Boy puppies

I have wanted to ask this question for about 6 weeks but for some reason can't. I don't even know how to describe it. Here goes.... Hendrix smells like pee ALL THE TIME! Well not all of him but when I pick him up and turn him over. The problem is that little string of hair on his little "thingy". It gets wet when he goes and stays wet until we bathe him. This is only my second puppy in life and the girl never had this problem. So what I want to know is, are we supposed to cut that string of hair? Like the sani-cut on his butt? Or is the answer to wipe him each time he pees? And if we wipe, how do we avoid irritating that sensitive area? I've never felt so dumb as I do right now.

Carefully trim the long hairs, that will help. My boys have always had the hair on their tummy and bottom sani trimmed and Iíve never noticed a pee smell.

I haven't noticed that problem with Scout. The groomer lightly shaves his underside and that area which I'm sure helps. Occasionally I clean that area off with Pure paws no rinse shampoo. 😉

Some boys get pee on the insides of their legs so some people leave a "wick" (which is what you are describing) Kodi has never gotten pee on the insides of his legs, and the wick gets stained and yucky. So I keep his trimmed short. You can try it both ways and see what works best for you.

Yes!!! It's easy to give them "razor burn" on those tender little parts!

Thanks everyone! I'm going to clean with the no-rinse shampoo until his next grooming appointment and then turn the "wickumcision" over to the professionals

It's the opposite for me. Link (boy with uncut wick) never smells, it is Zelda (girl) who'd get pee all over her inside thighs hair. OTOH the boy mini schnauzer somehow manage to pee all over himself lifting leg.
