What dogs encounter outside can cling to their skin and fur which can cause an unpleasant smell. Also dogs don't sweat like we do. They sweat through there paws and slightly through there hair follicles. You may notice when your dog comes back inside in the summer he probably smells worse than in the winter. You might notice that your dogs feet smell bad too. This is due to normal bacteria found on there feet. Bathing and grooming and keeping your dog inside will help with the smell.
