Q: I have a Siberian Husky and he smells very dog-like, how do I eliminate this odor?
I have read that Siberian Huskies are low odor dogs but my 2 month old husky smells. And oh yeah, I've been giving him a bath 2 times a week.

Look for a odor shampoo, like a skunk odor shampoo or something like that. A strong odor shampoo.

Bathing a dog twice a week destroys the natural oils in their coat and skin — no wonder your poor dog smells, his coat and skin aren't functioning like they should.
Siberians are generally very low odor dogs…have you talked to your breeder about the problem? A responsible breeder can provide plenty of information.
He may continue to smell "doggy" until he gets his adult coat next year. Bathing him often WON'T help, and will only make matters worse. I have Siberians who go their entire (14+ year) lives without a bath. If you can't deal with his current odor, buy a dog-odor spray at the pet store and spritz him with it.

the best thing ever for keeping your dog smelling fresh between baths is teatree oil. just dab it on a cotton ball and lightly rub it over his/her coat every couple of days! it is also really good for cleaning tough dirt off your dogs at bath time (my dogs get tree sap on their coats all the time when they are outside and the teatree oil just brings it right off)! hope this helps!

Our pooch got skunked the other morning, and I was at our local pet store when it opened for a remedy. They recommended Stinky Dog http://amzn.to/1yaWnuq, and it worked quite well on that, so I'm sure it would be good for lesser stinks as well. For skunk, I'd recommend sopping up as much of the spray as possible with paper towel, then using Stinky Dog shampoo.

The Stinky Dog shampoo is good because it does get rid of the stinky dog smell. The only thing is it doesn't really have any fragrance so after a bath the dog doesn't really smell fresh. In fact the dog smelled like wet dog until he was completely dry. I wasn't that I didn't use enough, in fact I used about one-third of the bottle to be sure I didn't skimp to really get the dog clean. I actually used Bobbi Panter's Natural Moisturizing Dog Shampoo http://amzn.to/1CVo109 which I think works great and leaves poochie smelling great.
