The Best Dog Deodorizers

It is no secret that dogs can smell bad. Heck, humans can smell bad too. But we bathe more often than dogs – well, some of us do, anyway. Bathing a dog can be a hassle, so it is extremely helpful to have a product that can keep your dog smelling pleasant in between baths. That product is dog deodorizer, alternatively called dog deodorant, dog cologne, or dog perfume. Spray it on your stinky pooch and eliminate the stink. It's as easy as applying spray deodorant or perfume or cologne to yourself. There are some good dog deodorizers out there, but we found the best. Read on for our reviews of the best dog deodorizers on the market today.
