How dog owners can keep their home smelling clean and fresh

Keeping a home clean, tidy and welcoming to guests is a constant challenge – and if you have a dog or other pet, things become even tougher. Here are our recommendations on how to keep your dog happy and your house smelling great…

A dog may be man’s best friend, but sometimes their smell can be anything but friendly to our noses – especially if their idea of a good time is rolling around in next door’s flower bed.

However, while jumping around in dirt or guzzling the contents of your compost heap can lead to plenty of unwanted odors, there are loads of other things that can contribute to your dog being less than fragrant. 

Luckily, there are plenty of quick and easy solutions…

How to stop your dog smelling in the first place
Prevention is always better than cure and there are a number of ways to battle that pooch pong before it becomes even a sniff of a problem.

Firstly, make sure you groom your pet regularly as poor maintenance of your dog’s fur could lead to it becoming clogged with dirt – and that can lead to bad smells becoming a persistent issue.

While the smell might be emanating from your dog, it’s not always your dog who’s the culprit – those innocent puppy dog eyes might just be that.

Their toys, bedding and food bowls could all be contributing to bad smells in your home. To help stop this, ensure you keep everything they come into contact with clean; wash their food bowls as you would your family’s dishes and wash bedding thoroughly and regularly.

Why keeping your home clean is vital to stopping bad dog smells
Vacuuming and cleaning surfaces regularly can also help to combat the dog odor.

Laminate floors are easier to maintain should your dog have an accident.

If your dog does happen to soil your carpet though, just clear the affected area, sprinkle on some baking soda and then vacuum once you’ve allowed it dry.

Remember to open windows in your house too to help ventilate the space.
