I use an oatmeal and almond scented shampoo.
The perfumed shampoos smelled great at first, but add some wet dog dank and it's like spraying febreeze after dropping a rancid seafood BM. Sure the poop stinks, but why did I just add cinnamon spice to the farkin mix? Turn on the damn exhaust fan and turn off the light. It's a universal sign for the next visitor to enter cautiously.

Hydrogen peroxide + sodium bicarbonate + Dawn soap = clean dawg.

We have TONS of skunks around here and this is really the only way to do it. The peroxide and baking soda neutralize the thiols that stick to skin and hair. Anything else just masks the scent and doesn't remove the actual chemicals.

Don't waste your time with tomato juice and a Voodoo high priest.

I used to be a dog groomer for a living. My favorite dog shampoos/conditioners are made by Double K and Tropiclean. Generally speaking I don't care what the dog shampoo smells like, if you can smell it after you're done you didn't rinse enough. What I'm looking for in a shampoo is that it does a good job of stripping oils and organics without over doing it and damaging the skin. It also needs to rinse out well. So usually my dog shampoos dilute at least 40:1 for easy application and removal. One bottle lasts forever.

Conditioners are where I tend to spend a bit more time/money because they are only mostly rinsed out and have a greater lasting effect on skin, hair health. Scents tend to be detectable there. I also own little dogs with long hair that needs moisturizer to prevent hair breakage. Again, diluted and a bottle lasts forever but the latest bottle is an almondish scent that I really like and leaves them super soft.

We have a 10 year old treeing Walker (the American version of the English fox hound).  I love him dearly, but boy does he stink.  He has "hound smell". And it seems to be getting stronger bad he is getting old.

Tropiclean smells nice and cuts it for a while, but I haven't found anything that really keeps it at bay for any length of time.

Can't go wrong with this product.  If your dog is really stinky, mix in some betadine solution.  Also, wash your dog twice.  Run a comb through its hair after both washes.

Adding to this, don't perfume your dog.  That's just asking for skin and allergy issues.  I think I've used a similar hypoallergenic oatmeal and almond scented shampoo, but don't try to cover your dog's smell with unnatural perfume.  Your dog should smell like clean dog, not cinnamon spice, as Redh8t has pointed out.

I had beagles for years.  I get that hounds can um, develop a musk.  See my above post.  Also:

Mix in some betadine solution in his next bath.  Be generous.  That should cut the stinky bacteria making him smell bad.  It's fairly innocuous, but keep it out of his eyes, like any soap.  A clean dog should smell like clean dog, not perfume or nasty hound-stink.

Try the horse shampoo up-thread.  Mane & Tail.  I've never used it, but I've heard amazing things about it.  Totally safe for dogs.

Scrub his skin.  Get in there with your fingernails.  You might find he has an underlying skin issue causing problems.

Wash his bedding every time you wash the dog.  Scrub his crate or whatever he sleeps in.

If that doesn't take after two washings, check with your vet to see if he has anal gland problems.  Also, not trying to worry you, but he might have cancer of some other condition causing an off-smell.

I missed your call to order. Sorry...

How often do you bathe your dogs?
I usually bathe the hounds two or three times a year. Mostly to facilitate shedding hair in the warmer temperatures, and to prepare a winter coat.
/No sass, just asking for your opinion.

When they got stinky, greasy, or they seemed like they had dandruff. Maybe every two months, unless they rolled in shiat or had explosive diarrhea from worms or something else.

Don't want to wash them too much, or you can exacerbate skin issues. Really only when they needed it.
 
2020-07-12 6:04:07 AM  
My last dog was my girlfriend's. He smelled like Fritos. I'm not kidding. Fritos. He was a Shih Tzu, and when the apt started to smell like Fritos it was time to take him in the shower with me. At first he didn't dig it but after a while he wanted to hop in whenever I was getting ready for work. Here he is:

My next-to-last dog was an Akita. He was a great guy, but bathing was problematic. At the time I had a large shower but it only annoyed him. So I just hosed him in the driveway with doggo white shampoo. The only pic I can find is from 2001, and that's my fiancee (at the time).

To give you an idea of how big he was, she's 6' tall.

I discovered that during the Great Skunk War of 2017 (a family of them moved into my basement that summer).  It does make for a clean dog and it doesn't trigger my allergies.

Hi former-dog-groomer farker!  I have a question for you. I have Aussies with especially thick fur - they choose to stay outside most of the winter and their undercoats are beyond thick.  Is there any tool or anything that would help me penetrate their coat more easily?  They hate baths and it turns into an hour long wresting match for each dog to actually get them clean.

I didn't really mind it too much until it started getting stronger a year or so ago.  The vet said that happens with hounds and wasn't too worried about it.

Poor guy is getting old and starting to fall apart. Just like the rest of us.  He's still a good boy.

Force dryer and a steel comb with tines long enough to go to the skin, a steel coat rake with teeth that will go to the skin also works. Wash them outside tied up, quick dry with a towel until the dog feels like a damp towel and then use the force dryer outside til they are bone dry. Then comb from behind the ears to the back end until the comb pulls through smoothly, then force dry again. Your dog will be deshedded. See the next paragraph.

There are certain medical conditions with dogs that can cause bad shed outs which lead to excessive undercoat that won't shed right easily. The most common one is spayed biatch coat, which is a natural offset of lack of reproductive hardware and hormones in female dogs. These dogs can develop coats that I used to refer to as an overgrown hedge and may need some help with their coat from an actual skilled groomer. Other common coat issues more often relate to age and obesity with thyroid, diabetes, and cushings being a thing. So if a simple cleaning doesn't solve the issue, you may need a vet or professional groomer.

A force dryer is an expense but for just a couple dogs isn't something you have to sink several hundred dollars into, but isn't really something that there is a lesser replacement for. For my few dogs I use a $70 model with variable speed and heating, and should last me the rest of my life assuming I don't burn out the motor somehow. Really the only things you get from the more expensive models is longer running time before you start damaging the motor.

After many stinky dogs, some naturally smelly, others who liked to roll in stank or swim in dirty water, we now have a dog that does not have any odor. We've had her 6+ years, and other than once or twice having to rinse off some poop she rolled in, she has never had a bath.

However, she does have ass-breath pretty bad -- but the breath treats keep it bearable.

This doesn't pertain to bathing. However, considering your experience; what is the best remedy for a sun cracked nose/snout? It doesn't bleed but it looks like a dry lake bed.

dickfreckle: My last dog was my girlfriend's. He smelled like Fritos. I'm not kidding. Fritos. He was a Shih Tzu, and when the apt started to smell like Fritos it was time to take him in the shower with me. At first he didn't dig it but after a while he wanted to hop in whenever I was getting ready for work. Here he is:

I've found that the Frito smell tends to come from the bacteria that grow between the pads of the toes.  I guess that the same bacteria could cause odors on other parts of the body, though.

foo monkey: Redh8t: foo monkey: When they got stinky, greasy, or they seemed like they had dandruff. Maybe every two months, unless they rolled in shiat or had explosive diarrhea from worms or something else.

Don't want to wash them too much, or you can exacerbate skin issues. Really only when they needed it.

This doesn't pertain to bathing. However, considering your experience; what is the best remedy for a sun cracked nose/snout? It doesn't bleed but it looks like a dry lake bed.

talk to your vet.  I'd think some kind of hypoallergenic, unscented lotion, or maybe neosporin, but not a doctor.


You're still helpful though.
Thank you!

Mom worked for vets for years, and she always swore by Bag Balm.  It's good for a lot of stuff -- heat rashes, diaper rash, cracked skin, you name it.
