I had read on one of the breeders websites (can't remember which one) before getting Betty that as well as being low moulting/shedding Cockapoo's were also mean't to have no/low doggy odour. This is certainly not true of Betty as despite a couple of bath's with shampoo given to us by the breeder ( she is also a groomer) Betty is cetainly quite wiffy!!
Just wondered what was the norm out there??:confused:

Maisie doesn't smell at all. Do you know where the odour is coming from? Maybe an infection of some sort - ears for example?

Can't seem to find it available in the UK :( Might have to bring some back when we visit the USA next month!

Doesn't seem to come from anywhere specific. She just has a very 'wet dog'
smell even when she is dry. She has smelled like it from day one but put it down to the number of dogs the breeder had. I have given her at least three bath's since then. I have diluted the shampoo 1/10 parts as instructed but perhaps she needs something a bit stonger but know you shouldn't have anything too strong as can strip their natural oils.

Tropiclean shampoo, conditioner and tangle remover (which doesn't need rinsing off) are popular with owners on here.

And they make the dog smell delicious!! :)

Where do you get it from? I don't think my local shops sell it and I couldn't find it on Pet Planet.

Do I need to use a puppy shampoo? Lolly is 5 months and I bought a normal puppy shampoo but it doesn't have a particularly nice fragrance so want to buy a Tropiclean shampoo. Just wondering at what age everyone stopped using puppy shampoo.

Has anyone noticed less odour after switching to NI? I wondered if diet affected it at all. Dylan has no odour apart from when he bathes in stagnant water or rolls in fox poo :rolleyes:

what is she fed on ?


Delta was bad for constantly having pee on her legs but when she squats she presses her thighs to the ground so quite often when she was a pup she would cover herself in pee. not a problem now. my lot are a bit stinky just now but they go over the Fields and swimming in the luggie which isn't the cleanest water but isn't the dirtiest.


does her bedding smell, have you washed it after washing her.

i think all dogs have some sort of smell it isn't normally that bad.

Took the words right out of my mouth :D

Millie did start to smell a bit 'doggy', which was a disappointment as we wanted a low odour dog.

But hey, guess what - when we changed her food to NI, the smell most definitely went and her coat improved too. Doh!, yet another thread bought back to NI, its like :deadhorse:, lol, sorry been dyeing to use that one! :D

You are right she shouldn't smell doggy...maybe you should check ears, diet and possibly anal glands (but she is young for those to be blocked I think).

She is currently on James well beloved puppy which she has been on since the breeder. She has had a bit of a runny tummy in the afternoons so not sure what is to blame
