How to Control Dog Odor In your Car
Dogs love seeing the world from the backseat of your car, but what do you do when their odor stays behind long after your dog is gone? There are several steps you can take to reduce or eliminate the smell left behind by a frequent canine passenger in your car.
We think natural odor control is the best for dogs and people!
We love Arm & Hammer's unspillable flow-through
"Fridge Fresh" Packaged Baking Soda in unspillable containers. Designed for use freezers- they're cheap and small enough to tuck under car seats and include adhesive so you can deodorize your car naturally by sticking it under your dashboard.
Keeping 1 or 2 of these under your seats is
a great way to neutralize, rather than just
cover, dog odors.
Riding in the car provides stimulation - but what can you do about the odor they leave behind?
Remove DebrisOf course cleaning your interior is a great way to remove particles embedded with dog odor. Regularly vaccumm or even shampoo your seats. Reduce the work by purchasing a Car Seat Cover for Dogs
that will prevent fibers or liquids from reaching your seats and can be easily pulled out and washed when you start to notice a doggie smell.
Covering the area where the dog sits can really
help, and makes cleaning the area is as simple as
washing the blanket. Premade seat covers are ideal, as they stay in place on the verticle part of the seat.
Deodorize the Source If you want to permenantly eliminate the odor in your car, you'll want to deodorize your dog, not the car.
Make sure your dog is clean, eating a high quality grain free food, and
use a natural deodorizing supplement if needed. We love Liquid Chlorophyll for systemically reducing dog odors. Liquid Chlorophyll absorbs odors internally while improving digestive function. Chlorophyll is a primary active ingredient in popular breath freshening dog treats, however the pure liquid form is more effective at a much lower cost!
