Removing Dog Urine Odor from Bedroom

My dog is now 8 or 9 months old and is a good dog. He goes potty outside, but he will go inside too and usually in the kid's room. What can I do to get rid of his scent that he smells in there, so he won't go in there anymore?

Most pet stores have "deterrent" type sprays that you can spray on problem areas, but the bottle says it only lasts 12 hours at a time. You can use store-bought pet stain remover to get the urine smell out, you just have to spray it generously and let it soak into the carpetpadding for 5+minutes. If that still doesn't work, a solution of water and baking soda may get remaining smell out. Hope this helps!

You need an enzyme cleaner that breaks down the urine, one I have used is called U R In Control. If the rug and pad are pretty old you might get rid of them, treat the sub-floor and then replace them. But if you don't want to spend the money, get an enzyme treatment, Petsmart carries them and many hardware stores. Don't use ammonia because it smells like pee. I keep the bedroom doors closed, as I have a 6 month old puppy and she is good now, but no use giving her the opportunity. Keep praising him and giving him treats every time he goes outside, too.

Vinegar! Plain old white vinegar, undiluted! Pour some in a spray bottle and spray the legs of any furniture, let it run off into the floor.Soak the favorite spots, let it stand awhile,then blot it all up,and go over the whole floor with vinegar and a mop.The vinegar is mildly acidic, (5%,you could drink it if you wanted to), but won't harm him, your kids, the coloring of the upholstery,or the padding under the carpet, if there is any. The odor will disappear as it dries, and you can wash whatever may need washing with vinegar in the machine. I buy it in the gallon size for about a dollar and a quarter.

I have found that Peroxide works very well for pet stains.If area is still wet, blot it up with paper towels, using a cloth, wipe with peroxide, blot it up with more paper towels. Repeat until stain is gone. The smell disappears so you will not have any repeat animal accidents in same area. Peroxide generally does not take color out of carpet or fabrics and isn't harmful to your pets

Using vinegar on some flooring will void the manufactures warranty.

Test first as peroxide will leave bleach spots on some carpeting.
