Dogs bring us so much love and joy, but some times 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 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 stain, you should also try your best to remove the urine odor from the carpet as well. After all, if you can smell dog urine in 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 not only removing the urine stain but also the urine smell as well. 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.



Update: We now use Millie Mats to cover the accident after it's cleaned while it's drying. We also use Millie Mats to put under any of our dogs how are incontinent.

Millies mats are very absorbent and reusable.

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