It’s important that you keep the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor to a minimum in your home. If you’re trying to do such a thing, you must take steps to solve the problem. What do you think is causing the smells? Do you think they’re deriving from the crappy potty pad (no pun intended), or do you think it’s because you let your dog sleep on the couch? Well, we can guarantee that your home won’t smell like lilies and roses if you have an insufficient potty pad, which is only one reason we suggest you give Doggie Lawn’s dog potty grass a shot. It’s all natural and absorbs odor. Now, if you already use our dog potty grass product and you still get hit in the face with an odor you wish wasn’t there when you walk through the front door, it’s time to take extra steps. In our previous post, we gave readers some benefits of using baking soda around the house to get rid of the “We own a dog!”, smell. Catch up by reading about how to sprinkle baking soda and make a baking soda spray to eliminate odors. Meanwhile, here are more ways to eliminate the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor.

How to get rid of the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor:

Neutralizing Odor Remover Sometimes baking soda can’t remove all smells that are soaked in the deep depths of couches, carpet fibers and blankets. However, a neutralizing agent like the Anti-Icky Poo Odor Remover can. If you have a dog that you’re training to go to the bathroom on dog potty grass, and they still have an accident every now and then, it’s okay! Although you may be thinking, “Bad dog!”, the chances of you being able to clean up and get rid of the odor are pretty high.

Remove animal waste.

If you have a dog who hasn’t quite caught on to the dog potty grass, make sure you thoroughly clean and/or soak up the urine/feces with paper towels. You should try to remove as much liquid as possible, then clean the area with water. Let the water soak and clean up the wet mess once again. After the water has been soaked up and the area is dry, spray the neutralizing odor remover over the affected area.

Consider using tools.

Sometimes the work of humans can’t remove all of the stains and smells, so we recommend renting a carpet extractor or wet vac to do the trick; however, it’s crucial that you avoid using an in-home steam cleaner because this can solidify the smell in your carpet. Instead, use an extracting device made for pulling out accidents gifted to you from your pet. Once the extractor or wet vac has been used and the carpet is dry, spray the neutralizing odor remover onto the affected area. If the odor is still there after you remove the animal waste and use tools... If you’re feeling like nothing is working to get the stench of your pet’s accident out of the carpet, it may be time to check the carpet pad. Sometimes pet urine will go far beyond the carpet, and that means soaking into any material underneath. Once you lift the carpet back, try our remove animal waste or consider using tools tips.

The neutralizer.

The neutralizer that you choose should be pet specific and intended to remove any animal odor. Remember, this product could be used for not only animal urine and feces, but also vomit. Make sure that you’re following the directions on the neutralizer you choose.

The dog grass pad is beneficial for dog odors.

If you’re suffering from odors caused from owning a dog, it may be time that you take a look at not just your dog, but where they do their business. If you’re using an old fashioned paper potty pad, it’s time for an upgrade. Those types of mats are not sufficient enough to hold your pet’s urine and/or feces. Instead, you’ll be dealing with a mess and smells that will become harder and harder to cover up. We highly recommend that you give our dog grass potty a try. We try to make your life easy which is why we send out weekly, monthly or bi-monthly grass pads for your dog. Plus, if your dog already knows how to use a potty pad, training them to use something natural that has a recognizing smell will be easier!
