Question by bonniclarkson: Anyone have a “recipe” for a Natural Deodorizer for Dogs that really works?
When I bring my dog in from the outside after her walk, she has a very strong doggie odor. I realize that she is a dog, and she will smell to a degree, but it is very strong right after her walk (and even worse if it is hot, humid and/or damp/raining outside). I saw at the pet store, they have all kinds of deodorizers, but they all seem to be a perfume that would simply mask the odor.

I was wondering if any one out there knows of a natural deodorizer that can be made at home? I read about a natural deodorant for people that is made of baking soda (natural deodorizer) and corn starch (supposedly healthier because it does not contain talc). I wonder if some thing like that could be used with dogs?

I prefer not to put chemicals on my dog or make her smell like a perfume factory!!

I did read about using a fabric softener sheet, but I have to wonder how good that is since dogs do lick their fur, and I would think that the chemicals could be ingested.

She does not have a skin condition as we were at the vet less then three weeks ago. My vet says some dogs just get the heavy dog odor when they go outside, and it dissipates over time. But he says all dogs have some odor. I was just wondering if there was anything “natural” that would work that could be brushed/sprayed on etc.

Vet says to bathe her weekly or bi-weekly as needed and that the smell would be less in the cooler temps. He also suggested doggy deo sprays, but like I said, those seem like they just cover up the smell and leave her smelling like perfume. Just wanted to see if anyone else used something more natural….
So…. I am guessing that no one can answer this question?
