Our puppy had been rolling around in piss with his brother when we went to picked him up and he smelt rank, not a great home coming but he went straight in the bath.

Has puppy been for his vet check up with you yet? - very smelly dogs can have serious underlying health problems, so I would definitely raise it with the vet.

Is puppy on a poor quality food? - lots of dogs smell distinctly "doggy" if they are on poor quality food or the food isn't agreeing with them.

What did you bath puppy with?

I disagree that puppies smell any more or less than they will as an adult dog, so long as they aren't dirty (obviously it's easier for a puppy to accidentally get wee and poo on themselves).

If the dogs stuff is in a warm room then it will smell distinctly "doggy" - especially as now there are two dogs not one!

I think I’m just not enjoying the smell - it’s a normal puppy smell. I don’t remember this with the last dog but then I had small children at the time and our kitchen now has an Aga which perhaps enhances the smell 😵😆😁

Puppies just stink a bit unfortunately. You either love the smell or hate it!

My puppy stank but was fine after a shampoo. What is the smell like?

Sounds like more than puppy smell, puppies smell gorgeous and shouldn't stink your house out. Can you describe the smell?

We've had our gorgeous puppy for about 10 days now and loving it! However, the smell in our kitchen is awful. I've washed his bedding, regularly clean the kitchen floor, lit scented candles, opened the windows and have bathed the puppy but to no avail. We have another dog and he definitely isn't contributing to the smell. Anyone else had this puppy smell? When will it go? What's causing it? Is it just "puppy" and it will get better?
