We have adjusted our boy's diet, so there is no gas issues...

Glad I'm not the only one subjected to these flagrant calisthenics sessions ;D

We use J&J baby shampoo on Bronson whenever he crosses the intolerable smell threshold (once a month max)... Works better with sensitive skin than any dog shampoo we've tried!

I adore Morris's smell, but for me this statement would be one step too far. It's not the rump that smells per see, it's the risk of him doing the stretch-and-fart manoeuvre he's becoming infamous for, I'd be worried for my eyebrows...

Interestingly, I don't like popcorn smell; this is why I don't like going out to movies. But the V's popcorn-like smell is one of the best smells in the World. I wonder why is that? Our boy sleeps in our bed, in the middle and under covers, it could be either his head or his tail that is on the pillow; he smells good regardless which way he is facing me

We bathe Ruby every couple months. She doesn't really get stinky, but she gets more "dog" smell... mainly her paws and ears. She sleeps with me UNDER the covers so I prefer her to smell good. Hah.

The last time I bathed the dogs was after they played with a skunk. Before that I think it was when June played in a pond full of amebas. She stunk and had to go to the vets. Poor girls stomach was so upset.

Re: smelly boy

I think we are the odd balls in the bathing category.

We wash our boys weekly, but we do battle with allergies and keeping them clean and pollen free helps.

Sunday is "spa day." They get a bath with mild oatmeal/ aloe shampoo (sitting in suds for 10 minutes to avoid drying skin out), then nails, ears cleaned, and a light brush. If I have energy/ time after this they also get their paw pads coated with bag balm and their teeth brushed. The day care expresses their glands as needed, we usually do it about every 3 months.

After a beach session or particularly messy hike, they get sprayed off mid week.

Works for us, no stinky boys in our bed and no problems with dry skin.

Re: smelly boy

Let him get good and filthy, then throw a stick in a river

When you get home, really good towel dry, then either another towel down or a brush when dry.

I love that 'she smelt of LOVE' - SO TRUE

I'm getting a bit obsessed with burying my face in Morris's fur, the poor boy can barely move without me attacking him.

Also I took him to the forest and he came home head to toe in mud, you can't soap a Vizsla everyweek so how do you clean them?
He maybe doing the same thing in his crate when excited. If laying on the pad later, he would get smelly over time. You might consider just using towels in his crate, and change them out daily.
