I’m with my friend’s brother for a week and they have this dog which is cute and friendly and well trained…

but really damn stinky. It’s like you smell it before you hear or see it. If I was super close I’d tell him to wash his damn dog - but It’s not my house or place - and I can’t ask my friend to… she and her bro have a difficult relationship. How would you handle this?

If the dog is really bothering you that much, either offer to take him for a walk...and "accidentally" take him to a groomer for a bath...OR just tell your friend the smell is overwhelming to you, and go to a hotel.

Offer to take the dog out for a walk - and make sure you go near a lake!

TAke that mofo and wash him till he smells like a freshly blooming flower. Don't ask just do. Everybody will thank you.
GeniUs · 56-60, M
@accidentprone Yeah but he has 'the stink of ages' on him, fresh stink does not smell so bad.

@Jennster OK, if you say so, but dogs do not like to be clean.
@accidentprone Cleaning them with shampoo intended for humans is part of this.

I love dogs, but they are very stinky. I feel like I have to wash my hands after petting one.

Cats on the other hand clean themselves and I do not feel like I have to wash my hands after handling them.
@accidentprone Lol Cats "clean" themselves with their spit and their sandpaper-esque tongue...and clean their asses.

Happy petting! lol
Take the dog into the shower with you. Don't say anything or draw attention to it, just do it.

@UnderLockDown it’s a Golden retriever -
@Jennster He'll probably have no issue with water, lather him up, just make sure to rinse well, leaving soap is bad for his skin.
You could just say to the brother, "Look this is totally me, not your sister, so I want to get that out there. I really like your dog--he's(?) really a particularly great dog. But--and I don't want to offend you--maybe you've become used to it...your really wonderful dog smells really NOT wonderful. So bad that his stink precedes him. I would be happy to wash him for you and not make this more work for you. Would you let me do this for you and your great dog?"

@Jennster simple answer givie it a bath or shower it is not the poor dogs fault at the end of the day it is the master who is neglecting the pooch and hygiene

A dog has exactly 7 jobs:

Eat
Sleep
Pee
Poop
Bark at nothing
Wiggle its butt
Stink

RedBaron · M
@Jennster Why? It’s true.

Its better for the dog to have good hygiene,i dont see a problem telling them
MrAverage1965 · 61-69, M
I would probably find an excuse and leave
LandOfOz · 61-69, M
Go homme or offer tò wash it yourself
Bang5luts · M

Jennster · 18-21, F

Jennster · 18-21, F
@NinaTina Maybe I should - I’m really bad with confrontation
Jennster · 18-21, F
@NinaTina Why can’t they just have a cute cat or something
