    Defaulthouse and dog smell

    Obviously when you have your dog leaving in the house during day and night the house starts to smell "dog". Although I open the windows to get fresh air in the house it still smells.

    It might be ok with me since I leave with a dog and I got used to it but to the guests it's a strong smell\feeling because they are not used to it and they think the house is not cleaned.. even tho I mop with detergent that has a good smell.

    What do you do about this issue? How often do you mop the house? If I mop often will the smell go away or I will always have the "dog" smell in the house?

    Cassie is almost 6mo and I have never bathe her..

    thanx.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    My house doesn't have a dog smell. I have 2 and sometimes up to 4 on a daily basis...and my house never smells. My friends even say that they could never tell that I have dogs. I brush my dogs, and vacuum a couple of times a week. Otherwise, I don't do anything special.

    I don't have a dog smell either ~ at least according to friends and family. The only place I tend to notice any odor is occasionally in the finished basement where their crates all are but I just wash the bedding and it solves the problem, I do vacuum often (but I have 6 labs) about 3 times a week and swiffer the first floor daily (but that's because I have a white tile floor in the kitchen ~ I do that section twice a day.) I mop the kitchen often (again WHITE tile! UGH!) but the rest I only mop weekly. If your pup is on the furniture that will hold the odor so vacuum or wipe down couches etc.

    I always get comments on how my place does not smell like a dog at all. I know that carpets can retain the "fritos" smell from their feet maybe, but it's nothing that regular vacuming and carpet cleaning won't get rid off.

    My house doesn't smell like dog and I have 2. I use swiffer wet mops regularly and clean their bedding. I used baking soda on the carpet if its been particularly damp.

    I notice some dogs smell more "doggy" than others. What kind of food are you giving them? I avoid chicken with my two because I notice they smell more "doggy" when they have chicken based dog food.

    I wash the beds and spray the carpets and stairs with a Febreeze type thing. My house also does not smell.

    LOL, after reading that I went into the living room to smell Duke's feet.
