bathing that often can cause skin irritation as it dries and washes away all the natural body oils , try only bathing once a month or if really needed. Lopez what kinda smell? is he getting into something outside? is there any skin issue going on at all that could maybe be a yeast infection? is it fishy , maybe anal glands needing cleaned?
I bathe mine maybe once a month depending if they even need it and they dont stink { they get a bath if they stink lol} baby wipes work great for spot cleaning like paws and face . does your dog live outside or inside?

well for leo it causes skin irritation not to bathe him because he was having pee issues for a while and getting diaper rash on his tummy...but I will take that advice :D and hypoallergenic shampoo was suggested for smells naturally emitted from the body not including possible infections or anal glands in case anyone was wondering..

yea, dont wahs too often or else your dogs skin will get very dry and itchy. angelbaby is correct. also your dog could smell because maybe his breathe stinks and he always licking himself? my dogs use to stink.. like bad.. after 2-3 weeks on their new raw diet they dont stink at all and i think they brush their teeth when im sleeeping and put tick tacs in their mouth in the morning...

My pup was alergic to all kinds of things. I finally did my research and what I use already was best for him. Lots of pet owners have used it and its totally safe and good for their skin. Some feel its pricy for a dog, but it takes care of his smell for about 2 weeks and he has no skin issues or rash at all, and other stuff used to make him raw.

I use the conditioner too. You can get it at stores or online shipping is free. Its 100% natural and gentle and a mix of 25 pure flower and plant essences.

shampure(tm) shampoo. shampoo. hair care. Aveda - products that nurture.
