Today we are going to talk about different ways to clean up puppy accidents. As a dog owner, I am sure you already know that urine or feces that is left around for a certain amount of time (even as little as a few minutes) will cause several problems. Naturally, there is the odor which can remain even after the mess is cleaned up. And then there is the stain.
Urine and feces can stain many surfaces, but inside, the carpet is usually the victim. Finally, there is the byproduct of the odor, which acts like an all clear signal to your dog or puppy to repeat the process in the same spot. And trust me, you don’t want this.
The first principle of cleaning dog accidents is to do it right away. If the accidents happens on a hard surface it will be easier to clean up. Put on some gloves, and with a towel try to soak up or pick up as much as possible. Follow up with a household cleaner that is safe to use on that particular type of flooring.
If the accident happens on a carpet again speed is the key. Get up as much as you can but try not to scrub and push it into the material deeper down. Use an enzymatic cleaner which work great. The enzymes will work over the coming days to break the matter down and take care of both the stain and the odor. This stuff it’s like a dream and it’s definitely a must have.
Remember not to punish your dog after an accident. It’s not his fault. Make sure that he is being taken out frequently enough and that you are watching closely for signals that he needs to use the bathroom. Never rub his nose in an accident, he won’t understand what you are trying to say to him and all you will do is upset him and stress him out the next time his urge hits.
Taking care of puppy accidents in time is just as important as buying essentials such as dog food or a good dog pen. Remember that your dog is your best friend and making sure that he gets everything he needs in order to live a healthy and happy life is one of the most fulfilling things that you can do.
