Choosing the Right Dog Fragrance Spray
What are Dog Fragrance Sprays?
Dog fragrance sprays are specifically formulated to reduce the smell of bad odour common in dogs, without causing irritation to the skin or nose. Groomers often use a dog fragrance spray as a finishing touch to enhance the smell of a freshly groomed dog.
Whether you are a groomer looking to add an extra touch to enhance your grooms or a dog owner wanting to instantly freshen up your pooch, we are here to provide you with advice and guidance into different types of dog perfumes on the market.
Choosing the Right Fragrance for your Dog
When choosing the right dog fragrance spray, make sure you are looking at perfumes that do not contain any harsh chemicals. Look for colognes that are pet friendly and safe to use.
There are two different types of pet perfumes; alcohol-based and water-based. Alcohol-based sprays dry instantly, whereas water-based sprays leave the coat damp and can take longer to dry. Alcohol fragrance sprays also last significantly longer compared to water-based sprays, as the alcohol evaporates away, enabling the scent to come alive! If the dog becomes wet, the scent is then rejuvenated for up to 1 week after spraying. Whereas, most water-based sprays only last a few hours. Many professional groomers use alcohol fragrance sprays at the end of the groom, just before they hand the dog over to their owner, as it not only makes the dog smell beautiful, it also leaves their bed and your car smelling nice.
Another advantage to alcohol-based sprays is that they are highly concentrated so only 1-2 sprays are needed to make your dog smell gorgeous! The spray simply sits on the top of the coat and in addition, alcohol sprays are sterile. In comparison, 5-6 sprays are recommended with water-based sprays, therefore you don’t need to use as much with the alcohol sprays meaning it’s quicker to apply and better value for money.
What are the Benefits of Using Fragrance Sprays?
Dog colognes should not replace regular baths, but should instead be used to enhance their scent.
Other fragrances are formulated to help neutralise bad odours which are common in pets. Perfect for when you get back from a long walk or after bath time to enhance their fresh smell for longer. Baby powder scents are a particular top-seller!
