    Best skunk deodorizer:

    •Prepare a bowl that can be thrown away (disposable).
    •Put in 4 cups of hydrogen peroxide.
    •Pour in half a cup of baking soda.
    •Add 1 teaspoon of liquid soap.
    •Mix all of the ingredients together in the bowl.
    •Remember to wear protective gloves so that you do not absorb the foul odor of the skunk.
    •Use a wash rag to apply the mixture vigorously to the areas that have been sprayed. Do not apply to the eyes and in the mouth of your dog. Applying to the muzzle and face obviously can’t be done as vigorously as to the rest of the dog.
    •After you have applied the remedy to your dog, don’t wash it off or rinse it off immediately; let it sit for about ten minutes, and then rinse thoroughly.
    •Repeat this two or three times if needed, depending on how strong the smell is on your dog. One treatment normally is enough.
    The above mixture works well for an average sized dog, with average-length hair. For long-haired or large dogs, add more peroxide. For smaller dogs use less peroxide.

    Wow! What a snap judgement when you don’t know me or my dog. Jazz is my companion and beloved pet. He’s a happy bouncy boy who definitely is not “overtrained”. Swissys are a versatile breed who love to do things with their humans and Jazz is no exception. If I pull out his leash or backpack or just a toy, he’s eager and ready for whatever the day has to bring. And yes, when I have to help a dog over the Rainbow Bridge(usually due to old age), I am an hysterical mess, not because I have no empathy, but because my beloved companions of many years and activities are no longer a part of my life. It’s you who should be kept away from dogs as you don’t seem to understand the bonds between canines and their humans that develop.

    I disagree cubefarmer. I’ve had purebred Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs for 15 yrs now. They pull carts, go backpacking wearing their own packs, herd sheep, are therapy dogs, do agility, obedience, rally, and yes attend conformation dog shows. They do what they are bred to do.

    I’d take a treehouse over some of the offices I’ve worked in. At least it has a door and a window.
