Our pets are beloved family members – but if they’re not hopping in the shower for a daily scrub like the rest of us, chances are they get rather smelly – quickly…

If you want to make sure your home doesn’t have that characteristic ‘doggy smell’, without sacrificing Fido’s comfort or safety, keep reading!

  • Ideally, look for machine washable baskets and bedding when you first purchase your best friend’s gear.
  • The ability to throw a whiffy rug in the wash will prove invaluable.
  • But if you’d like to freshen it all up, simply sprinkle a thick layer of bicarb onto the bedding.
  • Leave it for about 15 minutes, then vacuum it up. This is a great way to freshen up rugs and other hard-to-wash furniture items, too.

Remember that this will beat stink, not pests. Invest in a high-quality tick-and-flea treatment for your dog’s bedding, too, for added peace of mind

Keeping your four-legged friend healthy- and smelling great- has never been easier.
