Doggy smell. How to help...

by MO_Thoughts2 on June 8, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We are dog sitting a friend's dog for 10 days. She's been a very well behaved dog. No accidents in the house. She sheds a bunch. However, I have a super sensitive sense of smell and the "doggy smell" is bothersome. It's most pronounced when she comes inside after being outside in the morning. Of course she's a little wet because the grass is full of dew in the morning. Any suggestions other than daily vacuuming due to her shedding?
