I also find shaving him down eliminates the smell as well.
What a handsome guy!
I bathe my Old English Sheepdogs when ever they need it. I keep them in their long coat and it does take a awhile to dry. But I towel dry them and use a hairdryer on them. One day I might get a real pet blower, but I've done without for 30 years.
The dog washing stations/businesses in our area do have the blowers.
My m-i-l kept my husband's sheepie outside (before we married). Her beard would turn green in the summer (too much pond water) and often freeze in the winter (not that it stopped her). Slimmey, wet kisses.
