Does my Newfoundland stink?

I don’t think they will, but if you ask a stranger, they may think it’s the smell of Newfoundland. Personally, I don’t think Newfoundland dogs will smell worse than other breeds if they are properly cared for.

Does Newfoundland stink more easily than other dogs?

Yes, usually because Newfoundland’s coat is airtight. Because Newfoundland has a thick double layer of hair, you need to comb Newfoundland regularly. Your regular brushing of Newfoundland will help remove debris from their coats and prevent mats from falling off. An unguarded coat smells bad and can cause skin infections. Newfoundland can help a lot by thoroughly drying their fur in the water or after a bath with a dog dryer.
Be sure to clean areas prone to urine leakage, such as the abdomen and hind legs.

The reason why Newfoundland dogs smell

(1) Skin infections in Newfoundland
Newborn Newfoundland is prone to hot spots and other skin infections, resulting in bad smell. Seasonal allergies or food allergies can lead to skin inflammation, resulting in excessive oil secretion by some glands of the skin, resulting in moldy taste.
(2) Newfoundland’s diet
Bad diet can cause this, and it can also be the cause of other problems, including yeast infection, which can also give off an odor. You must pay attention to the claws of your new Newfoundland, which is a place prone to yeast infection.
(3) Dental problems in Newfoundland
Plaque and tartar build up on new foundland’s teeth, creating a bad smell. Tooth abscesses in Newfoundland smell bad and cause a lot of pain. Check your Newfoundland mouth regularly and always make sure they eat right.
(4) Ear infections in Newfoundland
There are many kinds of bacteria and yeasts can cause ear infections, and a new big ear, heavy, prone to this infection. A healthy ear usually has a good defense against bacteria, but if the dog has allergies or hormonal imbalances, yeast and bacteria can increase dramatically, leading to a bad smell. In fact, Newfoundland’s love of water also makes them prone to persistent ear problems unless the ears remain clean and dry. Be sure to check your Newfoundland ears regularly for redness, swelling or secretions. Be sure to dry them after swimming. You can also ask your veterinarian for a good, safe ear cleaner.

(5) Anal sac in Newfoundland
All dogs have two small smell sacs on their buttocks. These sacs are a marker gland, which is why dogs smell other dogs’ buttocks when they meet. Sometimes these glands leak, they get on the fur of Newfoundland, or worse, they get on your furniture. Another sign that your dog’s anal glands may be a problem is if they are moving or dragging their buttocks on the floor. Some dogs cannot express their anal glands or they become affected, so veterinarians need to do so.
(6) Drooling
Drooling Newfoundland and Newfoundland usually build up saliva on their chest, chin and forelegs. If you don’t wash Newfoundland regularly, it will drool and may start to sour. Newfoundland’s drooling bibs and frequent wiping of heavily drooling areas can help control the odor.
(7) Fart
There are more farts in Newfoundland than other dogs. Those farts stink! If your Newfoundland is passing gas over normal, has diarrhea and is not eating, you should consult your veterinarian. Excessive gas may be caused by the dog’s diet or gastrointestinal problems. Buy a Newfoundland.

How to prevent the smell of Newfoundland?

Any breed with a hairy face and big eyes stinks. I can smell some unique smell of Newfoundland in the lab, very unique, even worse after swimming. Food usually doesn’t taste very good, probably because all the fur and many seem to have skin problems. Don’t ignore Newfoundland, and don’t try to cover it up. This odor may be a sign of some health problems that need to be addressed, such as hypothyroidism, which may lead to increased susceptibility to skin and ear infections. If you smell your Newfoundland odor, but you can’t find the source of the odor, talk to your veterinarian.
