      Exclamation Removing the urine and poop smell

      There is a topic similar here Nature's Miracle vs. Vinegar but it says I am not allowed to post there! What a shame

      Anyway, my 11 weeks old girl haven't been housebroken yet. She is doing her business on the accidental spots. It seems that I fail removing the odor.

      There is no Nature's Miracle on the market in my country. Vinegar doesn't seem to work for me. What do you suggest me? I heard someone uses this Lysol thing. What is Lysol? Does it work? Because I can find it here.

      Nature's Miracle is an enzyme cleaner that helps to remove pet odors and stains. There are other enzyme cleaners for pet odors here that have other names, so if you can find any enzyme cleaner or neutralizer for pet odors there, I'd try that first. If you have pet stores that sell dog food and toys, you could check there. Lysol is just a strongly scented general cleaning solution not specifically designed to eliminate pet odors. Although to a human nose, it might cover the odor, your little pup can still smell her scent.

      If you can open this link, this is an article posted on the website of the Humane Society that discusses removing odors from a variety of surfaces. Maybe it will be helpful.

      I would check pet stores. You want an enzymatic cleaner. Bissell makes one also.
      If you have carpet, I would strongly suggest getting a Bissell Little Green steam cleaner or a Spot Bot. It works amazingly well on poop on carpets, pee, vomit, etc.

      You might want to reconsider your housebreaking routine if she is having frequent accidents. Mine have all peed a few times, but usually only a half or less of a pee because I am always RIGHT THERE to pick them up and carry them out. Also, I try not to give them the opportunity to pee in the house, by taking them out after every nap, during and after play sessions, and after drinking.

      Unless you count upset tummies, between my two there have been exactly two poop incidents. Poop is easier because they generally have to go after meals. Sometimes more, but often it is just during that time.

      In order to housebreak them quickly and effectively, you are going out all the time and when you cannot be there, crating them, but not for long periods. If you are home, you are watching them like a hawk or they are crated. As soon as they are sniffing or making a move to squat, you scoop them up and take them out. But, try not to wait until they are sniffing and squatting, try to stay ahead of the game.

      Yeah the problem is in my housebreaking routine. :/ I couldn't set up a particular potty spot at first. Changed her spot 3 times due to the house conditions. The other problem is that I couldn't remove the urine and poop odor completely :/ Do these enzymatic odor removers neutralize old smells?
