Now matter how well behaved your dog is, at some point he’ll have an accident in the middle of your living room rug. The key to removing both the stain and the odor is to choose the right urine odor remover for dogs. If you choose one that is not as effective, not only will the stain still be with you, your dog is more likely to return and repeat the performance.
When you need to get rid of dog urine smell, you need to choose a cleaning product that is intended for use specifically on pet urine. The product should state this right on the label. These products do not just disinfect, but they remove the odor completely to keep your dog from coming back and remarking the same spot. Always read the label carefully. Avoid any urine remover products that contain ammonia, since this is one of the main chemicals found in urine. An ingredient that you do want to find on the label is enzymes, since these break down the chemical components of the urine and help to remove it completely from fabric.
