That “pitbull” smell...

My 2yo pitty-mix, Auggie, is a blanket thief. This wouldn’t be a problem except we can not find a way to get his distinct smell out of them once he claims them.

Auggie’s smell is NOT related to medical or food problems - our vet swears he’s healthy as can be and the smell is just his unique b.o. Reassuring, but not helpful.

Additionally, he has pretty sensitive skin so I never have or would use scented products on him.

So, since we can’t change the dog, I’m hoping someone else has run into something similar and has a miracle fix for getting the smell out of the blankets. (Honestly, he only had to get ahold of one for about half an hour and it’s a goner.)

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum ktdlap and thanks for the great picture. Auggie is a looker for sure. A few things come to mind, try a cup of vinegar in the wash machine when you wash the blanket, spray the blanket with a product called "Nature's Miracle", click HERE and after it sets awhile wash as usual in the machine. One last thought would be to add ammonia to the wash machine along with the detergent. Hope any of this helps.

One of my pitties smells like corn chips. I read somewhere that it is an over production of yeast. Or something to that effect. Don't know if this pertains or what to do about it. But it doesn't harm the dog, it just smells.

Usually, the "Frito" smell stems from the ears and is an inner ear yeast problem. Not always but worth checking.

Thanks, yes I believe you may be right! . "Sam" does need his ears cleaned frequently. I didn't put the two together until you just mentioned it. I Appreciate it.

Pick yourself up some ZYMOX HC 10% solution and follow the direction. No prescription needed and you can even buy it on Amazon.

Well that makes me happy. Sincerely glad it helped pittyitts. Give Sam a scratch behind his ears for me.

My son's dog had that strong odor problem and very sensitive skin. I remember that the odor was hard to wash out, but he never had that problem whenever I took care of him. Since your dog is in good health, it might be sebhorrea, especially if he has greasy fur or flaky skin. You might want to try Dermoscent Essential 6 Spot-On for dogs. It's available from Chewy or Amazon and is applied to the dog's skin between the shoulder blades. It reinforces the natural barriers against bacteria, yeast, fungi, etc. I know you said you prefer odor-free products but this is composed of essential oils, not perfumes. Let us know how it goes.

Will do thanks. Jttar suggested zymox for the ears and that helped, he has always had ear trouble, not bad just annoying. But I'll try your suggestion.

@Betty_the_boss I will give it a try - he does have a bit of dry skin, so you might be onto something with the seborreah.
