Is there a safe way to discourage my little dogs from wetting carpet?

I have 2 older pugs and they have health issues due to age. I put area rugs down for them to have a comfy place to lay, but they have wet on both the rugs and I’m cleaning the arrest every week. Help? I don’t want chemicals that might hurt the pups or rugs. Help?

    Have you tried the puppy pads to see if they will go there instead of the rugs? Then all you have to do is toss it in the trash.

    Go to Chewy.com for THE best prices on puppy pads. On auto deliver and they come to the door. Also confine them to small area when you leave the house. That's when my senior dog is the most likely to do his business in the house. Buddy bands for peeling boys. chewy has great prices on all that stuff. Good luck!

    If this is a bladder issue, they probably know they shouldn't be wetting in the house, so take them outside to pee every hour. In the meantime, get Nature's Miracle, made for dogs, that has an enzyme in it to get rid of the smell so they stop peeing there. This is made for dogs, so won't hurt them.

    they may have bladder stones if they can't hold it. you can try diapers and taking them out often! We had a blind dog and as long as we were diligent to take him out (he sat in a chair and couldn't get down so we had to carry him outside). If we were diligent he didn't have and accidents. If we forgot he'd pee in my chair!!
