By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Does your house smell funky? Are you sick of walking into your house and smell dog pee?

Destroy those nasty odors with a homemade solution that actually works!

Anyone who has ever had a puppy or dog has had to deal with accidents.  Whether your pet is older or a new puppy, accidents are bound to happen.  There are many different remedies you can try.  Some work and other so called remedies will actually make your problem worse.  Covering up the smell of dog pee does nothing to discourage your dog from repeatedly marking the area over and over again.  To truely stop your dog from marking, you must completely get rid of the urine odor on your carpet.

The worst thing you could do is to let the pee sit on the carpet.  The urine will continue to soak into the carpet and eventually into the carpet pad.  If you have a larger canine, with a bigger bladder, your carpet pad is probably already wet if there has been an accident.  On the other hand if you have a smaller breed, with a smaller bladder, you will hopefully be able to stop the urine from soaking into the pad.  Reguardless of what sized breed you have, you must get up as much urine from the carpet as possible, while it's still fresh. 

Get a wad of paper towels and put your shoe on.  Blot the paper towel buy putting it between the pee spot and your foot and gently stepping on the paper towel.  Repeat until the paper towel is not longer wet.  Some people prefer to use a dirty towel for blotting up dog urine.  This works just fine, but make sure the towel is dry when you start.

If you have no idea where you dog is marking but smell dog urine in your home, you may need to purchase a black light.  With a black light you will be able to see all the places your pet is marking.  Your dog's secret marking spots will be revealed and then you will be able to destroy the odor from  your carpet.

Most experts recommend mixing equal parts of white vinegar and water with a few drops of dish washing detergent in a large bowl, stiring gently.  Then pour this mixture over the dog pee on your carpet.  Let the solution soak in.  Make sure you pour enough down to completely cover the dog pee spot.  Allow the carpet to dry overnight.  When completely dry, sprinkle baking soda over the spot and gently rub into the carpet with a broom.  Let the baking soda sit on the carpet at least 30 mintues and then vacuum.

This natural solution for dog urine odor removal on carpet may take more than one application.
