My dog Riley stinks. We have a pool, so he goes swimming a lot when people are at work or school. Btw, we live in Phoenix, Arizona, so I don't blame him one bit. Anyway, Riley swims all the time, so we thought that he might have gotten mildewey from never drying off. We shaved him, but that didn't work. We gave him baths, but that only worked very temporarily, for like a couple hours. The stink is kind of on and off, more on than off. It has gotten to the point where Riley will come in the house and in a matter of seconds everyone in the house is plugging their noses. We need help! Any advice you could give us would be amazing. Thx!

What does he smell like? Have you checked or had his anal glands checked?

Check his anal glands (if you don't know how ask your vet to) and then I would go over his diet with your vet. It could be that something you are feeding isn't agreeing with his body chemistry.
Also an important thing to figure in as well are all the chemicals used in your pool. These weren't meant to be used by dogs and there for could be causing the odor your smelling. Just a thought, Terri
