Just keep in mind that your dog has an extremely sensitive nose. Anything with a lot of fragrance will probably be overwhelming to them.

 

^^ This.

 

I'm extremely sensitive to synthetic fragrances. Even small amounts literally make me sick. But my dogs object to fragrances that are subtle enough to barely register for me. Bodhi, especially. If I use anything on him that has a fragrance he's rolling on carpet or grass for hours trying to get it off. He can't stand them.

Generally dogs hate the kind of fragrance that people seem to like. Really hate. I wouldn't ever do that to my dog, myself.

 

If you want a fragrance, try hard to find out that your dog likes too.

Zag comes home from grooming so proud of being clean and pretty. He doesn't roll around and get dirty again when he comes home like I thought he would. I don't know what the groomer put on him, but it was persistent.
