Adam IL, Illinois 1/4/2015 8:19:41 PM To Joe in Albany. Do not listen to Z. Pits are not supposed to be bathed frequently unless they get themselves dirty by rolling in dirt or mud, or get other filth on them. The best thing with a Pitty is to brush them everyday or at least every other. It gets rid of the dead fur which may be what smells. If need be by a nice dry shampoo. Its a spray on shampoo than you spray on and just towel off. If your dog gets wet alot and especially when your not brushing to remove the dead fur they can start to stink a bit. DO NOT bathe your pit once a month.
