The most mine get bathed is every other week and those are the ones that are being shown the others get a bath about every 6-8 weeks or if they are dirty .... RC does contain a lot of fillers which may cause allergies

Did you try Fromm four star nutritionals gran free? Acana regionals grain free? Ziwipeak? She should be able to eat all of those without a problem. If she is picky, it isn't because the kibbles are too big.

Royal canin is not a great food, despite what vets say. Look at http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com at the reviews. Go for a minimum of 4 star food, higher is better.

if she is smelling doggy could be very much her diet, I know when I tried kibble(arden grange) with noah he started to get that doggy smell but practically has no odor on raw or ziwipeak.
Have you ever tried fish/salmon oil? if your pup likes that can be very effective on squirting a bit of that on food to encourage them to gobble it up, I tend to use it on medicine/newfood that noah doesn't particular like.

I probably bath too often but I've noticed no ill effects, when I do it's not usually all over, mainly legs as especially around this time of year the mud is like black slime! I use the animology shampoo and conditoner makes him really lovely & soft.

I think I'll go to my local pet shop after Xmas and try her on something else. I've just given her another bath. I will hold off now till the new year! I didn't realise food makes a difference to smell! X

Of course, beauty comes from within. A dog that eats a healthy diet will glow
on the outside, shiny/silky coat, pearly white teeth, no odor, bright eyes, etc.

Get him some chewies such as bully sticks, deer antlers, or a raw bone (not cooked.) I brush Jaxx's teeth about once a week, although I should do it more but after I started making sure he always had chewies that he liked his breath no longer has a smell. I think switching to Ziwipeak food has also helped his breath though too.
