put a few drops of any sweet-smelling essential oil (citrus, evergreens, florals, etc) in a spray bottle with water, shake it up thoroughly and spritz a little on him. Try a small amount first to make sure it's not irritating. EO's in large amounts can be irritating or toxic, so SMALL amount is key here!

Bad odor and itchy skin can be caused by allergies also- many "sensitive" dogs are actually suffering from food or environmental allergies. You might look into a hypoallergenic diet and see if he improves.

The first post said this, but maybe the first and most easy thing to start with would be a change of diet. I brought home a smnall westie mix that had bad skin and smelled bad, but was helped with a diet switch. Paw mail me is you want more details.

I personally love using PETfection Sprays. They have a Deodorizer/Allergy one and a couple cologne ones. All are 100% Natural and Organic. I find them to have great smells and work well! Plus for a sensitive dog they are non-irritating. Hope this helps.
