I've got an older dog and two new pups, but my two came in as puppies, not year old dogs. I wish you luck with this, I am not going to offer any advice as I really feel I am not qualified. Just based on the breed I again suggest a really good professional trainer give you some advice.
I agree giving them a bath will not solve all the issues , I was thinking the female dog may have some smells on her as she was living outside.
