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.

So, I am crate training Oakley still which  it is going well he only sometimes has accidents in the crate.  He will pee in the crate and lay and roll in it and he stinks so I have to keep giving him baths and I use oatmeal shampoo but I know that your only supposed to bathe them maybe twice a year.  Are there any alternatives to giving him a bath without him smelling like a puppy that has rolled in his own pee. Mad I forgot how stinky puppies can be! sheesh I dont want to keep giving him a bath and dry up his skin Crying or Very sad

I've seen in pet stores that they have pet bath wipes. They're essentially like wipes made for cleaning them without having to give them a full bath. Not sure how well they clean, but maybe give those a try?

Is his crate too big? I guess it strikes me funny he is 6 months and still having accidents. Ichigo got sick in his crate at night once and stood to not lay in poo till I found him. Poor baby.

When my dog use to have seizures, she would get a few bathes a month at times. I used aloe shampoo. I honestly can't imagine any good way to clean a dog full of urine besides bath. How often does it happen?
