    Interesting post...I wonder if Brooklyn smells! Ha. My husband and I always comment on how much we love her smell, that we actually don't like the way she smells after a bath, not natural!

    I absolutely hate dog smell too. I did not grow up with dogs, and since Brooklyn is my first one, I am so sensitive to it. She gets brushed daily, I brush her teeth, and FuzzYard make a wonderful refreshing spray for their coat (they also make one for the bed). And I wash her once every two weeks...if she is not smelly or dirty, I will stretch that. Also, I have reed diffusers all over the house in a neutral but nice scent. I too hate air freshener smell, so some really nice reed diffusers keep the place smelling nice always. I also light candles every night (but more for me than her!) and open windows and doors. I wash bedding every few weeks too.

    I think that does it! But really, I just don't think Brooklyn smells....but it is always my fear because you know those people who smell or who's houses smell, don't actually smell it!

    Since we got Benji, my mother has become obessed with scented candles to make sure the house doesn't smell of dog. During the winter she would light them every night but that was when he was younger and still had accidents in the house. Now it's not that bad and pretty everyone that comes round says the house doesn't smell of dog, much to the mothers delight.

    As for bathing him, he gets a bath once a month if that and that's only if he really needs it.

    Im really glad I started this thread now, come out all you 'doggy whiffers' and show yourselves !

    Seriously, it is turning out to be very useful and informative. << me!

    Alfie himself doesn't smell bad, just 'all baby and nice', but the bedding and his toy have a certain tang to them ( still not unpleasant really ) His bedding... not a problem, can be washed, but not all his toys can be washed if they have bells and squeakers in them. ( Note to self, for future reference buy soft toys from Mothercare where they have no sqeakers and can go in the washing machine ) I thought of trying Neutradol to apply to living room carpet before vac'ing... anyone do this? Some of the products you good people have been suggesting may not be able in UK you see, but many thanks for the tips on candles etc. They would be ideal for my paranoia if visitors are planned. Ive just thought of another...incense sticks !


    Thank you all for your input and making me feel better.

    Another note to self : Dont have a dog if you are overly concerned about a light dog smell

    Third time lucky - I keep losing my post.We use vetbeds as bedding as they can be washed and dried daily if needed as they dry very quickly. We also have fleece throwovers on the chairs that can be washed every couple of days, and taken off when visitors arrive. It's surprising how many toys can be washed and allowed to dry naturally, this gets rid of both smeells and germs. We have wood and laminate floors downstairs so don't have carpet problems. ha ha ha.

    It’s true it depends what kind of dog you have got. I always have been paranoid about the house smelling. I got three cavaliers and the house doesn’t smell. We got wooden floors and leather sofas.
    I don't want my house to stink of dog but also in my opinion a dog should not smell of perfume. I take my Coats milk & oat shampoo with me to the groomers and she even loves it. She always says that most people want their dog to smell perfumy.
