I have a healthy and happy APBT. She will be 3 soon and it seems that no matter what shampoo I use on her and I've tried a bunch of different ones in about 3 or 4 days the doggie odor is back. Does anyone have any suggestions??? Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Natures Miracle makes a between bath spray that we use. It works great to freshen up since Daisy has a very typical houndy musk smell.

As long as you are eliminating any health issues (yeasty ears ect. ) I recommend several things. First Lambert Kay's Fresh and Clean is a good product but it won't do miracles.

Make sure you're not leaving outside too long in the heat as the heat will add to doggy odor. Food can be a Big factor in this, even if you're feeding a quality food sometimes dogs don't always do well on different foods. Also if you don't have any cats you can use lemon water wipes in between baths, or baby wipes when she comes in.

Feel free to pick my brain though.

Three things that I have found contribute to doggy odor a lot:

1) Diet-- The diet can affect the way your dog smells. A higher quality food with less fillers and unnecessary ingredients can cause a smelly dog. Also some dogs tend to smell on a fish-based diet. I use grain-free foods with no fillers.

2) Outside time-- Dogs who spend a lot of time outdoors tend to smell doggy. If your dog likes to lay in the grass or dirt this can also add to the odor.

3) Health-- Issues like ear infections, anal glands needing expressing or allergies can make for a smelly dog.


So if you want a nicer smelling dog, keeping those in mind can help. Also some dogs just have more of an odor than others and it is not always easy to fix that. Also bathing a dog too often can sometimes make them smell stronger.

I haven't found any particular shampoo to be better for odor, although they do make some that are especially for odors and have things like baking soda. Buddy Wash is supposed to be good for odor but I haven't tried it, or something like this:

I have done a sugar scrub and that helps to get them really nice and clean and get rid of the doggy smell. I found the info on a groomer forum site. I used olive oil and turbinado sugar mixed with a little honey.
This is where I heard about that:

The best thing I've found to keep a nice smell around for a longer time period is Fresh n Clean cream rinse.

I found that Perfect Coat a waterless shampoo that I got at PetsMart, or I think you can order online, works great on our Golden Retriever between shampoos. You might also check that there isn't a hot spot or bacterial infection going on. Sometimes that can make them smell, too.
Good luck.

I use Cloud Star's "Buddy Wash" shampoo, conditioner, and spritz on my dog. The shampoo and conditioner comes in a few different scents now, all of which I find pleasant. I especially like that even a week or more after a bath, every time Kit gets wet (from rain usually) his fur smells like his shampoo instead of wet dog.

The spritz is a leave in so you just spray it on their fur and don't have to worry about rinsing it out or anything. It smells nice and conditions their fur. It's great for in between baths when you don't want to go through the hassle of a full bath but want to freshen your dog up.
