You also get an added scent boost as the oils diffuse through the vacuum and the carpets smell AMAZING for at least 4-5 days. So I would do it twice a week!

scarfish, as usual your attempt at humor isn't funny.
Maybe you should take that old advice, "if you don't have anything constructive to say, keep your mouth shut"

Diet is likely the issue.
When we first got Lako, he STANK to high heaven! He was being fed Ol' Roy dog food, which is complete garbage.
We switched him to Fromm, a high quality kibble and now he smell almost sweet. It's a nice comforting smell.

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! He doesn't have a very strong smell, he just leaves one behind when he is in my room. I think its because he lays down on the carpet in the same spots frequently. I keep him very clean, I brush him daily and he had a bath last week. I may just need to take him to a groomer and maintain him from there, lol.
Or, it may just be the fact that he lays on carpet for longgg periods of time. I might have to just get him a bed and see if that helps. And some febreeze or something. Lol.

How often do you bathe him? You might want to try taking him to a professional groomer, they can usually do a more thorough job than is possible to do at home.
As far as I'm concerned, GSDs should not have a "doggy" odor if they are kept reasonably clean and brushed out. If there is a persistent odor, there may be an underlying problem. Then again, as a groomer, I'm around dirty dogs all day long so I don't notice doggy odor unless it is fairly strong.

Or....wash bedding and carpeting often. Keep wet dogs off of carpeting and bedding. Food can play a part in odor, dogs on raw diets don't seem to have as much of that doggy smell.

|Blanketback||GSDs shouldn't ever smell bad. IME, the only time they smell bad is when they haven't been dried properly and they get mildew in their coat. This happened to my pup, and that was a really gross stench. Could this be the issue?|

I agree doggy odor can be food related. Smell might be soaked into stuffed bedding and pillows too. I throw my dog beds over the clothes line and let them air out now and then in addition to washing the covers.
