My grandson always asks me after I clean, why my house smells like French fries. Lol

    humidity definitely enhances "dog smell" in our house...but I blame previous owners and older hard wood floors...'cause my dog never stinks

    once a week here too. We give coconut oil with his meals from time to time. No dried skin so far.

    YES! Every time it rains, the doggy smell comes out, even if you can't smell it otherwise!

    Hi you've already been given great advice and suggestions. I also bath our guys once every two weeks, and I use a Tearless Puppy Shampoo, they are gentler than regular shampoos, and they usually have nice fresh scents like Baby Powder. I use Petsmarts Brand of Tearless Puppy Shampoo, I rinse them with with equal, parts of white vinegar and warm water, it keeps them smelling nicer longer in between their baths, it conditions their skin and it removes the excess soap residue. I don't have any carpets in my house on the main level, we have hardwood floors everywhere except the kitchen and entrance hallway which is tiled, the basement is finished and has a Berber carpet, but the dogs will not go down the stairs, so they are never in the basement. I sweep, Swiffer, and vacuum on Wednesday's, and I sweep Swiffer and damp mop on Sundays. I use Mr Clean on my floors to wash, and then I use plain warm water and White vinegar to go over the floors after they are washed. I also wash their towels and face cloths, right after I use them, and I wash their clothes and sweaters on a regular basis, plus I also wash their collars and leashes in the machine and let them air dry. I don't have to worry about bedding because they can't have any pillows and blankets as they chew and swallow them. My furniture is very easy to keep clean as well, because I have leather, which is really easy to keep clean, I use Swiffer dusters to pick up the loose hairs, and I mix warm water and a squirt of Dawn dish soap with a little white vinegar with a microfibre cloth to wipe down the couch and loveseat. It cleans and dusts the furniture at the same time.
    This thread is making me tired!
