    DefaultSmelly dog run!

    We have a chcolate lab and a husky lab x. We recently built a dog run for them and covered the ground with gravel. We clean the poop out of it daily, and spray it down with the water hose on a weekly basis. Lately, there is a really gross odour eminating from it. Is there any way to get rid of this? I was thinking about a vinegar and water mix, but then the dogs might not go pee and poop in there. What about some kind of disinfectant like Dettol mixed with water? Any suggestions or tips? I appreciate your help.

    Thank you,
    Amy

    Bacteria is probably growing under your gravel. How often are the dogs in the run?

    I'm not too sure, but if you ask your local hardware store, they might be able to tell you.

    Probably you would have to use a certain type of chemical, but I'm not sure which ones would be safe for your dogs.
