Smell Goodies
Santa’s secret for keeping dogs and homes fresh for the holidays-Smell Goodies. Now available at Long’s Drugs and select pet stores and vets throughout Hawaii.

The holidays are here again! Are you making party arrangements, booking the carpet cleaners and picking up holiday decorations for your home? Welcome to the club! But if you’re part of another club—the dog owners club—worries about “doggie smell” linger as you prepare for guests from near and far to gather in your home to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year. Guests love a party but they don’t love “doggie smells”. Most guests will be too polite to mention their discomfort. They accept that many dog owners are quite oblivious to the odors that can build up in and around their homes courtesy of their favorite fur balls. This year, there is something new you can do to ensure that doggie odors don’t disturb your holiday cheer!


Locally owned and operated Pet Mint, LLC has launched SMELL GOODIES, the all-natural deodorizing tablet that keeps your dog’s coat and breath smelling great. Smell Goodies works with the dog’s digestive system to absorb odors internally before they are secreted onto the dog’s coat or released though its breath. Within one week of their pets’ initial use, most dog owners notice a real difference. Without the doggie odors on their dogs, they can stop worrying about doggie odors in their homes.

Before Smell Goodies, discriminating home owners had no way to really fight “doggie smells” in the home. These aromas are just the natural result of owning a dog who, unlike its owner, doesn’t bathe every day. With their immense love for their pets, dog owners have a difficult time leaving their dogs outside 24 hours a day. With no holiday from the constant battle to keep their homes smelling fresh, pet owners had to rely on room fresheners and carpet deodorizers. Frequent carpet shampooing and upholstery cleaning, while expensive, were necessary. Then there was the constant washing of linens, bed spreads and sofa slip-covers. All you could do to “deodorize” your dog was shampoo, sprinkle powders or give them a temporary wipe down. By comparison, giving Smell Goodies to your dog is fast, convenient and neutralizes odors, rather than masks them.

Smell Goodies is so innovative that it was selected as one of 30 winners of the 2007 Pet Product News Editors’ Choice Awards! Pet Product News is the leading monthly business news magazine covering issues and trends affecting all sectors of the professional pet industry. The magazine tests hundreds of products each year and recognizes the best innovative new products with its Editors’ Choice Award. After testing the product, Pet Product News editors were able to confirm that Smell Goodies really works! This recognition brought Smell Goodies to the attention of PETCO, the pet retail giant with over 800 stores nationwide, which will begin carrying Smell Goodies in all their stores by March 2008.


Smell Goodies is already available in the Islands in the pet aisle at all Longs Drugs stores and in select pet stores and veterinary clinics throughout Hawaii. Ring in the New Year with a great smelling dog and home. Whether your lovable pooch is up on the couch, on your bed or sitting on your guests’ laps, this year you can relax and enjoy the festivities!

A Vet’s Advice

Q: How does a product like Smell Goodies work to minimize dog odor?

A: The natural, plant based formula in Smell Goodies has been scientifically tested and shown to neutralize odor causing compounds internally before they are secreted through the dog’s skin and released through its breath. Many dog owners in my practice have used Smell Goodies and it really works well on their dogs. I have no affiliation with the Smell Goodies company but I like to recommend their product because I know how well it works and I like to use a more natural approach in my practice when one is available.
