Most of our friends say the house doesn't smell. We clean. We use pet deoderizer on the carpet and fabreeze on the furniture and we've had the windows open the last week.
I really think she was just trying to find something to complain about. Or maybe because she doesn't have dogs, she did detect an odor. But as for "reeking"??? Our home doesn't reek. We bathe the animals and we keep our home clean. She's just being a witch right now.
So I'm not too concerned about the "dog smell". Once everything is moved out, we will shampoo the carpets and deoderize them.
My neighbor who doesn't own dogs said that she didn't smell anything and both neighbors said they would be happy to come over and look at the house once it's clean and be willing to say in writing that they saw us leave it clean. We have our bases covered. Now if the landlord would just get back on her broom and fly back to Nevada like she said she was doing.
