I swear that my dog gives off a smell when she's nervous/scared . . . am I nuts?
It's possible! When some dogs get nervous it causes their anal glands to release. It gives off a very strong musky fishy smell.
Its probably anal glands as Giny said, Just make sure you dont get too close when she squirts them =P
It's very possible. We had a dog that did the same thing. I never did find out what did it, but the anal gland theory sounds good
yup, more often then not its her anal glands..
she MAY need them "expressed" I suggest taking her to the vet for that.. its VERY stinky!
