Tips for smell

Does anyone have a trick or tip to keep their dog smelling good? Hugo never had a problem with smelling bad but recently he has been having a weird smell to him.

the smells can alert you to health issues .

what is the smell ? Is it yeasty , musty, fishy?

from what area does this smell emanate? Ears, mouth, breath, skin, rear end, belches , stool or urine?

Sorry, I should have been more specific. We sit out on the deck and he lays in the grass, so he gets an outside/grass smell to him. I just wanted to see if there were any tricks to combat that. Like baby powder, baking soda or something of that sort.

Why is that bad (if it is a healthy lawn)? Don't mess with his coat. Other take: what's wrong with your grass? Or did he roll in something hidden in the grass? (animal feces, decomposed small animals like snails, slugs, mice etc)

I can say my new boy is stinky. He spent years in cheap kibble and the smell seems to be ingrained. He was bathed when he got here and been fed raw since, neither has seemed to make the smell go away!

If you are sensitive to 'out doorsy' smells and your dog doesn't have any type of allergy issues, you can wash/dry his dog blankets using specific fabric softeners and dryer sheets. When he lays on them he'll pick up that scent.

....after which he may want to redo it to get rid of the scent you so prefer.
