Growing up we had always had dogs and kept their dog beds in the entryway of our house. Even if the dogs were clean, somehow those dog beds would cause the whole room to smell like dog. People coming in were greeted with an onset of dog smell and was something my mom was always self-conscious about (I was more of a “Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by the smell of a dog?” kinda person).
Since purchasing our first home, I’ve known what it means to be self-conscious about your house. Even though we don’t have any pets (cough, cough, Lee when can we get a dog?), I can definitely relate to my mom’s fear that we would be known as the house that smelled like dog.
No one wants to be known as having the house that smells like an animal (yes, cat houses can have a very definite smell as well). That’s why we are harnessing the deodorizing power of Ginger Essential Oil along with our Peace and Quiet Blend to create the best Dog Deodorizing Spray.
