Is your dog still going on the floor? Getting dog urine out of your carpet doesn’t have to be hard, but you’ll need to act quickly. Dog urine that is allowed to dry will not only stain the carpet, but will make it easier for harmful bacteria to start multiplying. The following are ways to get dog urine odor out of the carpet to prevent future repeat incidents.
NOTE: ** Several complained on here that the shampooer only comes with a “tiny” bottle of the solution. The free bottle that came with mine was a 24 ozs. bottle. It says on the bottle to use 4 capfuls of the solution per tank of water, but the instructions that came with the machine as well as the larger bottle of solution that I bought in anticipation of receiving a “tiny” bottle, say to only use one capful. The cap holds 2 ozs. of solution. That is all I have used in the machine so far and it seems to work perfectly. I would think that you would be able to get several uses out of the bottle at that rate before you have to purchase a new bottle, BUT that having been said, if you use the 4 capfuls as the bottle suggests, then you would only get 6 uses out of the one bottle. That having been said, if you are concerned you will run out before you finish carpets in your home, buy a bottle when you buy the machine or before it arrives. 🙂 ****
this little dog keeps sneaking off and using it in the house. .. after being outside with the other dogs… I keep smelling urine…. I can’t stand it..I tried vinegar. ..is there such a thing to detour them from using it in the house. .??????
Urine that is normal and healthy shouldn’t have a strong smell. However, sometimes you may find it does have a strong odor or that it smells of ammonia. Sometimes, it could even smell very sweet. All of these could be symptoms of an underlying medical condition that needs treating.1
I foster dogs in addition to owning two of my own, so I have a lot of pups going through my house. Since they’re rescues and often times come from places where they haven’t even started on potty training, I have a lot of accidents in my house. And I do mean a lot. Pretty much everything you could imagine that could come out of either end of dog has probably ended up on my carpet at some point or another. Come spring time my backyard also turns into a mud pit, and I have dogs tearing in from the backyard tracking who knows what all over the place. In short, stain removers are a must at my house, and not only do they have to get the stain, but the smell as well. Unfortunately, it took me awhile to catch on to the fact that I could make my own and that they would work just as well as the dozen or so other expensive cleaners I’d tried before. Mud, blood, number 1 or number 2, here are 3 natural DIY solutions to keeping up on pet stains and odors.
Thus, if you’re a woman who has been noticing a fishy smell coming from your urine, this unpleasant fishy odor is actually emanating from your vagina, and you should be checked by your gynecologist for a vaginal infection.
Important. Never use ammonia or ammonia-based products on the carpet to remove pet pee. One of the ingredients of urine is ammonia and your dog or puppy may well be encouraged to re-offend in the same area if it detects the smell of ammonia. Many household cleaner cleaners contain ammonia so be sure to read the label.
Re-wet the spot with water. After you’ve lifted the towel, pour a small amount of cold water over the spot again. Start pouring just outside the perimeter of the stain, slowly moving toward the center. This will prevent the water from spreading the urine out into an even wider circle. Allow the water to work through the stain for about a minute.

I had this same problem with my elderly miniature poodle. The only thing that has worked is a mild sedative, Acepromazine, at bedtime and putting a diaper on her. I might have to keep a diaper on her 24/7 because even though I watch her almost continually she still urinates in the house occasionally. The night time solution came after consultation with her vet. I never tried putting her in a crate, beside the bed at night, this might work. Since your dog is young as compared to my 15 year old dog, I would try the crate thing first. Good luck!
I have 2 older poms, Bear is 10 and had a bad time for several months of drinking every drop of water, several times a day and then constantly having accidents all over the house. And every time I took them out, he went a lot! First vet visit I was told that his urine was too watered to tell if he had any infection. Then told they wanted him brought back for expensive testing to check for cushings disease. Since I couldn’t afford $500-$1000 in testing medications, I decided to change their dry food to something more reputable. Since taking them off just 6 and on to nature’s balance then blue wilderness (slightly more affordable) Bear is doing great! Maybe 2-3 accidents in last 5 months! (That may have been my fault for not getting them outside for too long) I am not trying to talk bad about any vets or food labels, I just want to share this experience because it may be helpful to someone.

In the absence of other symptoms, such as pain with urination, cloudy or dark urine color, or unusual frequency of urination, there is usually little reason for concern. But reccurring ammonia odor in pregnancy should still be brought to a doctor’s attention.
