You know, having a dog has been one of the greatest joys of my life. It gets me outside every single day. It encourages me to say hi to new people (and their dogs). The princess most definitely makes me laugh at least once every day, and that is a blessing.
However, there's one small thing about dogs: they can smell. Even if you're super careful and wash them regularly and keep them groomed and help them avoid mudpiles, all it takes is one good play session outdoors or a nice hard rain and there it is...
Doggy smell. On the dog, on the couch, in the air.
Luckily the folks at Isle of Dogs have been giving this a great deal of thought, and they've come up with a daily deodorizing dog spray you can use on one, or all three of the smelly culprits.
The Violet & Sea Mist spray is safe for the air or for your pet's coat, making them far handier than those commercial products that absorb smells and neutralize smelly dog air. Just a few short spritzes is really all it takes, and thankfully the scent is floral but not cloying, light and not obnoxious.
For me, this is the biggest selling point of the spray. I have smelled even shampoos and conditioners for our pooches that are so obnoxiously strong that you can't get the scent out of your house or your nose. (Imagine what that does to your super-sniffing dog!)
Does it work? Yes, as well as any of these types of things do. They work on some smells but not all, and it also depends on the strength of the smell. It's incredibly effective for the car, a little less so for the air in your home but still works, and works on the dog up to a point... but in the end, the only thing that will get rid of that doggy smell is a good bath.
Until tomorrow's play session, that is!
