Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I've noticed that even after a bath or after getting even a little wet (I.e. if its barely even sprinkling) that mishkas fur just stinks and I cannot describe it and it isn't her ears or breath so idk what it is am I the only one

That is a little weird. I find that wet huskies don't have the typical "wet dog" smell. Is she a wooly?

Does Mishka like to go swimming in lakes or roll around in the mud often?

Okami does these things. A lot. Eventually she starts to smell funny... so I take her to the groomers at about that point. She smells nice after that for a few months.

Diz doesn't seem to be the typical husky, but we also live in the dirtiest city, so I need to bathe him about every 1-2 weeks. If I go longer than 2 weeks, he starts to stink. He also goes to daycare and plays all day, usually those days he comes home covered in drool, so that doesn't help either. I gave him a bath on Saturday and did two shampoos and it's the cleanest he's ever been. His fur was so nice and soft! I love it ha ha. He's in daycare today though so I'm sure he'll start to get stinky again soon. Sad brushing can help too though. How often do you brush your dog?

Nala has a funky smell to her when shes wet too almost like a dirty dog smell so i think its time to get her groomed although she HATES the groomers!

Yes she loves the creek and digs but doesn't rolll around in it and she isn't really that fluffy if that's what you mean by wooly I use what I use on chrim and she plays in the creek but doesn't smell then again she's a border not a husky is there any good deoderizing shampoo that also helps whiten her (mishka is all white)

You may want to consider a dry bath a couple of times, between the regular baths. It will help with allowing your dog to keep the natural oils and such that the skin produces that help maintain coat and reduce odor.
