How to get rid of fox poo… What is it about fox poo?! It drives dogs mad, it’s like Cat Nip to them and they just can’t help themselves and have to roll in it… even the best trained dog will still find the pull of the pong irresistible! The smell is unbelievably pungent, and difficult to get rid of. So why do the little treasures do it?! Dogs still have a few habits left over from their wolf ancestery. It’s believed that in the past, wild dogs would cover themselves in strong-smelling substances like animal poo to hide their smell so they could sneak up on their prey. They’d also also cover their pups in poo to hide their smell from predators. All makes perfect sense but for me that doesn’t explain the absolute joy on their faces and how proud they are of the stink once they do return to you! It’s not a smell to have in your car or home, and there are a two main ways of getting rid of it… Shampoo This is the obvious one but not all shampoo eliminates the unmistakable pungent smell of fox poo so you need to choose carefully. Obviously I’m going to shout about our Anti-Stink Anti-Fox Shampoo Bar – it was the holy grail for us and the first bar we designed: if we could kill the smell of fox poo, without harsh chemicals, and leave the coat in better condition that before, then we were onto a winner. The shampoo helps to remove the stubborn odour of fox poo and leaves your dog smelling AMAZING, fresh and clean. And super super soft and glossy. What’s not to like?! It’s also the shampoo we use as our travel version, as what could be worse than travelling with a super stinky dog!! Or… Tomato Sauce The old favourite is tomato sauce or ketchup, apparently it’s really good for getting rid of fox poo. It’s another way of neutralising the odour. However, it’s super messy, and strips the coat of its oils too – that’s how it removes the traces of fox poo. I can’t think of anything worse that bathing my dog in tomato sauce!! And a small point to note… all that sodium is not good for dogs!! So not something I would do for my dogs… Conclusion So I guess you can work out which one I would recommend – just choose your shampoo carefully, make sure it doesn’t have any nasty chemicals, natural is the way to go, and isn’t surrounded in plastic. And obviously make sure it’s designed to do the job! Other favourite stinky smells to roll in… There are a few other delightful things dogs like to roll in – goose poo, deer poo, or Bertie’s favourite: dead fish!! He also likes to roll in stinky seaweed. The joys of living at the coast. A good shampoo with our bar gets rid of them all thank goodness. What is YOUR dogs favourite thing to roll in?! Do let me know!
