There are dog perfume sprays if you want to mask the smell. Bathing your dog too often (more than once a week) can dry out its skin.
Yes, its true. All of mine are raw fed, have been their whole lives and have no odor. We've had visitors come over, and comment on how they are surprised that with six dogs in the house, they don't smell a dog smell. The higher the quality of the diet, the less you will smell. Kibble fed, or otherwise.What they're eating can also impact a dog's odor. I've noticed that my cousins dog really smells terrible, even though she goes to the groomer regularly. She eats Purina. I don't smell a strong stink on Aspen. I've asked friends and family (ones I know would be honest) and they also don't smell anything.
I have no experience with this, but from what I've heard, raw fed dogs have very little odor.
You'd also get used to any smell the longer you're around it. (Think like cooking smells, they usually linger for a while after cooking but unless you leave and come back you don't really notice much after you're done cooking)It may be also a matter of the outlook of the person who is doing the smelling. To me, my dog's scent is barely noticeable, and I think that to this person who has no dogs, any dog scent may be objectionable.
Of course, I have come across dogs who would be objectionable to almost anyone, usually after they find something very ripe and roll in it for a while.
Oh man, If I gave Tucker a bath every time he whizzed on himself he'd be getting 1-3 per day. He's the worst!The only time I usually notice a faint doggy odor on my boy is if he's gotten wet and it's been a few months since I last bathed him. The exception to that rule is if he's managed to roll on something or he's pulled off the pee on my own leg maneuver, when he manages either of those he's generally brought home and given a bath right away.
I've had the same comment from visitors to my house.Yes, its true. All of mine are raw fed, have been their whole lives and have no odor.
