No, toy poodles do not smell. In fact, toy poodles are known for having little odor compared to other dog breeds.
With that said, like all dogs, toy poodles can develop a bad smell if something isn’t right with their hygiene or health. Good hygiene and proper grooming are essential to keep your dog smelling good.
Give your toy poodle a bath every two or three weeks. Make sure to clean their skin, not just their coat, to get rid of the body oil that can cause a smell. Check their teeth for food residue that can cause stinky breath.
Minor health issues like ear infections and dehydration can cause poodles’ skin and urine to smell. If the smell remains after a bath, it could be a sign that your toy poodle needs to see a vet.
