This is an unusual presentation. Some urinary tract/anal sac infections can mimic certain pheromone odors. Another possibility is that the production of testosterone has been reduced by neutering (castration) and this allows the estrogens produced by the adrenal glands to predominate.

The adrenal glands produce a combination of male and female hormones in both sexes. I can not answer if this is a permanent situation for your two dogs, my impression is that it should clear up in four to six weeks, and simply because of habituation.
