I am keeping 2 dachshunds for my mother in law so I do not know anything about them. They stay outside allday, but at night we bring them inside and put them inside a kennel. My questions is that the female (black short hair) stinks so bad that I cannot stand for her to be in my house. We have bathed her, but within a few hours she smells like a wet dog that has been in the hot sun for days. The odor is gagging!!! Them male (brown short hair) does not have this problem. Does anybody know what I can do to get rid of this doggie body odor?
Personally, I would suspect something more serious than "body odor". I would check to see if her teeth were bad, first of all. Decaying teeth can be very smelly. Ear infections can also have a very bad smell.
A trip to the vet to determine the root of the odor is definitely in order...
Along with the suggestions of the other poster it could also be her anal glands, they may need expressing. Definitely a vet visit is in order and the sooner the better. If it is teeth, ears or anal glands they will NOT get better on their own.
