Dry Dog's Belly with Sheet After Walk

With 2 feet of snow on the ground, my collie gets pretty wet on his walks. Rub his under side with a fabric sheet to keep him from smelling like wet dog.

Do you mean a sheet sheet (Which in itself will not hide odors) or a fabric sheet, such as the ones you place in dryers? If you meant that kind, please be aware that some dogs could be allergic to the scents in a fabric/dryer sheet, or if they lick it off their wet fur, it could cause gastric problems, if not poisoning.

Again, please do not use dryer sheets (fabric softener sheets) on your pets! The chemicals in them are very harmful if ingested.

In November I posted a warning about this on this website, here is the link.

Here is an excerpt: This is a very dangerous idea, because dryer sheets contain poisonous, even carcinogenic, chemicals. Pets lick themselves and sometimes their surroundings, so you don't want to use anything that can leave behind chemicals that they can ingest. Dryer sheets contain loads of toxic chemicals, such as benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, and chloroform, among others, some of which the manufacturers don't have to reveal to the public. Some of these chemicals cause the softening and others are used to perfume the sheets to give them their "lovely" aromas.
