Dogs need to be bathed regularly to remove dirt, oil, and dander from their fur. If a dog is not bathed often enough, they will start to smell.
Skin conditions such as allergies, yeast infections, and bacterial infections can cause a dog to smell bad.
Ear infections can cause a dog's ears to smell bad.
Anal glands are located on either side of a dog's anus. These glands produce a fluid that dogs use to mark their territory.
How often you need to bathe your dog will depend on their breed, coat type, and activity level.
Choose a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically designed for dogs. Avoid using human shampoo and conditioner, as this can dry out your dog's skin and make them smell worse.
It will also help to distribute your dog's natural oils throughout their coat, which will help to keep them smelling fresh.
