    If she has an odor between bath.... it could be a food allergy causing this. What do you currently feed?

    If the odor is simply a dog odor, and not some other funky odor (like an allergy/yeast/infection), I use a dryer sheet. I take one of my dryer sheets and wipe Koozer down with it...he smells like lavender and a bonus in the drier months is that he has less static!

    I feed athena science diet pupppy food. The breeder fed her the same thing so I have just kept her on it. She doesnt smell like a funky smell just like she needs a bath smell. But I dont want to bathe her to much and strip her of her oils she needs

    Please transition her to a better food (slowly) asap, I'd rec'cmd grain free
    & chicken free, under Forums go to Nutrition section & read up on reasons
    why.

    Dawn original dish washing liquid is gentle (why they use it on oil soaked
    birds) rinse well being careful to wash & rinse from neck down, wash head,
    face & ears w/warm wash cloth. After rinsing, mix half water & cheap white
    vinegar in plastic pitcher or jug and slowly pour from neck down, do not rinse
    out, blot dry. This will keep fresh smelling and make for soft fur.

    not a good food at all, you should read our food ratings list or even on dog food advisor as to why you want to do so.... it will make her smell, flaky coat, dull coat, stinky breath, etc etc.

    I agree, should be on a better food. In between baths I use a mix of Water, Tea Tree Oil, Lavender, Lemon Myrtle in a spray bottle. Smells awesome and is a natural flea repellent.

    In between baths, other than the daily cleaning of face wrinkles and underparts I sometimes use this product and also spray some on the bedding.

    I love the new dry shampoo from Pet Head as well. You can buy it on Amazon or even WalMart

    Try Etiderm shampoo - it's gentle and can be used often if needed. You leave it on 10 mins and she should smell good for at least 1 week or 2. Be careful with oatmeal shampoos in case of allergy/yeast issues or cheap things that could have irritants in them and make the skin smell worse - I prefer medicated ones and Etiderm has a nice scent. Some people like Zymox too and that one smells nice.
