Smells that dogs don’t like
Knowing the scents that dogs don’t like can help you for educational purposes. For example, with the help of them you can wean a pet to gnaw some objects or go into some rooms. So what are these scents?
Pepper. Dogs don’t like this smell — for them it is too strong and sharp. But it is important not to overdo it, because, inhaling such an aroma, the dog can burn the mucous membrane.
Tobacco. If you do not want your pet to look into some places in the apartment, then you can use tobacco from cigarettes there. — the dog is unlikely to want to poke his nose there.
Citrus. Not only do cats dislike these smells, dogs also dislike them. It is enough to decompose the citrus peel in those places where the pet should not be. Or moisten with citrus essential oils those objects that the dog gnaws.
Volatile organic compounds. These are alcohol, household chemicals, gasoline, ammonia, solvents, paint and varnish products, acetic acid. That is why, by the way, dogs do not tolerate drunk people, from whom the smell of alcohol is too strong.
The smell of metal. It is unlikely that you will be able to use it for educational purposes, but be aware that dogs do not like this scent. Therefore, you should not allocate a place for a pet next to metal structures. — this can make the dog nervous.
