Potty Training a Puppy

By far the most common question that we receive around here is about potty training puppies. Many times the puppy or dog is mostly potty trained but they still have the occasional “accident” in the house.

What to do?

Well, so long as your puppy can still smell the “spot” he may continue to use it when under stress or even for other reasons.

Therefore the most important thing is the thoroughly clean and deodorize the area. You will need to eradicate the odor as much as possible. Keep in mind that your dog can still smell it even when you can’t so make a good effort to get rid of the odor so that your dog can no longer smell it.

The best way to get rid of these smells is to do it organically. You want your home safe for your pet and for your family. Bioenzymatic pet odor neutralizers work well by using natural enzymes that actually digest and eliminate animal based stains and odors. Enzyme based pet odor eliminators are available at pet stores as well as do-it-yourself building centers.

Chemically based “odor neutralizers” do nothing to actually break down the odor molecules but tend to just mask the problem. Add to that the danger of unknown chemicals in your house and you would do best to just avoid them altogether.

Some other ‘natural’ things that you can do that may be worth trying would be to dampen the spot with water and then sprinkle borax over the top. Let it dry then vacuum up the dried borax. Or you can dampen the spot with vinegar and water, pour baking soda over that, wait for it to dry then vacuum it up.

Continue with your other training methods to actually get your puppy completely trained but eradicating the odor in your house where your dog has soiled will help a lot in keeping him from doing it again.

Good Luck!
