My Doberman stinks. Is there anything I can spray on him to make him smell better?

My first thought is to bathe the dog. There are dog shampoos with baking soda in them and shampoos with oatmeal is good for their skin. Special fragrance shampoos that are suppose to keep your pet fresher longer. I buy from Jefferspets.com as they have a lot of everything to experiment with shampoos, conditioners and spray fragrances for pets in between baths.

If the dog's ears are odorous and black tarry substance when cleaning, then your dog has ear infection and needs medication to clear it up.

Wow. Just a little bit ago, I came across this while reading up on uses for vinegar!

Get Rid of Odor on a Smelly Dog

Wet the dog down with fresh water. Use a mixture of 1 cup white distilled vinegar and 2 gallons water. Saturate the dog's coat with this solution. Dry the dog off without rinsing the solution. The smell will be gone!

I hope this helps!

Too cold? Take him to a groomer, the poor guy might just need a bath.

The only other thing I can think of is to sprinkle him with baking soda, kind of work it through his fur, leave it for a bit and then brush it out.

I'm not sure, but it doesn't seem like it would hurt him in any way.

Also check a pet store, they usually sell pet "perfumes" so they might have an odor neutralizing spray.

Dogs will sometimes develop a bad smell if they have hypothyroidism. This can be treated with inexpensive medication from your vet. Please have him checked for this.

Have you tried changing his food to a top quality one? Or even a homemade or raw food diet? A lot of smelly dogs (and people) are stinky because their bodies are trying to get rid of toxins, chemicals, etc. I work with a lot of dogs, and I've seen so much improvement in dogs just by feeding them high quality food like homemade food and/or raw food diets.

Take him to the vet to make sure there isn't a medical reason for this.

Work him over with some baby wipes. His vet should be sure there is no periodontal disease in his mouth, as that would be deep bone infection which can certainly put up an odor.

Find out the cause of the odor and treat that instead of treating the symptom. Good luck.
