Fresh chilled semen can be shipped  worldwide successfully to most destinations due to the new semen extenders.

Try this refresh body spray:  Mix 1 cup witch hazel, 1 cup rubbing alcohol and a few drops of spearmint oil.  Combine in a spray bottle and mist over your dog or horse.  Will not harm animal even under a coat and smells great.  I use it on my horses & dogs all the time for a quick refresh!   Helene
