More an idea to prevention...
new dogs arrive and receive a doggie ‘wrap’ for a 24 ‘test’. Boys get a band that wraps, girls, ones that looks more like a diaper (they are washable/reusable). They absorb urine that a nervous dog may mark in our apartment. Obviously we remove for walks. Usually 24 hrs is a good time to settle into our place. Some dogs always wear ‘protection’ whilst here as we accept dogs with certain challenges. I make the owners aware prior. This has greatly reduced clean up and we have never faced resistance from owners. It’s all in the way we communicate, with consideration and with facts.
All the best! 🍀
Nature's Miracle FTW! I have wood floors, which helps a lot with cleanup, but Resolve High Traffic and Oxyclean work great for upholstery and carpets. Make sure you neutralize the odor with an enzyme cleaner, or other dogs will try to "mark the territory" and you'll have a pee target on your hands 😣
Number one is don’t have carpet! Second nature’s miracle is awesome like everybody has been saying make sure you follow the directions let it soak etc. I’m top of all this not just dog urine it’s the dog smell I clean my floors with a mixture of vinegar and alcohol a couple times a day I also have a hydrogen Prock side cleaner that I cleaned at least once a week with. And the laundry… I have covers on my couches and I have an autumn and they have covers I have my own dog mats and the dog toys that always gets run through the wash machine at least once a week usually two or three times.
I have to absolutely say I have been doing this for 2 1/2 almost 3 years now and laundry and cleaning is the key there are days when it’s rainy out that my House does smell like dog. But while you may be tempted to use fragrances candles coverups the biggest key is just to clean. Dog wipes or even a rag with diluted vinegar on it will kill any smells also work wonderful when they’re coming in because as we all know dogs like to roll and nasty stinky stuff outside.
I use both Odorban and Membermark (sam's Club) lemon disinfectant to do most of the cleaning. I used Natures Miracle for over 20 years and it does a good job. Clorox came out with their own urine remover and that's what I use now because it's cheaper, works well amd smells better to me.
Since we're on the topic of Pet Supplies, PetSmart will Price Match items on chewy.com. More often than not, the prices on chewy.com are cheaper than PetSmart in-store prices. If you show the cashier, they should honor the lower price. In fact, PetSmart bought out Chewy.com, so they are merging companies together. Hope that helps!
