I know dogs will be dogs, but I have a 5-year-old Maltese who loves to go out and roll in smelly, yucky stuff outside. I think it must be some type of musky discharge from a wild animal. I don't know where it is in the yard so I can't bury it nor cover it up in some way. He also does this at a lake we go to when we're on vacation. He knows how to find rotting fish and he's crazy about rolling in that, as well. He playfully teases my other dog, a Japanese Chin to join him and if he does, my work is cut out for me!
Two years ago, I had to wash them every single day of vacation...so time-consuming and UNPLEASANT!!!
Last night, Rocky the Maltese went out and found some "musk" to roll around in. The odor was so overwhelming I was nauseated and it just got stronger the longer he was in the house. He is a "house dog" and wants to sleep on my bed with me...so, there I am at 11:00 PM trying to bathe him and get the smell out. I shampooed him three times and each time I rinsed with something different to try to eradicate the smell. White vinegar, mouthwash with chlorophyll, and a homemade Tea Tree rinse. This morning he still exudes that terrible musky odor.
Does anyone have a tried & true method for getting the "stink" out?
Obviously, Rocky thinks he smells like the finest French perfume or some doggie version of it! He comes to the door with an excited and happy look on his face as if he's been having the most fun in the world!
It's confusing for him when I have to whisk him into the shower or the sink in the garage where I bathe them. I feel like I'm spoiling some harmless fun, but geez...I just can't stomach that odor! HELP!!!
