    I scrub and scrub Skip...

    Other than that, I'm watching this post with interest as it seems to be Skip's favourite hobbie... His collar and everything gets caked in it.

    I've even considered Fabreeze lol... Didn't think his Skin would approve though.

    Maybe that's a Dragon's Den idea? Fabreeze for Dogs! :D

    Ooooh nice!

    I've not had the dubious pleasure of trying to get rid of the smell of fox poo (we don't have them where I live, dead seals are another matter though :rolleyes:) but I've read that tomato ketchup is one way to get rid of it (I presume you use it in the shampooing process) or Animology do a Fox Poo Shampoo which you can get from Pets at Home if you have one nearby.

    Good luck!

    Ive read up on Smells & Ive read conflicting info on using a Bi-Carb rinse for Dogs (& people)

    Bi-carb is FAB for absorbing smells so maybe (if it is safe) that would work

    A lady who i see when walking told me Tomatoe Ketchup was what she used on her 4 springers when they roll. I think you rub it into the coat and then shampoo and rinse off. Haven't tried it and hopefully mine will carry on they way they do at the moment and not roll :eek:

    Oh! The smell! It stays in your nose for hours!!! Last week when Skip rolled, I scrubbed him with pet wipes soaked in water (you shoul have seen the colour of them afterwards), soaked his collar in hot, soapy water overnight, and bathed him with tea tree shampoo... I then went over him again with the pet wipes, brushed and brushed and then dried him off... He still STUNK!

    My dry heaving wasn't impressing him either lol.

    I've seen tomato ketchup recommended but have never had to try it myself.

    Tomato juice also works, and not quite as sticky as tomato ketchup :)

    I should imagine so - perhaps its the acidity that works -so if it works for ketchup and juice, it should also work for passata. Good luck with it, it's gonna get messy :)

    As many on here know, this is pretty much a daily occurrence at our place!

    I can confirm that Tomato Ketchup does work to neutralise the smell, although on a white dog it does look a but like there has been a massacre and they get left with a pink tinge!

    Also recommend the Animology Fox Poo Shampoo :)
