Are incense bad for dogs?

We all love our little furry creatures and we do anything to keep them safe and happy because they are an important member of the family.

Let’s be honest, dogs are not a big fan of anything that smokes. It confuses their senses of smell that they rely on.

If you do however love incense and want to burn it around your house, then I recommend burning your favourite incense sticks…

  • in rooms or spaces which your pets are not in.
  • for a few minutes just to scent the house and stubbing it out so it doesn’t give off too much smoke. You still have the beautiful aroma but less smoke.
  • in the evening when your pets tucked into there beds and are fast asleep.
  • in the garden or by a window so the scent gently comes instead without too much smoke.
  • when your pets are out on their walks/in the garden.

That’s also applies to the question ‘Are incense bad for cats?’ as well. Despite their differences, cats and dogs share a sensitivity to strong scents.

I hope that helps 🙂

Peace, love & light,
