It could be that they roled or stepped in urine and just need a bath. It may also be that they are wetting themselves. This could be caused by UTI or other health issues. Check their bed for wet spots.

Your dog might have stepped in urine or just needs a bath :)

Your pup could have run into a stray or neighborhood cat while playing in the backyard and maybe the cat peed on him/her...which I've never personally seen, but definitely possible. Your pup also could have just rolled in fresh cat pee. Regardless of the cause, the answer is a bath!

Can you provide more details of the timeline of your concern? Is this a sudden change? One time issue? Ongoing?

And, laughably, I must also ask if you own cats. Haha.

Free-range cats can be quite adept at entering your yard and leaving trails, so that is also a possibility that comes to mind.
