How To Train Your Dog Not To Pee In The House!

Aug 18, 2007
What is best in removing dog urine stains? Many people have different remedies.

How we love those lovable dogs and their cute and clever antics. How we love the way they play fetch and run and jump and roll around and lick us affectionately and then just tinkle all over the nice new carpet!

I have to love them tinkling all over the carpet? We sure do not love that aspect of dog ownership,but it is part of the training.

It can take some time, but dogs can be housebroken and trained to let their owners know when they need to go outside and make a little weedle or some other bigger job.

It is just that sometimes are babies forget and get all confused and think that mommy or daddy won't mind if the interior of your home becomes Rovers marked territory.

The stains and smells of your dogs little mishaps and dishonorable discharges can leave a lasting impression on rugs and carpets, furniture, and other items in your home if they are not taken care of immediately.

If you are fortunate enough to catch your dog in the act of relieving himself all over the Persian rug that was a gift from your mother-in-law, then take the steps that have to do with the dogs training and then attend to the poodle puddle right away.

Use a rag or some paper towels to soak up as much of the mess as possible and then clean the area with a mixture of cold or lukewarm (never use hot) water and some sort of cleaning agent.

Peroxide works well at removing the chance of a stain as well as the odor, but it should not be used on certain fabrics or dyes.

A dab of dishwashing liquid (the kind you use in the sink, not the dishwasher) mixed with water can do a good job on these fresh marks as well.

For stains that have been allowed to sit for a time you will need to take slightly more drastic measures. Organic cleansers like Spot Shot work best on stains like these and should be chosen over chemicals.

If you do use chemicals, peroxide is your friend once again as it can act as a terrific stain remove, again you will want to dilute with warm water and apply it to the area.

Some scrubbing will be necessary, but it should be done as gently as possible, depending on the type of fabric.

If we are talking about carpet, some vigorous scrubbing will probably be okay as the fibers are designed to take a bit of a beating.

If the soiled items are washable fabrics like clothing, towels, or small throw rugs, the stains should come out in the wash.

Put the item in the washer by itself with the regular laundry detergent that you would normally use and some color safe bleach (whites can and should be done with regular chlorine bleach).

The best way to deal with doggie urine stains is to avoid having them happen in the first place, which can be accomplished through careful and meticulous training.

If the occasional whoopsie does happen, do not lose your cool about it. Just go ahead and deal with the dog in the appropriate manner and rest easy in the knowledge that, in most cases, pee washes out. Hope these
techniques help you.
