Dog Pee on My Carpet- How to Get the Smell Out

Bailey is pretty much trained but still has "accidents". I think that a lot of it has to do with the fact that he smells where he's soiled before and does it again. I can smell the pee in one room, despite having steam cleaned the carpet. I can't take it any more. I need something that will completely remove the smell.

Any suggestions would be great. Home treatments or store bought ones, as long as they work and work well.

Thanks!!

@Bella Dea,
I use a Bissell product that is specially for removing the urine scent...Haven't had a problem since I cleaned up with that - Biscuit was horrible at having accidents in the house when she was a puppy...now that she is trained when she is inside she doesn't even smell those places.

Arm & Hammer makes a product that actually works. It's their carpet stink remover for pets and comes in a tall yellow box. It's available in most supermarkets and pet stores. I also like a non-toxic product made by Beaumont Products. It's a spray called "Pet Odor Eliminator". I get it on-line at Citrusmagic dot com. Good place for natural cleaning products.

If the carpet keeps getting saturated, nothing will get the smell out and you will have to replace the rug. Dogs have such a keen sense of smell that I don't think it is possible to cover it enough that they can't smell it. Either the dog will learn to pee outside or he will continue to use the carpet as a toilet.

@Bella Dea,
Most pet stores have stain and odor remover products. We keep some around for those times when the dog has an accident from one end or the other. It works great on fresh problems. I'm not so sure how it will work on an old problem.

If the dog intentionally peed on carpet and you didn't catch it right away, it has probably seeped into the pad under the carpet. Standard steam cleaning isn't going to get the smell out of the pad. You may need to pull the carpet back and clean or replace the padding in that area.

@mismi,
Been there, done that. There are still places that smell. I sniffed around down on the floor and found a few areas.

Arg. Yes, this is an old problem. As in, we thought we got it but we didn't. We cannot replace the carpets, that's just not financially an option. This sucks.

@Bella Dea,
i just steam clean the carpet over and over and over and over.


(thi brings up the recent memory of the ******* IDIOTS AT MY GMAS HOUSE that let their dogs use their "old" room as the potty place, the floor was wood and when we pulled the carpet there was a black spot about 2 1/2 feet wide of rotten wood)

yeah, but anyway, steam clean it once, do it again right after, then i go back the next day after it dries and do it again.

and again

and again.



if its bad it prolly wont work.

;D

@OGIONIK,
Right now, we clean the carpets about every 2 weeks. So it's not due to lack of cleaning.

I love and hate that dog.

@OGIONIK,
I think it's because the steam cleaner isn't getting down far enough. I think there is pee in the padding. Sad

Is it possible he is marking? He doesn't pee on things, like the side of the couch or anything. He just pees on the floor.

He is neutered.

@Bella Dea,
Hard to know what a dog is thinking, but it's possible because of the other dog and the baby. He might be claiming his space and he seems very stubborn about this bad behavior, which is an alpha trait.

@Bella Dea,
Make the "accident zone" unattractive and/or unavailable to your pet and the appropriate "bathroom" area attractive as a way to retrain your pet. Then use positive reinforcement techniques to show him the appropriate place to eliminate.

As long as your pet can smell his personal scent, he'll continue to return to the "accident zone." Even if you can't smell traces of urine, your pet can.

@Bella Dea,
A. Replace your carpet flooring with hardwood or tile, anything similar flooring.

B. Invest in lots of lysol. Lysol sprays. Candles. Etc.

C. Purchase pads. Train your critter to use the pads.

D. Train your critter to use the great outdoors. ((But if you don't want your critter outdoors then omit this option.))

E. All of the above.

Wow. Saw this old thread pop up and thought I'd tell you all what happened. We ended up getting hard wood floors, for one. And after having hired a trainer and ruled out medical issues, we finally pinned down anxiety. Bailey was/is an anxious dog. He was having separation anxiety. He couldn't be contained in a crate all day because he would lose his **** on a daily basis. Drool everywhere, once bent the bars of the crate to get out, scratch marks on the bottom. It was cruel to leave him in there. But we got him on medication and after a week or so, he slowly got better. With positive reinforcement, training and patience he's *almost* a normal dog. He is particularly attached to me. He follows me around still. Just recently he began to sometimes sleep in a separate room from me. Now he's not medicated all the time now. Just when I know we'll have people over (kids party) or if there is something stressful happening at home.

But the pee never came out until we threw it out the door. Wink

@Bella Dea,
Is this the same dog who had a stocking that he ate hanging out of his butt?

I'll never get that picture out of my mind. One of life's great moments.

I don't recall a stocking....but I do recall several plastic bags out of Zoe's butt.

Zoe was the non-food eater.
