Smelly Dog!

Ranger stinks. He loves my kid's kiddie pool...so if he's outside for more than 5 minutes...he takes a dip in it. I dont mind....he dries fairly quick and has yet to go roll in dirt and get muddy while wet. He usually takes a dip then goes and lays on the deck.

But he stinks! He smells like wet dog even once he's dried.

What's a good shampoo that deodorizes?

(he's a long coat too....so very fuzzy)

Re: Smelly Dog!

They have puppy wipes! Instead of bathing him too often, maybe try the wipes, I use them, puts a fresh scent on her.

Re: Smelly Dog!

You could also use a moisturizer or spritze in between baths or water play. I use ones from Earth bath like these: Earth Bath Sprtizes or Natrual's Care Veterinarians Best: Natural Veterinarians

Re: Smelly Dog!

When he gets wet, even if he feels dry on top, the water coat be sitting against his skin which can lead to yeast and other irritations.

Re: Smelly Dog!

I"m wondering if there isn't a food issue if he really does smell.

OMG! YES! Wipes are amazing and won't dry out a GSD's skin, a problem that arises with constant bathing. I'm extremely sensitive to wet dog smell; while other people smell nothing I'm gagging (perhaps this is because I was a previous cat person before getting my own dog!) I would definitely suggest them. They're super easy to use and do their job well.

Re: Smelly Dog!

Puppy Wipes? What exactly is in them?

I've always found that hosing off a puppy is the best way to clean them. Putting all that stuff on their coat isn't good for them.

Re: Smelly Dog!

Where Penny grew up I didn't have access to a hose and boy did she get filthy every day! I used baby wipes instead of puppy wipes as they are basically the same yet much much cheaper!

But as far as a bath, just get a good all around soap free oatmeal shampoo, give a bath and then if the dog still smells when wet or otherwise something, maybe the food as mentioned, isn't right.

Re: Smelly Dog!

Yes. My pup is stinking also. I'm wondering if it's the Flagyl (sp?) med for the Giardia and garlic supplement that's making him stink. I feed Blue Buffalo large breed. It seems the funky smell is recent. He's been on the meds for 5 days now. Hmmmm, do you think the med is causing BO? And are GS particularily stinky dogs? Some breeds are stinkier than others and since this is my 1st GS, I don't know. My Labs don't stink like this.

I bought baby wipes and going to wipe him down to see if it helps.
