    My dog is getting into something outside, how do i make her stop?  She smells BAD!!!!

    For some reason my dog is finding something in the yard that smells like poop and is bathing herself in it every day. We clean her up then, a few hours later she goes and does it agian.  How do we make her stop?

    Maybe the FIRST thing you should be doing is cleaning up your yard.  It's on your property and you have NO IDEA what she is getting into?  Sounds like you need to take a more active interest in your the VERY LEAST for your animal's health and well-being.

    Like many other predators, dogs roll in strong smelling substances to disguise their scent. It's not likely that she can be trained not to do this. However, you might be able to curb the behavior a little by providing her with a more pleasant scent -- a little perfume, rubbed into her fur. Use common sense, of course, in applying it -- don't get it near her eyes, mouth, nose or genitals, or use so much that she'd get sick from ingesting it if she licks it off.

    You can buy perfumes designed especially for dogs with odor issues, but it's not really necessary, so long as you take common sense precautions with what you apply.

    This is not a guaranteed fix, but it helps in some cases.

    From my experience you can't, unless of course you keep your dog inside 24/7.

    My terrier does this too. She finds the best rodent poop she can find and gives herself a nice dose of perfume. Lately, it's been nice and wet on top of it because we've had so much rain. It is strong smelling stuff that's for sure, and a little disgusting afer awhile. But this is what terriers do, they like to mask their own scent for hunting purposes, and from my sensory perception it works because she doesn't smell like my dog any more.

    Bathing or dusting her with baking soda and then brushing it out of her coat after it absorbs the oils, is the only thing I've found that really take the smell out. But, like you said, they turn around and do it all over again.
