SoloRiver Posted December 31, 2008 Report Share Posted December 31, 2008 Is there such thing as a Febreze for dogs? Something you can spray that magically kills odors? As those of you who have met him can attest, Solo is a heavily coated dog. I regularly use a stripping tool to remove excess undercoat, but there's still a lot left and I am loathe to remove more since I think he is handsome in his coat. I have a very specific problem. We now live in Oregon. In the Pacific Northwest, it rains all winter, almost every day. That means Solo never really dries, and that his hind end in particular takes on a unique odor. Suffice it to say that at this time of year, Solo's nickname becomes "Cheesebutt." Bathing him does not help because the problem is back within a few days. He has a luxuriant tail and butt breeches that I like to refer to as his "Lassie Ass." Since he is a Border Collie, he usually holds his tail low between his hocks. I think that this causes the area under his tail and between his hind legs to remain damper than the rest of him, which is the source of the cheesiness. He isn't moldy and everything is healthy back there -- he's just kind of musty. Because I love him, I find his old cheese scent sort of endearing, and obviously it doesn't bother him, but I have to admit that it's not the best of smells and my husband thinks it's kinda gross. Any advice on what I might spray back there, other than actual Febreze or Lysol, to ameliorate the cheese would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
