Re: Body Odor
Yeah, I don't believe that is normal. Maybe it's the ears like mentioned above, or maybe it's the anal glands? I know our breeder said once in awhile certain dogs will need to have their anal glands emptied if they don't do it on their own. Luckily, we haven't had to do this yet, but I know someone else who has. Does your dog smell ALL the time? Or sporatically, as if they have gas but it smells different than a regular dog fart (which still isn't pleasant, lol)? Another thing it may be is the paws, sometimes Shelby's feet will smell like popcorn or "Frito feet". That's just the smell of the bacteria they get between their toes. I think there's some things you can do about that as well, but most of the time it's not that bad. Just a few ideas, wasn't sure if it was a certain body part that smelled (ears, anal glads, paws) or if it was just an overall body odor. All I know is that vizslas are known for NOT smelling like dog and generally are hard to smell at all.
