Dog Kennel Odor - 5 Ways to Minimize Dog Kennel Odor
One of the best ways to attract new clients to a dog kennel or doggy daycare is to make sure that it smells good to the owners who are going to make the decision.
Having your kennel smell fresh and clean says a lot of good things about how the canine clientele is treated. Here are 5 things you can do that will keep your kennel smelling fresh and clean every day.
Make Sure Dogs Are Healthy-Current medical records can help you admit only dogs that are healthy. Diarrhea and urinary problems can mean huge problems for the individual dogs and the rest of the dogs in the kennel.
Increased and unpredictable elimination can greatly add to the odor. And admitting healthy dogs can help the rest of your canine clients stay well.
Clean Floors and Kennels Regularly-Cleaning and sanitizing the floors and kennels daily will keep urine and feces odor to a minimum. Regularly scheduled maintenance can keep the bacteria and virus count low. This prevents them from going airborne if feces are left to dry before they are cleared away.
A clean kennel makes for a happy work staff. A happy work staff can possibly mean less turn over, and a staff that will interact well with the canine and human clients. Positive interaction is a win-win situation for everyone and goes a long way towards repeat customers.
Provide a Play Area-Providing an outdoor area of grass, mulch, and even a wading pool for dogs who love water can cut down on the elimination done when they are in their individual kennels. Scheduling play time after meal time increases the chances that elimination will happen outdoors and can be cleared away without causing smelly indoor problems.
Allowing dogs to play outside at least several times each day will help the dogs release some energy and even anxiety about being in a new place.
Clean Up Quickly--Should a dog soil itself, giving a bath immediately will make the dog feel better, and will make your kennel smell better too. Dogs like being clean too. Obviously, this will cut down on the smell, and keep other dogs happier as well.
Constantly Filter the Air-With the large number of dogs that are generally present in a kennel situation, dog hair,dander, and odor can make the air thick. 24 hour filtration by a HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting air filter will eliminate 99,997 out of every 10,000 particles down to.3 microns in size.
Then to HEPA filtration add a carbon based filter with an additive specifically designed to eliminate urine odor and that type of purifier can make your kennel can literally be a breath of fresh air for all.
