    My neighbor has 2 large dogs and he shovels the poop into a large bucket and it stinks to high heaven?? I don't want to cause an argument but I can't even go outside!! what can I do and does anyone else suffer from sensitive smells

    Hi Teenichinsd, and welcome!
    I have a very sensitive nose, too, I can smell mold where others say, "no, there's nothing wrong here."

    Do you have a good relationship with your neighbor? Can you ask him to move the poop bucket? Tell him the smell triggers headaches (or whatever the smell does to you) and you'd appreciate if he'd help with your situation. I'm sure he'd move it if he knew how adversely it effected you.
