When Brandy (RIP) would "snoodle" in something stinky (start at the nose and rub to the ear), I would put her in the kitchen chair and use a wet towel with doggie shampoo and scrub and rince until it was gone. However, when it came to turkey poo it seemed like no matter how much I washed, the smell would still linger for a few hours after. Several times, I was tempted to spray her with Febreeze. I didn't though, but, boy, I was tempted.

What do you do about cleaning your dog up without bathing them?
Clean??? This is a joke right?! I'm not even sure what color Bentley really is

If muddy I hose Buudy down than use a force dryer to dry him

If smelly from rolling in muck I wash the yucky areas than force dry him

If he is wet from rain or snow I towel dry him

If he is soaked I force dry the wettest areas than towel him the rest of the way

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Brew gets a towel dry, and most of the dirt just falls off as he dries. I don't like the dog wipes at all I find they leave a film on the coat and it makes the dogs feel oily, Yeah they smell good, but if you pet your dog after then rub your hands in your hair you've transfered the oil to yourself! I hate that!!!

Towel dry, brushing daily and a bath once every couple months.

I do wash Rose's towels in her shampoo and do not use any softener when drying them. She has five EXTRA HUGE towels.
