What do you use to camouflage a Doug's smell?

I just bathe my dog 1 week ago and ow she smells like that dog smell.

I'm thinking of putting some baking soda on her coat would that help?
We are going out of town and I plan on taking her...I don't need to bathe her again so soon, she's alot of work...ugh!

Thanks ladies!

  • Yes you can use baking soda on your dog. Rub the baking soda down into his fur. Make sure you get it all the way to his skin, since obviously this can be a source of the doggy odor! Brush the soda out of his fur. Use a brush that is firm enough to get the baking soda out, but not so stiff that a vigorous brushing will hurt him. The exact type of brush you choose will depend on the type and length of your dog’s coat. As you remove the powder, the odors will come out with it. Good luck!

  • hahahahaha yeah that made me laugh!! I had a dog that had his own "puppy smell" that he never grew out of. He still smelled like himself after a bath. I'm not sure you can do much other than bathe her. I know they make a deodorizing spray for ferrets. Not sure if they make something like it for a dog

  • It may be the anal glands. Our Vet takes care of our Dogs, you may want to have them express them.

  • For Dougs try Old Spice. lol.

    For dogs, I found a lovely grapefruit scented canine cologne at my local T.J. Maxx.

  • Check your pet store. There are lots of dry shampoos and sprays so that you don't have to bathe a dog to often and dry out the skin. I can't recall the name of the one I used to like when I had a long-haired golden retriever, but I know it ad citrus in it. Regular brushing will help as well. I'd worry about putting baking soda on her coat in case she licks it off.
