  • Put her in the tub or shower & wash her with baby shampoo. Then dry her with a hair dryer.

  • Could be a ear infection that is making your dog smell like a wet sock.

  • LOL, yuck! My dog stinks too. He has this chronic ear infection issue though. I got him groomed last Monday and I can already smell his ear. It had a very specific smell to it. Have you checked his ears? Just lift them up and sniff..... you'll be able to tell. Otherwise, what butterfly said..... ^^^

  • Give her a quick warm bath. It takes like 10 minutes to soap her up and rinse her off if you can get someone to help hold her. They also sell bath wipes for pets at the pet store or online. They also sell pet water additives to improve pets' dental breath and health which are AMAZING- Biotene Veterinarian Water Additive and Petrodex Dental Water additive
