WFMW: Stinky Dogs

I wanted to start out this post listing all the great things about my husband's dog (notice he is NOT mine), but at the moment I can't think of many. Well, he did bark at that weird guy who came to the door the other day, so I guess that's a good thing.

But the first thing that comes to my mind when thinking of our wonderful little (huge) Ruck, is that he can get really stinky. My husband bathes him twice a month but that just wasn't enough for my sensitive nose. Did I tell you he's an indoor dog? Yeah, if he's gonna be near me, my carpet, couch, and clothes he needs to smell decent.

So, on one of our many trips to PetSmart, I was yet again perusing the dog bath section when I ran across this little piece of heaven. These diaper wipe looking things magically take away almost all stinky dog odor with just a few swipes across your dogs fur. And they only cost a few bucks. Well worth it if you ask me.

For more tips check out Rocks In My Dryer. For more on Ruck and the rest of the gang, check out my Ordinary Days.

I ran into those WONDERFUL finds last year when I needed something for my dog's muzzle. She drools a lot (OIY!)and her muzzle gets nasty. A few wipes and she looks almost normal!

febreze also works nicely here...

OOoooo!!! Thanks for this tip!!! We have the same issue with piper, who likes to "creek hop". Wet dog...ewww. I need to get febreeze tomorrow too so I was glad for the reminder 'round these parts. Love the green background too!!

Good tip. My husband and I are planning to get our first dog very soon. I'll have to remember these.

Do you know if they're actualy different from Baby wipes (like, maybe just re-packaged)? Are they supposed to be safer or something?

(We already have *gobs* of baby-wipes...)

Amy Jane,


I checked the box and it does not say anything about not using it on humans. It smells an awful lot like regular baby wipes. Perhaps I've been had.

I would not risk using them on the baby, but I bet you could use baby wipes on a dog. :)

I used pet wipes on my abused rescue dog while we were working with him on his fear of grooming and bathing. You can use baby wipes on a dog, just don't use them to wipe the dog's paw pads. Some baby wipes are made with rubbing alcohol and that will dry the dog's paw pads. But for the rest of the body, they're OK!
