I have a 6 month old miniature dachshund, I love him to death, but my God does he smell horrible. Everything about him stinks. His body, his breath and it doesn't matter what I do. I gave him a bath yesterday and sprayed doggy cologne on him and brushed his teeth, and today he wreaks to high heaven again. He is an indoor only dog so I don't understand why this keeps happening. Does anyone else have a dachshund or a dog with the similar problem? and what do you do to maintain the stench? Is this problem just hereditary to the dachshund bloodline? Any answers oe solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated.
oh and before anyone goes spouting off with negative comments about my dog, he eats science diet puppy formula with the occasional treat or rawhide and like stated gets baths and his teeth brushed at least 3 times weekly.
Bonnie L you are extremely rude. Please educate yourself before you respond to people's questions. if you can't contribute KNOWLEDGEABLE answers to serious questions you should keep your mouth shut and for your information there is such thing as mini doxies here is a website in which AKC acknowledges the breed http://www.akc.org/breeds/dachshund/index.cfm THANK YOU.
I see many other comments you have left for people where you come off as just plain miserable, so you have been blocked from answering anymore of mine, anything else from you will be reported. And as for the crap food comment, I feed him science diet because it's what MY VET recommended and was bought from his office. I simply asked this question to see if it was a dachshund trait, seeing as this is my first doxie! So maybe you should quit trolling people's questions and go get some sunlight, it might do you some good!!
Thanks to everyone else who had respectful answers....
