If your corkie stinks and seems to be everywhere, there may be something wrong with their skin or fur. This is usually due to a lack of proper grooming, although other problems, such as poor diet, may also be a factor. But before you investigate further, do a quick scan of your puppies to make sure they don’t simply roll in or eat faeces, urine or dead animals. Dogs are dogs after all. If you can confirm that this is not the problem, you may need to reassess your dressing habits.

When corkie bedding occurs, a lack of air circulation and oil distribution can lead to moldy odors, which can make your dog stink. In addition to brushing corkie’s teeth regularly, it’s also important to wash the dog’s hair. Corkie should take a bath every three weeks to remove accumulated oil, dust and other debris. If you have a naughty puppy who likes to get into trouble, it’s acceptable to bathe more often, but bathing too often can dry the skin, lead to infection and bad smell. What you bathe your dog is as important as how often you do it. Human soaps and shampoos, as well as cheap dog shampoos, contain irritating chemicals that irritate sensitive dogs.
