We all love our pets. Americans have a particular love for dogs. These loyal family members bring lots of joy to our homes every day. We play with them outside, and snuggle with them in comfy spots around the home.

Just like us, our furry family members need regular grooming and bathing along with health check-ups to stay healthy and happy. Without these, our pets can become the source of unwanted odors and unhealthy elements in the home. Regular vacuuming helps and periodic deeper cleanings by a professional carpet and upholstery cleaner can be very effective at removing unpleasant pet odors from carpets and upholstery in your home.

However, in order to keep them out, you sometimes have to treat the source: your dog.

Here are some insights on where these unpleasant odors come from and how to combat them. Hopefully these tips will also help your beloved pet be a healthier and happier family member.
