There is nothing like the companionship you get from a dog. They are loyal and caring. The relationship can go south real quick when that beloved pet is constantly having accidents in your home. This leaves your home smelling foul and leaves unsightly stains all over your floors. If you are at the end of your rope, and don’t know where to turn to fix your problem, Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some tips to help you get your pet used to going outside to use the bathroom.
Retraining Your Dog to Pee Outside
If you have an older dog, it was probably trained at some point. There are several reasons why a dog may start having accidents in the house again; so you may want to start thinking about reverting back to the training game to try and fix the problem. You may have to start at the very beginning and finish all the steps before you see the results you are looking for.
Take Your Dog Outside More Often to Urinate
When your dog is having accidents in the house, you may want to start taking them out for more potty breaks. This means that every time they eat or drink, you will want to take them out to see if they need to go to the bathroom. Also be vigilant in taking them outside every time they wake up from a nap. It can be helpful to give them a treat every time they potty outside so that they get used to going outside again.
Figure Out Why Dog is Peeing on Carpet
If you have an older dog, there is likely a reason that your pet is having accidents all of a sudden. Sometimes there is an underlying health concern that is causing incontinence. If your dog is having accidents because of an issue like this, you need to remember that it isn’t your dog’s fault and he/she can’t control it. Medication can be helpful when this is the problem. If your dog is peeing on purpose, this is an entirely different situation and you can possibly get some tips from your vet.
Clean Pet Accidents on Carpet Properly
Dealing with pet stains and odors is no fun. It is important that when these accidents do happen, you are cleaning up the mess properly. When a dog urinates, it’s the acidity of the urine that will then change as it dries and odor causing bacteria starts to form. You need to be using an enzymatic cleaner to get rid of the urine in your carpet. If a dog can smell the urine, they will automatically think it’s okay to continue to use your home as a place to pee.
