Change your Samoyed's food. Blue Buffalo. Is he an outdoor dog? They will stink very bad outside. Kennel a Samoyed, they self-clean.

Your Samoyed also may need his anal glands to be expressed, it is common in some breeds to have it done by a vet often, others maybe every year or two. He will scoot his rear at times, as if he had worms but does not. The annual vet check up, with good food like Blue Buffalo that has no corn or byproducts, along with regular bathing (every two weeks is way to often where I live in Colorado, where it is dry and needs some protective oils) is a good way to prevent most problems. It may also be as simple as something in the back yard that clings to his hair, or even urine that may have issues, and a simple blood work panel would help identify health issues before they become serious. Also, too many treats, especially the spicy ones, may do more harm than good, causing bloat, gas, etc.
