How do I get the smell of dog pee out of my carpet?

I have cleaned our carpets twice this week and in one spot it still smells really bad and I am out of ideas on what to do. We just got rid of the dog that kept peeing there and now the other dog we have is peeing there to "mark her spot" and I want to get rid of the smell so she will quit.

  • You can't. Dog piss is impossible to get rid of.

  • Why do you think they use their pee to mark their territory? Because it doesn't go away.

  • Baking Soda. Sprinkle it over the carpet and let it set. You can even try baking soda and water .. then vacuum it up.

  • pee is not impossible to get rid of! Use a deep cleaner, like the bissell heat pro they are abot 200 dollars at walmart, with the pet solutin that goes with it! I clean mine every week but i am a neat but i have two dogs and when they were training i never had to deal with it due to my wonderful carpet cleaner!

  • I personally have always used the enzyme cleaners and my carpet shampooer. However they usually only lasted so long. My friend tried this product because her rottie was horrible at marking his spot all over the house. She said this one worked really well and you don't need a deep cleaner for it. They have a guarentee as well.

  • I use Out! in my carpet cleaner & pre-treat the spot. It's available at Walmart in the pet aisle.
