I know it's early for me to tell but so far the yorkie is soooo easy to groom. She dries quicker and combs out easy , no matts! Down side is yorkies do smell like a dog and they have an oily look to their hair after a few days and the malts of course do not. I think Bentley's hair is much softer too. So far so good.

I have noticed that about my maltese that she never really smells bad. Not like my other dogs. She smells like grass more!! She loves to roll around.

:D

Tiki usual smells like ..... yucky worms!


I don't know about your little ones, but Tiki must run into the yard and roll in worms as soon as I am done grooming him! He also likes to searach out any animal smell (ie cats) and get into that


It is way to cute!

I am very happy that he never smells of dog though.

I have a Shih-Poo who has very "maltese like" hair. All white kind of "people hair" that doesn't get oily and hangs straight and full and a little fluffy and people are always shocked that he smells so good! THey say "Why doesn't he smell like a dog?" and I say cuz he's NOT a DOG! LOL he's my son! I even carry pictures of him in my purse and if people ask if I have kids I say, yep I have a seven year old and I show his pic!

Okay guys, need advice on what kind of shampoo/conditioner, brushes, combs and grooming products to buy for my baby who is coming home in May. I think I like the brushes and combs by #1 All Systems - does anyone use or have any suggestions. What do you use for the tear staining?

I love the way my Maxi smells, especially after i bathe him and after he gets groomed, he just has a nice scent people always comment how nice he smells
in any event we have to treat these babies like they were human and they shouldnt go without being clean....My Baby thank god was blessed so far without any stains on his eyes or paws, i think it helps with the bottled water i give him and i always try and keep his face dry
i just think some who have the stains that its hereditary

Update on yorkie smell. Ok, I have had Mia since Oct and she is now 10 months old. I'm happy to say that since she has matured that she really doesn't have an unpleasant doggie odor. She does have a different scent than Bentley but not really a doggie smell. Yorkies also don't have fur, it's hair and even feels more hair like texture than my malt.

Beagles DEFINITELY have a doggie odor! I fostered one awhile back, and she would get pretty rank!

I think a lot of the less allergenic breeds, like Maltese, bichons, poodles, etc., don't tend to smell as doggy.

Well, I dont' have a purebred beagle, but I have a springer spaniel/beagle mix and he definatley smells like a dog. Bailey, my Yorkie, doesn't and neither does Morgan.

Another toy breed that has no 'doggie odor' are toy poodles. My friend has one and went 2 weeks w/out a bath and no odor at all! I've heard both about yorkies talking w/ different people. But I notice that they do get slightly oily looking and i've seen one w/ dandruff. But who cares too much, they're all so darn cute!!

thats so funny you're talking about doggy smell. my mom, sister, and i were talking about how all three of our dogs dont have that smell. we didnt groom gruffi in 3 months (because we just moved, we couldnt find the attachment for the shower, and we dont wash our dogs outside) and he didnt have that smell. on the other hand--my cousin has a jack russel and the dog smells HORRIBLE. and gets groomed every 3 weeks. my mom thinks its because our dogs are on human food. i dont know though.

we still havent found the shower attachment. we spent an hour in the bathroom last week filling up cups of water and pouring it on him. i felt soo bad.

Speaking of doggie smell, my brother has 2 Rotties and his house SMELLS BAAAD....even bad enough that when I got home I smelled it on myself, and he bathes his dogs on a regular basis. I have an Irish Setter, I bathe her once a month, or every 2 weeks (in the summer) and she gets brushed once a week and she doesn't seem to smell, not that I can tell anyway. She does shed a bit, but I can't smell a big difference between her and my Maltese....

That's one of my favorite things about having a Maltese, he doesn't smell like a dog. Even after he's been rolling in the grass and walking outside he still doesn't really stink. I'm glad too because I wouldn't want a stinky dog sleeping in my bed :lol: Of course it helps that he gets a bath once a week
