Ive just got a boxer puppy and im not used to the house smelling of animals.
We are living in a flat atm for the next 2 weeks so i cant leave back door open but have windows open, been spraying oust and bleaching floors and keeping the house as clean as i can.
Theres always the smell of the dog though.
Is there anything that you can do or will i have to just put up with it until we move and he can go out??
If you are that worried about smells then get rid of the dog....
even when they can go outside they still make the house smell when they come in, specially when wet, urgh.
When you get back to a house, get an outdoor kennel and let the dog live outside, its what they would do naturally, their coats grow thicker to compensate.
mmm I'm thinking of your garden full of dog poo.
I dont want to get rid of him, just wondered what people do who have dogs to keep the house still smelling clean. I know that when we are in the house i can leave the back door open and we wont have carpet downstairs.
I will also be getting a dog crate when we move so he will be trained to stay in there when we are out.
no carpets in the rooms the dog is allowed in, which is all of downstairs for us, he isn't allowed on the furniture, was his bedding regularly as already said and he will be less 'wiffy" when he gets regular walks
Hi, we got our puppy last November and had a lot of the usual puddles on the carpet, I found that this product, 'Pet Odour remover' made by Johnson's was really good - I buy it from my local pet shop. I also invested in a carpet washer machine (I needed it anyway with four kiddies!). I regularly wash her bedding and bath her when she needs it .
I babysat for a friend last night and her house reeks of dog. It is only a tiny little thing though and all the floors are travatine and the sofas are leather. I think you just stop noticing it after a while if you are a dog owner. I like dogs but am put off by the poo in the garden issue.
We got our dog a few months ago and I don't think our house smells of dog (my mum would def comment if it did, lol) we did have a carpet in the dining room but when she was completely house trained we got rid of it and got laminate flooring, she is only allowed in the dining room and kitchen but as we always sit in the dining room she is always with us. she gets groomed and bathed as often as needed and with regards to the poo in the garden, we have a patio area which is fenced off from the garden and she does her business on the patio which is cleaned down every day, she is allowed in the garden in the evening but never does her business on the grass. I must say that Oust is a godsend and should be in everybodies cupboard, lol
