    One stinking dog

    Our Labrador is a smart, sweet dog until she goes the farm. Then she finds the stinkiest damn thing available and rolls in it and comes back all proud of herself. Since we have cows, that usually means cow manure in various consistencies. Today it was apparently just old enough to have developed a good ripe odor. Since it's been raining, it was also very liquid. I could smell her from 30 feet away and my nose isn't that good!

    Hosing her off was only good enough for a ride in the back of the truck. One shampoo got her in the basement but only temporarily. Another shampoo with vinegar cut most of the stink. The rest will have to wear off. . .

    She's going to be left home unless I can convince her that stinky isn't better. She will be a sad dog but I don't need to spend an hour grooming a dog after working! If anyone has any suggestions, I'll take them.

    Unfortunately it's natural for a dog to want to try and mask their scent, as they are predatory animals (wolves). The closer the breed of dog is to their cousin, the higher the tendency especially if they are bathed regularly. Dogs would rather smell like a dog, not bouquet of flowers.

    Good explanation. I thought it was just part of a dog's job description. Our lab, Stella rolls and will eat most anything of that sort. So much for the 'quality' dog food we buy her.

    Get a few bottles of hydrogen peroxide to take with you on your next trip to the farm. Mix with Dawn dishwashing soap, and you should find that your four legged buddy will smell much better after his bath!

    Hydrogen peroxide will neutralize the odor very effectively. The Dawn will cut through the embedded cow poop with a little elbow grease. It may take a second application, but this works even on skunk spray.

    And yes, I've had my share of opportunities to use this mixture on my three labs as well as on several of my family's dogs. Good luck!

    Thanks for the replies

    I know she's just following her instinct but was hoping someone had a trick to get her to stop. I've used the Dawn and peroxide on skunk and you are right, it's pretty effective. I don't mind a dog smelling like a dog but draw the line when she smells like a walking manure pit. Thank God we no longer have hogs. I can only imagine what she would do with pig manure!

    Oh well, back to the real world and job today although if I can get off early enough I'll cut some hay this afternoon/tonight. There's a slight chance of getting it up without it being rained on before Thursday rains.

    We've used Natures Miracle from TSC when one of ours got into a fight with a skunk. It worked really well for that, might be worth a shot for manure stink also.

    I know from house training many dogs that Natures Miracle is the only thing that works. Well worth the price.
