Tomato Juice

I live on 40 acres of land by a river and there is all sorts of wildlife. So, of course my Australian Cattle Dog puppy is going to try and get every possible thing she can. She's been really into skunks lately and the smell is just awful! The first thing I used was a gallon of tomato juice and let it sit. IT DID NOT WORK! Not only did she smell like skunk, but she also smelled like tomato juice. Yuck! So, the next thing I tried was the 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 qt. of 3% hydrogen peroxide, warm water, and her regular shampoo. That did not work either. Now I am going to add the applejuice vinegar and see what happens. But, I do not recommend the tomato juice idea at all!!
