My dogs aren't dirty dogs but if I take them to work I'd like them to have a nice smell to them. Does anyone use a light little doggie spray (perfume) to make them smell nice?

Because dogs have the sensitive olfactory system, I would not want to put something on them to make them smell unnatural. I felt bad enough when I was putting on the essential oil spray to repel ticks.
My dogs don't smell though...I know some breeds have that doggy odor-glad the GSD isn't one of them(unless they are on a crappy diet)!

A healthy, clean dog should not smell. Putting some nasty perfume on him is never a good idea as it might offend your dog and you will have stinky dog/perfume smell. A better bet is to just give your dog a bath so he doesn't smell.

Not that I recommend this, but the last 2 times I have sprayed the carpet with Febreze Willow has rolled around on the carpet soaking it up. The funniest thing I have ever seen. I told her it wasn't doggie perfume but she didn't seem to care.

I think she was trying to get her scent on the carpet, vs taking the scent from it! Dogs will roll to get their scent around(rubbing their cheeks)

I mix 1/2 and 1/2 apple cider vinegar to water and put in a touch of hair conditioner. I spray it on a washcloth and wipe them down when they get a bit odiferous, especially when they smell like the bottom of a fish tank after a swim in the lake. It removes the odor but doesn't leave a linger smell and the little bit of conditioner leaves them nice and shiny. I've also used wipes made by Nature's Miracle and they work well too

Thank you for your suggestions. I remember seeing a dog catalog selling a spray but couldn't remember which one and I was hoping to find a very light scented one. Thanks for the help!
