I was digging out my brewing stuff and could'nt find my primary bucket for my beer.......come to find out the wife has been using it to store dry dog food.....I guess I should buy another one....not sure if a good cleaning with powder brew wash will get rid of that smell....

I would get a new one, or even better I would spend the few extra bucks on a 6.5 gallon glass carboy or better bottle.

I'd buy a new bucket. Dog food isn't as bad as pickles, but buckets are cheap.

There are probably oils stuck to the sides now that will be hard to get off. Better bottle and tell your wife its not for saving loose change

Dry dog food is probably abrasive enough to have roughed up the inside providing a breeding ground for infection.

This really is a good option. However the SWMBO may not like it. But like the quote says " There is nothing I can do about it." S.
