine would preferably roll in deer poop. I rinsed their green necks off, rubbed my hands in the rosemary bush and back onto them. They never seemed to mind and the new smell made me forget the previous one. One once actually rolled in a decomposed seal on the beach. The "stuff" was stuck in his collar! I didn't have anything with me to fix that so I took him into the surf and washed him with the ocean water and sand. Never forget that smell and the 2 hour drive home..... He got washed with regular dog shampoo.

Sri I don't know if it is bad for them, but the instant after I used a conditioner/freshener my dog was whining to go out and then ran around sniffing and rolling in the grass and dirt, rubbing his back and even head into the ground, for a good ten minutes like a crazy puppy. It was quite comical. Now if he is smelly or muddy, I just wipe him down with water and towels and rub coconut oil in.
