Vapet Get Off Spray
Disadvantages: Doesn't really work
I have two rescue dogs, house training was a bit of a struggle at first due to their backgrounds and their difficulty adjusting so there were a fair few accidents in the early days and even now its still an occasional occurrence.
I needed a product that would clean up the mess well enough so that the dogs weren't tempted to 'remark' their territory, and I also needed a product that would put them off and repel them from weeing in places they weren't supposed to. 'Wash and Get Off' claimed to be able to do both, and was fairly reasonably priced at less than £5.
Unfortunately, its been about as much use as spraying water on the carpet! It doesn't clean particularly well, I use Stardrops and hot water instead now. It also doesn't seem to work at all as a repellent, maybe the smell isn't strong enough to put them off their favourite spots. Another downside is that while the smell doesn't seem to achieve the desired effect its really strong and pungent and lingers for days and days and, to be honest, its not much better than the smell of dog urine, which at least has the benefit of being easy to get rid of, in comparison. I hated having the smell of this spray getting up my nose for days on end.
I don't use this anymore, in fact I don't use any 'repellent' product as having tried a few I'm not convinced any of them actually do any good, not for my stubborn little dogs at least! I wouldn't waste your money, a far better investment is to spend some time on really really intensive house training and a much cheaper cleaning product for the inevitable occasional mishaps.
Summary: Waste of money, and it stinks!
