    What do they smell like. Are they just getting into stuff. Or maybe it is a.nal glands. They can often cause an odor if they need to be expressed.

    I don't know what could be going on. My Yorkies don't have an odor problem except for my husbands baby. She has a lot of eye drainage and when it gets time for a bath her face smells bad from the drainage.

    food, would also be something to look into, apart from regular bathing there are natural doggie deodorants available that don't dry out the skin, which is something you need to be careful of with regular bathing.

    What are their ages, and how often are you bathing them at the moment and with what?

    Bo Dereks Shampoo and Conditioner for Special Dogs. Yummy smelling, gentle.
    There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    I personally don't feel that is has much to do with what shampoo your using.. But yorkies tend to get food and other stiff in their little beards and so their faces get stinky. Using a baby wipe to wash their face daily helps.

    My yorkie doesn't stink at all unless she gets food on her face. I use groomers edge when I bathe her and I also keep her in a shorter cut.

    Greasy? LOL. My Yorkies smell great. Seriously. And their hair is not greasy.

    Yours might need their a.nal glands expressed. Do they scoot their butts on the ground? Any skin irritations? Is it their breath that stinks? If it's breath, it could be an infected tooth or gum problem.

    I've heard people mention that before. My breeder said that you have to wash the yorkie more often than most dogs??? She said once a week, I do and I have not had a problem. Food hanging from the beard that I did not get to once in awhile, I've experienced. Also infected ears can leave off a terrible odor.
