    Default my lola smells

    I bath her regular but not too much and she smells lovely for a few days then starts to stink again!
    Ive checked her ears and they seems clear and clean.

    Is there a recommended shampoo i can use that will keep her smelling nice for more than a few days ?

    Thanks alot

    Most dogs will have a "doggie" odor that is quite natural. Our Sophie gets it a week after her bath. I rather like it.

    you might want to try one of the grooming shampoo's/conditioners you can get from most pet shops. you just spray them on and brush them through - we've got a lavendar smelling one that we use every few days it smells lovely

    Molly and Dougall are not impressed with Groomers De-tangling spray but I think it smells great!

    I personally believe a lot of that has to do with their diet. Are you feeding her a really good food? If so, maybe try some baby wipes and some doggie perfume!

    I would have to agree with Trisha and suggest that diet has a lot to do with it.I find if Daisy gets something like Dentastix this awful odour seeps through her entire body.

    It might be their teeth. Have they had them cleaned by the vet?

    It could be teeth or infected folds at the side of the mouth.

    I would also check to see whether she is getting her feathering very wet with urine when she squats......this can give a strong odour when it dries.

    For this sort of doggy hygiene problem, male or female, a daily wipe down with a wet flannel dipped in a 'baby bath' solution ( no rinsing ) can help.
    I keep a bottle ready made up, & baby wipes, handy in the kitchen.
