Homemade Dog Odor Spray


Seems like no matter how often I bathe the dogs, they find some way to smell ASAP. I’ve been tweaking some recipes I found online a few years ago and these are the ones we use the most often.

This cleansing spray that leaves them odor-free (except for a nice, very mild, shampoo-like odor), shiny, and feeling very soft. I just spritz them all over and rub them with a towel, out in the garage before they come back into the house. It takes less than 2 minutes per dog.

Doggy Deodorant 

Spray bottle

* 1 cup of purified water (I just use bottled water)

* 10 drops lavender essential oil

* 6 drops sweet orange oil

* 6 drops peppermint essential oil

* 3 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients into the spray bottle and shake well. I hate a spray bottle that stops working in just a few weeks and this spray bottle has become my favorite. It’s the same kind that the salon uses and it’s awesome for multiple dogs!
  2. Cover the face and eyes of your dog and spray on their coat to get rid of their dog odor.

If your pup seems to smell like they need a bath ten minutes after you’ve just given them one…

 

Canine Calm

Spray bottle

* 1 1/4 cup of purified water (I just use bottled water)

* 10 drops lavender essential oil

* 5-10 drops of Roman chamomile essential oil

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix ingredients together, pour into spray bottle and shake.
  2. Cover face and eyes of your dog with a cloth or hand.
  3. Spray a light mist over your dog during times when they need help settling.

This is great for Fourth of July and New Years Eve fireworks. We use this before visits to the vet, they always get so worked up with all the smells. Also, if you have a pup that gets super excited when people come over (and maybe have a little pee pee accident), use this about 10 minutes before your guests arrive.

If you have a dog with dry, itchy skin, try this quick recipe out…it’s FABULOUS! Our vet recommends adding Nutri-Pet Nupro to your dog’s diet if they spend a fair amount of time scratching. You should also see how your dog’s food is rated on Dog Food Advisor, what we put into bodies affects the outside, more than we even realize.
