Dog smell makes you embarrassed? It’s true, dogs can be smelly, sometimes very smelly. Are you wondering how you could make your dog smell better? Here are 6 ways to make your dog smell better. A dog’s skin is filled with glands which excrete liquids. Those are meant to protect the dog’s skin. The composition of these liquids is the reason why your dog smells. As the fur gets wet, more particles are spilled out and the unpleasant smell increases.
How to fight dog smell:
1. Avoid low-quality food
A balanced diet affects your dog’s smell. Less low-quality food, more raw meat, fruits and vegetables added to your dog’s daily meal along with some fresh parsley, all help to the neutralize your dog’s smell.
2. Do regular grooming
During the course of the day, many dirt particles can find their way into your dog’s coat. Try to brush the dirt out of the coat to avoid unpleasant odours and manage his excessive shedding.
3. Wash his beddings regularly
4. Brush his teeth!
5. Use baking powder as natural dry shampoo
6. Clean his ears
Dirt in the ears can lead to unpleasant odours. Because the dog is unable to clean his ears alone, it’s your task to do it. Use a soft cloth or a towel and do it very gently in order to avoid unwanted irritation.
Regular baths and these extra cares will make your dog smell better everyday!
