I have two dogs, and I really dislike the "dog" smell. What products should I use?

We've recently decided to put our house on the market and have had a few comments about people being able to smell the cats when they walk into our home. Any ideas on how to curtail that odor while our house is on the market and our cats are here? The cats have not peed anywhere, but you can just smell that pet odor in the house.

Febreze works great. It even got rid of skunk odor when one sprayed just outside an open window. It took three applications, but it did the job. Set the pan outside just before the people come and maybe set a dish of warm vanilla where it was to help absorb the odor. (10/03/2009)
How do I eliminate pet odor?
You can sprinkle the pet with baking soda, rub it in, then leave it on for a few minutes and then brush/comb. Works great for carpets (home and car), rugs, mattresses, pet beds, and stuffed pet toys. Leave on for at least 30 minutes and then vacuum. For pet toys you can just beat out the baking soda (with a wooden spoon for example).
Our Dollar Tree Store has an excellent pet odor remover that works miracles. Vinegar works too, but I really think the stuff at the Dollar Tree is amazing. (05/02/2008)
I use Odoban. It smells nice and kills germs. Gary D. (05/02/2008)
