I would like to plant some flowers with a strong fragrance around my dogs pen for obvious reasons. I would be planting in both full sun and partial shade. Someone suggested a flowering tobacco plant. What is it and would it do the trick? Or what would you suggest.

Carnations have a strong fragrance, as do herbs like spearmint and peppermint. Flowering tobacco, Nicotiana, has tubular shaped flowers with nice fragrance. If you have room, lilac shrubs bloom in the spring with a wonderful fragrance, as do Buddleia, the Butterfly Bush. If you only have room for annuals and perennials, try Sweet violet, Chocolate cosmos, Ipomoea (Moonflower), Peony and Summer phlox. Hope this information is helpful.
