LavenderMama89:  try hibiclens. It’s a skin anitseptic. Kills all sorts of nasty smelling bacteria. We’ve used it on pigs, dogs, ourselves. It’s a different approach. You can find it at drug stores or online.

LavenderMama89:  It wouldn’t be his anal glands, would it? Those can be smelly. Is he scooching his butt?

My friend swears by Dog Naturally (online mag) and regularly uses coconut oil for her dogs’ skin problems. Can take awhile to clear up, she said, but she says it works. We don’t have that problem at my house so I don’t have any personal experience.

I agree with the vinegar but make sure it’s white vinegar. It’s safe to use on everything if it’s diluted. You can use it on all fabrics too. Love the stuff. That and bicarbonate of soda are your best bets. Bathe the dog with diluted tea tree and labender essential oils too, and as another bee suggested, switch to grain free. Good luck and I hope your doggie still gets lots of love into his old age 🙂

We have a golden retriever and she gets stinky fast. I love her but sometimes her smell really gets to me. I didn’t grow up with dogs so when I got married it was a big adjustment (she was my husband’s dog). We have plug in air fresheners in just about every outlet in our house, I have several wax warmers all over the house that are always on when we’re home, we always have a candle burning, vacuum every 2 or so days, wash her bed cover to try and keep the stink at bay and bathe her every couple weeks, spray febreeze, you name it. It really is tough to stay on top of it. I really have no other suggestion than to just clean and try to keep on top of it
