Control dog odor — naturally!

Let’s face it – dogs can smell. This non-toxic, earth-friendly product actually eliminates odor by using an oxidizing process.

You love your dog, but you don’t always love the way he smells. That odor can permeate the house, but think twice before reaching for the synthetic air fresheners or sprays. Not only do they contain unhealthy toxins, but all they really do is mask the odors, not get rid of them. Know that there are safe, natural alternatives that will actually eliminate those doggy smells without artificial fragrances or eco-harmful chemicals and aerosols.

One superior option is Nok Out from OdorTECH of Canada, a company based in Stratford, Ontario and founded in 1999 by Dennis Barnes. The long-time businessman, who worked in the service industry for many years, saw a need for a better odor eliminator. “I secured the distribution rights in Canada for a product called Amazing Nok Out,” he says. The line includes a wide range of products, not just for animals, but also for general, household and commercial use.

When Dennis first started out, he had no customers. But now, 15 years later, the products are available in pet stores across the country and can also be ordered online. “Our goal is to provide people with reasonably priced true odor elimination products that work consistently, and are environmentally-friendly as well as user-friendly.”

Nok Out pet products include a versatile, multi-use odor eliminator, a broad spectrum disinfectant and odor eliminator, and even a phosphate-free shampoo. “They are not masking agents or enzymes,” explains Dennis. “Nok Out is an oxidizer. It eliminates odors by oxidizing the bacteria that causes odors at the source.” Dennis adds that the products are non-toxic, non-allergenic and biodegradable, and have no color or odor. Nor will they leave any stains behind; sometimes they can even remove stains. They can be used not only on carpeting and upholstery, but also in litter boxes and crates and on most washable surfaces. They’re effective against skunk odor too.

Any shelter volunteer or rescue operator can tell you that odor control in these facilities can be a constant battle; Dennis and his company work with a number of animal rescues, helping them with odor problems and donating products. On the human side, “we work with the London Ice Dawgs, training children from three to seven years old on the proper way to sanitize their hockey equipment and promote clean and safe enjoyment of the sport.”

It’s clear that Dennis stands 100% behind these natural and effective odor eliminators. “I really enjoy knowing that when we sell to a customer, that customer is going to be very satisfied with their purchase.”
