I love my dogs and their adorable smushy faces. That being said, I could do without the stinky farts caused by the amount of air they swallow while eating, which humans to all brachycephalic breeds must learn to live with because no special bowl or food will eliminate them entirely.
So I was more than happy to test the CritterZone, a plug-in air naturalizer, before approving it as this week’s Friday Freebie. The maker of the device explains that it creates a natural, charged flow that fills a room and continually cleans the air, eliminating odors, allergens, dust, and bacteria, just as the sun and wind work to do outdoors.
I placed the CritterZone in the bedroom, which has carpet that no matter how often I get cleaned always retains a slight eau de dog. Spot and Dolly love to use it as a back scratcher, and in their opinion it makes a much better spot for “accidents” than any tile or wood surface in our home.
After just a day of it running, I noticed less of a smell when entering the bedroom. (FYI, I have a very sensitive nose.) After a few weeks, my nose couldn’t tell the difference at all between the air in the room and the hallway leading to it. I also haven’t been awoken from a deep sleep by a stinky fart since turning on the device. Job well done, CritterZone.
