Gracie would smell whenever I took her out of her crate....turns out she wasn't holding her pee and would get it all over her. Funny (not ha ha funny but weird funny) was that she never smelled like pee....she smelled kinda fishy and had a weird feel (almost sticky) to her fur. I started taking her water up a few hours before bed and we no longer had the problem. Now she goes through the night and there is no smell. I used to bathe (bring it on.....I know it was to much lol) her everyday with a hypo-allergenic, organic, oatmeal shampoo until she stopped using her crate.
