    Miles-

    Cedar wood is a good deodorant. I have had good results with using cedar wood shavings inside of a small cloth pouch. Put the pouch inside the jacket while the jacket is laying flat. Zip up the jacket and leave it for a few days (or longer). Hopefully, this will help you.

    Miles,
    If it is that bad I have seen posts where people have actually machine washed a shearling jacket and air dried. I did some research a while back and bought some lanolin soap which is supposed to be more delicate to shearling. I used it to spot clean cuffs with reasonable results. In a washing machine I imagine greater results.

    Don't let your dog wear it.

    I would spray it down with Fabreze Spray and Odor Remover and put it out in the sun for a day.
    I've used it on my B3, B6, Irvin AND my dog..........takes the smell out of all of them!;)

    once in a while I give my dogs a bath (all 3 of them) ...

    but no joking think the advice of B-Man 2 works: used that "Febreze" a couple of times on WW2 garment to remove stink so should alos work with your jacket
