Why does my dog stink after a bath?
It is not uncommon for dogs to become very clean after bathing, however some dogs stink to high heaven. Why do they stink?
You might think your dog could have an underlying medical condition. But it’s often a sign that your dog just needs to eat better or get more exercise.
If you really want to know why your dog stinks after a bath, read on.
Barking is often a sign of stress and anxiety and the stench of a dog that has just bathed will often be accompanied by barking.
Here are four reasons your dog might stink after a bath.
Barking because of anxiety
Dogs who live in kennels or small houses in the same room as their owners are more prone to barking than dogs who live in a house on their own.
A dog who spends a lot of time alone, especially when it is dark, might start barking. And if your dog lives with other dogs and often gets startled, it can easily start barking.
Why does a dog bark?
Barking is a protective behaviour. Barking often starts when you or someone else makes noise close to the dog’s home.
It’s almost a reflex. But if your dog is barking a lot, it could be that it’s anxious.
So how do you stop your dog barking?
If you have a small dog, there’s nothing you can do about the loud barking. But if you have a larger dog, you can teach it a few ‘noise-controllers’.
You can start by getting down on all fours in front of your dog and playing peek-a-boo.
Your dog will quickly learn to love you. And when he sees you, he will quickly learn that this is a good game.
Then show him a toy. Don’t let your dog take it away from you, but let him see the toy in your hand.
Start by showing him that you aren’t angry when he tries to steal it away. Let him see that you’re only angry when you are actually being attacked.
Then you can let him have the toy if he wants it. Always reward your dog for good behaviour.
It’s important that you always reward your dog for good behaviour. If your dog gets a treat, he will soon learn to do something for you in return.
So your dog will start barking less and less often.
Does this work?
We always recommend giving your dog treats when it’s barking. There are even dog biscuits which are specifically designed to be healthy treats that your dog can have while being happy to bark.
But when a dog is bark-free, treats can become a little too effective. A dog will soon learn that a lot of barking gets you treats.
When your dog can be bark-free, he won’t need a lot of treats to tell him that he can get a lot of treats.
But once your dog has been consistently bark-free, you will need to use a dog training collar.
The bark collar has an alarm mechanism in it. So the sound of your dog barking causes the collar to vibrate and your dog will get an electric shock in response.
The bark collar can be a helpful dog training tool. It’s a humane way to teach your dog to stop barking.
In this article, we’ve shown you some of the reasons why your dog may be barking. We’ve also shown you how to stop your dog barking.

I agree. And I’m not surprised to learn that more dogs are actually brought to veterinary clinics for barking. If you have a family dog, it is important to teach your dog to stop barking so that they don’t attract other dogs or bother other people.

There are many different ways of stopping a dog from barking. Of course, you can punish your dog for barking.
But one of the better ways is using a training collar. This is a device that shocks the dog when they bark. The shock helps them realize the consequences of barking. Of course, it is cruel. I’ve seen dog owners use this, and I have many friends who have tried to use it.
But it’s a humane way to stop a dog from barking. They will learn that they shouldn’t bark. I do not condone this type of training collar because it’s cruel.
If you have a problem with your dog barking, it’s important to treat it as a mental illness. You need to treat it like you would a person with a mental illness. In other words, it’s important to get help from professionals.

I’m glad you brought up this point. One of the worst things we can do is to punish our pets for misbehaving. When we punish our pets, it’s not something that they will ever forget. And it’s not something that you can do again. You are setting yourself up for failure.
I’m sorry to say that this is one of the biggest mistakes that many pet owners make. And the dogs, of course, are the most affected.
My point is that it’s important to understand that dogs have the capacity to remember things. It’s important to realize that we can’t be around all the time.