Freshen the air. Whether your house is plagued with pet odors or not, air fresheners can always sweeten your home’s scent. Pick a commercial freshener, or make your own. Either way, you’ll have a ton of options, from warm vanilla to fresh citrus. When you opt for commercial sprays, gels, or plug-ins, make sure they’re specially formulated to be safe for pets. Spray it around the house to freshen the air.
The first step is to grab a length of around six sheets of kitchen roll, fold this into a six sheet thick square and press it down onto the wet area of the carpet with your foot. Repeat with fresh kitchen roll until the area is as dry as you can get it.
I bought this awesome machine on 8-14-2017 I absolutely love it , works super well on the high traffic areas hallways and the whole carpet for that matter , I like the fact that it keeps the water pretty hot I was looking for a carpet cleaner to clean my carpets they were pretty dirty and not cleaned for 2 years and it made them look new after I was done its easy to setup and use I love the attachments and its easy to drain the waste water tank and replace it back where it goes the machine is not heavy for me and it is easy to push and its not as loud as many other machines I have had in the past and the price was in my budget I got it on sale at local Walmart for $172.22 so I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great carpet cleaner
Then pour on Natures Miracle or The Simple Solution. (commercial products that can be purchased in most pet stores). Here is the trick, you must cover more than double the stained area when you pour on the product to ensure it soaks into the padding. Then walk away and allow to soak in and dry.
5. Super easy to clean for storage after use . The machine comes apart very easy and it is also easy to remove the beater bar/brush on the floor/front and rinse it out to remove all of that cat/dog hair from my many pets. I have A LOT of hair each time I use it. Simply run it under the faucet and everything rinses out. It also tells you in the instructions to use it with hot water cycle through at the end before you store it for a long period of time. I do this with my Little Green Machine, too, but not quite what they are telling you to do, so don’t do what I do because it isn’t what they are telling you to do. I set a bowl in the sink, turn the faucet on to hot tap water, run the water in the bowl, then stick the nozzle into the bowl and let it suck up clean water until the tank fills-empty, repeat, empty repeat, until the dirty water tank is running clear. That gets the soap and residue out of the lines along the way on both my Little Green as well as this machine, using the hand held hose attachment. You can remove the beater bar VERY EASILY and run it under the faucet to clear it from the soap, hair, etc. It only weighs 2 pounds, tops. Super easy to clean.
However, if you do want to use the hydrogen peroxide, make sure you only ever use 3% solution and that you always check for color-fastness on an inconspicuous area first as it could bleach the fibers of the carpet, leaving a permanent light patch as a reminder of the accident!
We have an apartment also and I’ve wondered about what they’re going to do with this carpet when we move out, because our pet deposit is too small to be enough to replace all the carpet… BUT we do use baking soda/vinegar mixture on it to clean then vinegar sprayed on top out of a spray bottle. Seems to work well, and she doesn’t go to the same spots every time, it seems pretty random.
It is also a good idea to empty the bladder completely when urinating, to avoid remnants of urine dripping on to clothing. Wiping well and rinsing with water, if needed, after urinating can also minimize the bacteria that cause infections and ammonia-smelling urine.
I just wanted to say ” thank you 🙂 “. . I tried the recipe for stain pet and odor remover in the carpet of a car that I just got. The car was so smelly 🙁 . few days ago I tried a remover that I bought in a retail store and nothing , the strong odor was still there 🙁 . now , the odor is gone 🙂 , I used the recipe # 1 , I love it , it is easy to prepare 😉 .
CR’s take: The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 has front-to-back sliding brushes instead of rotational brushes, like other carpet cleaners, similar to the commercial version of the Rug Doctor you can rent. It’s relatively heavy at 43 pounds and takes 3 gallons of water to fill its tank—easily adding up to 25 pounds to its weight—and wasn’t very intuitive when our testers went to fill it up. It does have a long hose, at 155 inches, so you won’t have to lug it at every turn, and its dryness score is Excellent. But unless you have a lot of carpet to clean and plan to clean often, you might want to consider a lighter model.
It is important to pee when you feel the urge. Delaying urination can cause bladder overdistension — like overstretching a Slinky such that it can’t bounce back. You may habitually postpone urination if you find bathroom breaks inconvenient at work, or if you have Paruresis (also known as Shy Bladder Syndrome, Bashful Bladder, Tinkle Terror, or Pee Anxiety), the fear of urinating in the presence of others. Seven percent of the public suffers from this condition.10
Wow. All I can say is, wow! I am amazed at how well this worked. I had given up hope on ever getting the urine smell from a large, expensive wool rug in our living room. It was dreadful no matter how many times we cleaned it, even with an industrial cleaning machine. I cannot believe how fresh it smells now. I wish I had found this years ago! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing!
