Dogs bring us so much love and joy, but sometimes they also bring us pee on the carpet in the house. Whether it be because you have a new puppy who's learning to go potty outside but hasn't totally caught on just yet, or because your dog is in the senior or geriatric stage of his life and can't quite hold it as long as he used to, accidents happen.

So you have a pee stain on your carpet. Now what? If you are like most people, you clean it. But did you know that not only should you clean urine stains, but you should also try your best to remove the urine odor from the carpet as well? After all, if you can smell dog urine on your carpet, so can your dog. And if they smell it, chances of them peeing in that spot again are highly likely.

Here at Woody's Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary, we've had our fair share of accidents on the carpet and have pretty much become masters at removing the urine stain and smell. Want to learn how we do it? Then check out this video with step-by-step instructions on how to clean a urine stain and remove the urine smell so your carpet will be like new.



We use Millie Mats to cover the accident after it's cleaned while the treated area is drying. We also use Millie Mats to put under any of our incontinent dogs.

Millie mats are very absorbent and reusable.

Mix 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar, one cup of warm water, and five to eight drops of peppermint essential oil in the spray bottle.
