    Defaultlisterine spray bath ??????

    Was just wondering if someone can give me the mix in making the listerine spray bath? Also can we give it to our 3 month old & how often is safe? Thank you!

    Is this the smell she had when you got her or new?

    Dogs should have a very faint "dog" odor. Especially labs. If they stink it's often health related or ... they rolled in something. They shouldn't smell like "nothing" nor should they smell "clean"

    Hopefully someone with more experience posts. I would go with a gentle DOG shampoo before Listerine.

    ETA: the recipe is in this post, it has more answers to your question as well

    First, try hosing the dog down real good. NO SHAMPOO AT ALL. After the dog is COMPLETELY dry you will probably notice there is no more smell (especially if she is only 3 months).

    If you do still think she smells, try a few spritz of the Listerine (1/2 water, 1/2 Listerine). Just spray on, brush off. A few sprays should do it. I wouldn't use the shampoo unless you had to.

    I agree.....no baths with shampoos unless absolutely necessary. It can dry out the natural oils in their coat.

    Tucker's not had a bath yet, and if he ever does have a smell (which is rare), I spritz him with the 1/2 Listerine, 1/2 water from a spray bottle (not in eyes or ears). I've heard breeders do this, too, at times, before going into the show ring....to 'freshen' things up.
