    I do not remember the exact amounts but I used this recipe and my dog Actually slept in my bedroom with me and NO stink. Water, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, Peroxide and Baking Soda. It is on the internet. I just mixed it in a bucket and did the dogs in the tub. Like you - 2 dogs so needed 2 Buckets of mixture.

    Trust me on this one, I got it from our vet's office and I have used it too many times to count:
    Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda
    8 oz. hydrogen peroxide
    1/4 cup liquid dish detergent in a jug or half gallon bottle. put in a squeeze bottle or pour on if you need to. Cover the whole dog with this stuff. Let it sit on them for 5 minutes. Then rinse.
    While it is on the dog, rub it in really good.
    Trust me, this beats tomato juice, shampoo and just about all the other concoctions I have tried.
    Good luck.

    Quote:make a loose paste with the baking soda and peroxide... a few drops of dish soap and wash away...

    **NOTE** take off all jewelry... it will tarnish some pieces

    Oh, I'm so sorry you're having this trouble, but after trying everything in the book, vinegar, tomato juice, etc, I went to the pet shop and bought this enzme that you rub in and leave for 10 minutes and rinse out. Smell was gone. I can't remember the name of it, but worth every penny. I think I still have some, let me look.

    Quote:I found this recipe on the internet years ago after my min pin came inside reeking of skunk juice in the wee hours of the morning and it works well, very well.

    I mix mine in a plastic pitcher and use a wash cloth to drizzle it on my dog, be sure not to get it in their eyes, work it into their coat and then rinse thoroughly. I have had to use this a couple of times and keep a fresh bottle of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda on hand at all times.

    Now if I could find something to get rid of the smell inside the house that would be even better!
