Oftentimes, your dog or puppy will
not have the courtesy of telling you
that they have fouled your carpet.
After all, not every dog is Lassie
(“Timmy, Timmy. I just peed in the
family room!”) Here’s a little
known fact. Urine is visible with a
black light. Pet stores actually sell
small black lights for the specific
purpose of seeking out dog pee.
Just turn out the lights, hang up
some psychedelic posters, turn on
the Pink Floyd, and go!
As much as we love them, dogs will occasionally
empty their bladders in our homes and create a bit of
an unpleasant odor on the carpet. There is a very
simple remedy for the resultant smell. First, blot up
the excess urine with paper towels. Then rub in a
water/vinegar mixture into the area and blot again.
Next, sprinkle baking soda over the spot and scrub in
hydrogen peroxide with a dash of dish soap. There
are commercially available products that mimic the
solutions of this step-by-step process, but you really
can do it yourself. Good luck getting rid of dog urine

Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
Sprinkle a good amount of baking soda over the area when
it has dried. Squirt a small amount of dish soap into one half
cup of hydrogen peroxide and slowly pour the solution over
the baking soda. Work quickly to massage the mixture into
the carpet, again using a brush to work deep down into the
fibers. Blot up the extra moisture and allow it to dry. There
will be a resultant film which can easily be vacuumed. Note:
You should apply the hydrogen peroxide solution to an
inconspicuous part of your carpet to make sure it does not
stain the fabric.
The first step to removing dog urine smell
is to remove as much of the urine as possible.
Place several paper towels over the area and step on them. Repeat this
process until all of the excess liquid is gone.

You will have a better chance of removing dog urine smell if you work fast. It
may be a good idea to have some commercial dog urine products on hand just in
case you don’t have all the home based products readily available. Dog urine
products are available online and at all pet stores. After all, dog and puppy pee
is a pretty common occurrence.
Dogs are a lot like people with
their bathroom habits. Males are
slobs and will pee almost anywhere
on your lawn, while females like to
urinate in the same spot over and
over again. This constant habit will
kill your grass due to excess
nitrogen. The overall damage to
your lawn is minimal. Give the area
a good soaking with the garden
hose to dilute the pee and then
overseed the area. Training your
dog to pee in an unobtrusive part of
your yard is a good long term
Vinegar and Water
Make a mixture of half household vinegar and half water.
Apply the solution liberally into your carpet and work down to
the bottom of the fibers. Use a scrubbing brush to make sure
that you are effectively penetrating the area. The vinegar
neutralizes the ammonia in the dog urine and it must come into
contact with the urine to work. Blot the area again or use a wet
vac to remove the excess moisture.
Store Bought Products
Never, repeat, never use ammonia based products to clean up dog urine. Urine
contains ammonia, and the smell of the cleanser based ammonia will remind little
Fido that this was a preferred rest stop and he will repeat his little accident
there again and again.
Do Not Use Ammonia
