Q: How do you get rid of german shepherd odor?
Our two year old german shepherd has a really bad odor. It smells like he's been rolling around in poop all day. It's coming from his coat. It stays on your hands after you pet him too. Is there anything we can do to get him smelling better???

Don't bathe him too often- it dries out their skin and washes out their natural body oil.
Instead, brush him regularly and feed him a high quality diet. My dog eats raw and she smells fantastic.
What do you feed? Some good foods are:

i have german shepherds to. I use shampoo for the hydrobath. You only need to wash him when he gets really dirty to. I only wash mine about every 2 months.
Also brush them every day so when they are malting the fur and dirt wont stay in their coat. The food shouldnt really matter, only if he isnt eatin it. If you dont have a hyudrobath then just wet the fur (warm water better) rub in a small bit of the shampoo (the same amount you would put in your hair) and rinse it out thoroughly. Avoid washing the face and dont get it on his eyes! if his face is dirty wipe it with a damp cloth with NO soap or shampoo.
WORKS FOR ME!!!

try to wash him, to the end of the wash make sure he if fully dry which will prevent the smell. also there is a doggy perfume you can buy from any pet store. just make sure you only use the one for dogs no other which can cause drying of the dogs skin.

Give him a bath and watch where he goes during the day – it sounds like he found something he likes rolling in and believe me they find the rankest stuff to roll around in. I'd recommend a heavy duty dog shampoo. You may have to shampoo and rinse a few times but it should help with the smell. They also make stuff you can spray on them after the bath to make them smell better.
