Giant Schnoodle - HELP - any Schnauzer tricks?!
I'm owned by a magnificent Giant Schnoodle, "Rocky," who is remarkably intelligent, social, appropriately vigilant, and well-tempered.
My only gripes are that he compulsively itches and licks (grooms) himself. I've tried every quality canine shampoo imaginable to help bring relief without success, as recommended by my vet and groomer, and various consultants at pet stores.
And, within one day of thoroughly washing his beard and moustache with the same shampoos, the combination of saliva, water, and food create a foul smell that permeates the house. Although he doesn't shed and is the best dog I've ever had, I get stressed seeing him uncomfortable and my lady-friend can't stand his smell.
Any Schnauzer/Poodle tricks, remedies, or ideas on how I can provide him and myself relief? Many thanks!
