Dog Odor : Simple Homemade Lavender Dog Fur Deodorant

No matter how cute or cuddly your furry companion dog odor is unavoidable and comes with the territory of pet ownership. After a long day of frolicking and romping in mud or at the park dogs can become smelly in between bathes when oils and dirt saturate their fur.

Although canine odor will never be completely exterminated. Here is a simple, safe, non-toxic
odor-eater solution for you in the form of a homemade fur deodorizer that will not only freshen the air but your dogs coat. What we love about this deodorant is that it is easy to make and apply. Baking soda helps soaks up the oil and odor while lavender gives your dogs coat an oh so pleasant scent without attracting bugs and pest. Hey, you may forget you have a dog!

1. Sift the baking soda and the lavender into a bowl to combine. Apply the powder mixture to your dog's coat a teaspoon at a time, working it through the fur to the skin. Let the powder sit on the dog for 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Groom the dog with the brush, removing the majority of the powder from its coat.

3. Run a baby wipe over the dog's fur to remove any remaining baking soda mixture. Avoid using the wipes on your dog's face and near eyes.

4. Repeat this procedure once a month in between bathes, if necessary.
