The 10 Smelliest Dog Breeds

While all dogs stink from time to time and if not groomed regularly, some seem to carry a stronger smell than others. This “dog smell” is most often attributed to gland secretions that are heavier in some breeds than others, but can also be caused by allergies and infections. It’s important to keep in mind that basic care will prevent dogs from being overly stinky, but be prepared for a little extra doggie odor if you decide to bring home one of these breeds.
