Dog Has Odor Even After Bathing?

I have tried several products and none of them do the job. I want sound advice as I have spent enough money and none of the products work. I only get temporary results.

What kind of dog do you have? Is it indoor or outdoor? And what products have you been using?

My female schnauzer licks her legs and feet and it smells terrible I have used all kinds of product including Dawn dish liquid and thinking about using lemon juice will this help I know dogs do not like citrus smells will it keep her from licking her feet I have used the ones that are sold at the store she licks It Off doesn't change her attitude to licking her feet

We have a boxer English bull mix. Aka valley bull dog. Stinks to high heaven until: 1 teaspoon of coconut oil a day. Also these breeds have dry bumpy noses.


Rub it on his nose works wonders. Won't like it on his nose but loves the oil flavor and the stinks gone. He is an indoor dog

Diet & infection.

Dogs tend to smell more or less depending on what they eat. Raw fed dogs tend to smell less most often as they are eating their proper diet and thus aren't having body chemistry balance issues.

Infection can be bacterial or yeast/fungal. Diet can exacerbate it, but can also be because of breed, environment or simply just exposure that took root. Check for rash, hives, pimples or sores on the dog's skin. That would be everywhere, underside, ears, back etc.

Dogs have a natural odor. When you bath them, it's back in a day or two. They are not going to smell "fresh" very long. If you are expecting it /them to smell like a person who is clean, it won't happen. Actually people have a natural odor themselves after a day or two of not bathing, and I am referring to an oil smell and not B.O.


I don't know how bad this odor is, but if it is bad, then maybe something is wrong with the dog (internally) or the dog is getting into something or sitting or sleeping on something smelly which is causing the odor.

That is not true. Some dogs naturally do not have the dog smell. It varies from dog to dog. I noticed my stinky dog was no longer stinky when we starting using a different snack for her. The store no longer carries that snack and I don't have the name...back to a stinky dog.

After washing your dog, rinse with a 3:1 solution of water [3] and vinegar[1]. The vinegar smell will only be temporary [depending on the size of your dog] but it's coat will be beautifully soft and squeaky clean.


Vinegar is antiseptic and antibiotic, your dog's skin will benefit as well. Zinc is also a remedy for doggie's bad breath.

Maybe the anal glands need to be emptied. It is common for them to still smell after a bath when this is needed. If you don't know how, you can look it up on the computer or have a dog groomer or the vet do it.

Either you're overly sensitive about odors or you need to take your dog to a vet for evaluation. Dogs like humans have their own smell but if your animal is healthy and you clean the house every week it shouldn't be a problem.


Does your dog have any sores on it's body, bad teeth & gums, etc.? Take it up with your vet.
