|My vet has said that dogs' feet often smell like corn or potato chips because that's the only place they really sweat. That's why it smells faintly salty and chippy. It doesn't necessarily mean they're unhealthy. My girl's paws always have that faint smell, too, no matter what.
If it's the whole body doggy odor, I agree that often comes from feeding a grain (corn in particular) heavy diet...or the dog has possible yeast overgrowth. Apple cider vinegar (particularly organic with the mother) given daily can really help. So can plain yogurt, a tablespoon a day.
My best friend's Golden used to smell bad no matter how many baths, she started giving yogurt every day and that just about cured it. It helps digestion, so she started looking into feeding her dog better foods. Once she switched that over, his doggy odor really got under control in a matter of a couple months. No more eye boogies, either.
