Any pet shampoo made just for pets will do the job. There are many different kinds, scents, hypoallergenic, tearless, etc. Just pick the one you prefer for him. If you dry him with a blow dryer immediately, you will eliminate as much chance for him smelling again in a few days. The faster you get a dog dry, the longer the clean smell lasts. No matter how clean or fast you get him dry, chances are you will be lucky to get a week out of it, because they are dogs. :) Imagine what we would smell like after 3 days of running around outside barefooted with no showers? LOL

When washing his head, I recommend you do it first, because if you do it last, you will be rinsing all the shampoo over an already rinsed dog. Use a tearless shampoo, and scrub him up. You are just going to have to make him stand sideways in the tub for that part, even if you have to be holding/pushing his head that way for the entire face. I can't see any other way around it. Teach him to stand sideways in the tub, and when he turns, just turn him back and tell him stay..If you do that enough, he will get the drift.

I never squirt ear cleaner down the ear canal. I simply use a cotton ball, moistened well with cleaner, and wipe out what I can reach with my fingers. I just don't like the idea of squirting anything inside an ear..Talk about aggravating for the dog. A dog without ear problems needs nothing more than a wipe out. And when you are brushing his teeth, stand over top of him, and brush the other side from behind him. That way you are more comfortable using your right hand. Good luck tomorrow.
