Dog Deodorant: Stinky Dog Spray

Get rid of that stinky dog smell with this DIY dog deodorant that smells like refreshing lavender and lemon. I certainly don’t have a lot of dog, but despite his small size he can get pretty smelly at times. Wet fur from the rain or a swim in the ocean is par for the course when you have a pooch. I love getting outside with him no matter what the weather, but that means that I have a whole lot of extra washing to do to keep his clothes, toys, and bed from smelling like wet dog.DIY Doggie Deordorant for stinky dogs

I wrote out my doggie deodorant recipe over on my eBay blog where I write about DIY crafts, gardening, and recipes as well. Please head over there to see how to make this simple but effective stinky dog spray!

DIY DOG Deodorant (5)

Well, hello there Dog Lover! Since you clearly love dogs like I do, here are some other dog-related articles you might like.

I treat my dog naturally first when he has a minor ailment like an ear infection, grungy teeth, or (gasp) flatulence. Many of the things I use are already handy in your kitchen like apple cider vinegar, canned pumpkin, and essential oils. I have a list of them all here (which is again over on my eBay blog. I write over there every week so there are plenty more cool, crafty, natural-living ideas to find).Home Remedies for the Natural Dog

I also like to pamper Meatball with the occasional home-baked treat! Well, not that occasional. These squirrel cookies were a big hit. Actually, it surprised me to no end how nutso he went for these cookies, given the very basic ingredients. I thought that store-bought cookies would certainly trump the homemade, with all the delicious duck-scent and all. But nope, my pooch loves his homemade squirrel cookies and you can get the recipe here.The Homemade Oatmeal Dog Cookies That Drive Dogs CRAZY

    I made your stinky dog spray as directions stated. My dog broke out in hives. Thank God for Benedryl.

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that, Kristin! It sounds like your poor pooch had an allergic reaction to one of the oils. I always recommend testing it on a small area first, because everybody and every dog is different. I would also have a look at the ingredients to make sure that it was pure witch hazel with no additives, and pure essential oils (not fragrance oils) as there can sometimes be hidden ingredients that are causing the issue. Perhaps patch test the pure witch hazel and if that is OK, then add a few drops of lavender and patch test again. Ironically, witch hazel is great for treating inflamed and itchy skin, like hives so it should have helped his/her skin not caused a reaction. Thank you so much for reporting back your experience, it is valuable information to share. All my best, Stephanie
