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.

Hayden smells just HORRIBLE!! I've tried giving him bath's after bath's, sending him to the groomer, dry shampoo, sprays, etc. He smells like old sour milk! It's disgusting and smells up my house and even my car. I've smelled smelly dog's before, but nothing quite like this. My boyfriend's family bred boxers while he grew up, so he's been around ton's of dog's and said even he's never smelled anything like it. He's eating raw and that's suppose to get rid of the dog odor, but his is still strong. Anyone have any tip's or have similar issues? I don't wanna have to keep giving him all these bath's, because I don't want to dry out his skin and give him skin problems, but it's just a wretched smell! HELP anyone I'm desperate

These dogs typically don't have a strong odor. My first thought would be anal glands. I only trust the vet to completely expel/inspect that. Happens sometimes.

I agree with Eddy, sounds like an anal gland issue or perhaps a skin fungus.

Our friends Newfie had a small cut that became infected because it wasn't found quickly (most likely because of all that hair), the infection ended up making him super smelly. I don't know if that is likely, but it wouldn't hurt to give him a good once over to check for any wounds. Other than that, i definitely agree that it could be a glandular problem.

I would say anal glands as well! My lab had the problem a few months ago, it smelled like dead fish and was just so bad! She needed the glands expelled.

A few weeks ago I saw Balon "scooting" he was due for another shot so while there I had them express his!

The only thing keeping me from thinking it's anal gland's is that he went to the groomer a little over a week ago and they expressed his anal glands. The smell is more towards his neck and back area vs his butt area. I'm gonna take him into the vet and get their opinion.
