My dog goes to the bathroom in the front of my house on the cement steps and on the bushes and I can't get rid of the smell. I tried cleaning the steps with bleach, but I think the smell is also in the bushes.

I have finally found something that works great and it gets the smell out completely even deep down in the carpet to the bottom. You take equal parts of distilled vinegar and water, make sure you clean the area first to get up the stain and such. Then spray the solution over the spot and get it good and wet. It will smell like vinegar for a day, maybe 2. Let it air dry and then you should not have the smell anymore. It may take a couple of doses. I have had a dog for 2 years and she pees off and on. When we redid our carpets the stain was under the backing, but no smell what so ever. Hope this helps. Plus it's a great room deodorizer for anyone with smokers and things. (05/18/2007)
If you want to stop fooling around with dog urine odor and probably stop your dog from going back to the same spot again and again, eliminate the odor completely. Odorxit is the the only stuff I know of that really eliminates the odor enough that even the hyper dog nose can't smell it. (06/06/2007)
Just FYI, Simple Solution, Nature's Miracle, and the vinegar all did not work for me. I will try out the baking soda. (05/16/2008)
I have a large home and no kids and so I don't go to every room in my house all the time. Well, I rescued 2 more dogs (a total of 4) and I guess they were marking on the floors where I didn't go. The smell was the biggest indicator for us that they had peed in the house and they probably had days before I even noticed.
I pulled out my steam cleaner and ran it through the room till the dirty water was clear. I still smelled the urine. I tried the vinegar/water solution after the carpet had dried. That didn't work. So, I went and bought "Get Serious" at Petsmart and guess what, it worked. I just sprayed it in, in a zig zag motion and then ran my steam cleaner over the wet spots after I had let the solution sit on the carpet for a few minutes. I was surprised that the dirty water was yellow/gray. Nobody had been in that room since, so there was no reason for it to have been dirty that fast. I think it was the solution that loosened up the pee in the pad. Now the room smells clean and fresh. No more urine odor. Hope this helps someone. (05/17/2008)
If you want the odor to be gone and gone for good to never return go to scoe10x.com and buy their starter kit. I promise it will work unlike anything you have ever tried or heard of trying. Many on the market claim to get rid of the odor and most will for awhile, but they all return. SCOE10X gets rid of the odor and it will not return ever.
Don't believe me, get it, and try it. It is by far the best odor removal solution in the world nothing else compares and nothing else can beat its results. (06/05/2008)
Try vinegar and baking soda mixed with water. Use it a couple of times. Let it sit for 30 minutes; scrub in with a brush. It should work great. (10/06/2008)
I found a site that has great products for animal care.
I tried the Whiffwacker in my garage after two cats spent the winter in it. The stuff worked great. It was worth every cent I paid for it and it is all natural. I am sensitive to chemicals. The site is:
You would never know I had any animals in my house now. Not only did it take care of the lingering urine odor in our spare bedroom (female Dalmatian), but it also works on bathroom odors.
