Answered
Just found out my lil dog has been peeing on my 5x7 carpet. Any suggestions to get clean and smell out? I flipped it over and sprayed back with dog urine stuff and put backing soda on it. then flipped it over and did the same. Hopefully this will help, but if not? suggestions?

    Vinegar works really well. We have a hybrid cat that liked our spare bedroom in the basement. I sprayed it with vinegar to get the odor out and she even quit using the carpet to pee. I knew then that it worked. Just make sure you use enough to get into all the fibers. Let it sit in the sun to dry if you can, the wind will help as will the sun to reduce the odor. It may take a second try if it didn't get into the fibers all the way down. I didn't get it down enough the first time to get into the padding.

      Sorry for chiming in a bit late to the discussion, but I really feel like I need to add my 2 cents.


      I know how frustrating it must be for you if you have a dog that just won’t learn how to potty outside. You’ve probably tried all sorts of training techniques that you found online or in a book at the library and nothing worked. At least, that’s what happened to me...


      Me and my hubby were able to find a solution and I’ll always be thankful that we did, because since then we have had no problem teaching my foster dogs where to potty – and I can do it within a couple of days.


      I now recommend it to everyone because it works so freakin' well and we save SOO much money!


      Don't waste time sister! The more times your dog goes to the bathroom inside your home the harder it will be to break him of this habit.


      Take action now and permanently stop your dog from using the bathroom inside before it's too late!


      Here's the guide we used that shows you how to completely potty train any dog or puppy quickly and easily in 7 days or less...


      No I have not been paid for this post nor do I make any commissions off of it. I really just want to help you guys out. I hope you don't mind.


      I'm based in Sweden, by the way, so you should be able to get it too.


      Good luck with the odor and the stains! It really lowers your quality of life, doesn't it?

    I have read where vinegar is supposed to neutralize the odor of urine so animal will not come back and go in same spot. Hope this helps.

      Training your dog is the only long-term solution, OP.


      I love my dog so much but it constantly did the things that irked me most. It would chew on things that it shouldn’t or jump up and down out of the blue. Whenever I put on the leash, it would pull on it. Whenever it was out of the house, it would continue digging on the ground - I wish I could tell what it was looking for down there. The same goes for all the nasty urine.


      All the things it did left me feeling depressed as if I failed it monumentally.


      But since I discovered Brain Training for Dogs and applied the system offered, it now behaves the way a beautiful dog I always expect of.

    As it's only 5X7 you could be send it to A professional industrial laundry. Many of them clean carpet runner's and lobby rug's found in office building's.
    What kind of floor is it layer over? If it's wood the urine may have soaked in and that will be more of A problem to remedy.

    Buy a new one. That smell never comes out for the dog and he'll keep using it.

    We use the Natures Miracle Advanced..get the one specific for dogs... . put a potty pad under neath and POUR the NM on the spot... leave til it dries by itself... it destroys the bacteria that causes the smell and the pheromone that attracts them back.... if your little dog insists on going in the house...(if it is wet or snowy out side ... i wouldn't want to go out there either) put a potty pad in a cat box tray... replace the pad at least once per day.
