Default Am I Crazy?

I swear that my dog gives off a smell when she's nervous/scared . . . am I nuts?

It's possible! When some dogs get nervous it causes their anal glands to release. It gives off a very strong musky fishy smell.

It's very possible. We had a dog that did the same thing. I never did find out what did it, but the anal gland theory sounds good
