There are various reasons that your dog smells bad. It could be an ear infection, skin condition, lack of grooming, or dental issues. But if your pooch has a clean health bill from the vet and gets regular grooming sessions, yet, still smells foul, then you might be strangely sensitive to your pet’s natural odor.
