What can I do about this smell (my dog)

I can not take her to the groomer until payday and I don't know why but my dog smells like a stinky sock.
I can't just leave her outside bc it is freezing outside...but as I am sitting here I can smell her she's like 10 feet away me...
Can not bathe her myself she won't let me.

  • What does she not let you do? I would tie a leash to the shower stall and wash my parents dog in the tub.

  • Sometimes just giving your dog a good brushing will get rid of the smell. And on payday, I would buy a bottle of waterless dog shampoo to keep handy. I'll use that on my dog when it's too cold outside. Works great.

  • If you have a brush and are very careful you cal rub a little baking soda into her fur (I do mean a little you can cause breathing problems if you are not very very careful) and then brush her very well.

  • In the wintertime, we use the waterless, spray on shampoo. It makes them smell so much better :p

  • LOL, that's a dog for ya. My dog stinks about four days after his bath. It's because all of his bedding already stinks and smells like him. The one time I tried to clean all his bedding, it confused him. My dog gets ear infections, so that's what I usually notice first.

    You got some good advice up there though....^^^

  • Higher quality food can help. Also check her ears (sniff them) for infection and her teeth/gums (well, pretty much check her all over for any infections (skin, private, bottom).
