My house smells like dog pee? [closed]

asked 2015-07-17 21:23:05 -0500

I've recently had one of my regulars stay and he never had a problem with peeing & pooping in the house, but I've had more dogs here recently so I assume he could smell them. He peed somewhere in our house and I can't figure out where exactly the smell is coming from. I've washed a spot I think it's originating from, and used " Nature's Miracle Stain and Odor " removal spray from Petco, but to not avail it still smells in our house. Any tips for finding, removing and preventing?

I highly recommend you buy a black light. You can find it on Amazon. This tool is a must have for all pet sitters. Make sure your room is dark and shine the light everywhere. You'll be surprised how much stuff you will find. Shine it on the walls as well, for all those male dogs you take care of that lifts their legs. Trust me, you will find where the urine is located and can clean it more effectively.

That's great advice and coincidentally, I actually just went no Amazon yesterday and bought myself one for this purpose! I figured if my nose can't find it, the light probably could :)

Sorry to say but only cat urine will light up with a dark light as it contains ammonia. Dog urine does not. There's no easy way to locate 'the' spot unfortunately, until your uproot the underlying layers.

NONE of the above answers the lady's question - where is it? Your advice is awesome ONCE the spots are known.
