My dog does the exact same thing. He will roll in anything that I generally think smells terrible. To him, this masks his scent and is instinctive to cover himself and hide his scent. He may also think it smells good like how we find various floral and amber tones to smell great.

We may think it smells gross - but dogs have such sensitive noses, they may think poo smells good! they're rolling in what smells like perfume to them - espescially after baths strip them of their natural doggy musk
