Help ladies. My dogs are terribly behaved and every few months they go through a stage where they start weeing/pooping in the second bedroom. They never, ever try to tell me that they need to go out. I try to remember to let them out a lot, but its still happening. And I guess once the room has the scent they keep going back.

Anyway, every few months I rent a steam cleaner and clean the carpet (gave up on professionals as they were expensive and weren't doing any better). But now even a good cleaning doesn't seem to be completely ridding the room of the smell. I know at this stage its into the carpet, padding, etc. This is the room where Jamie naps and it will be his bedroom some day unless I decide to move (I currently rent). Do you think that its dangerous for him to nap in there??? Does anyone know anything else I can do about the smell? Because I'm only renting I can't have the carpet replaced - and it would mean replacing all the downstairs carpeting because its one big connected carpet, not separate in each room. I've tried some air fresheners but of course that has limited/temporary effect.

I know that at some pet supply stores they have products out there to remove the smells like that. I don't know how well they work because I have never tried them. I hope some of the other ladies have some ideas. Good luck!!

Tried all the stuff at the pet store when they were puppies. Unfortunately none of them are great, regardless of their promises :-(

Hmm, I'd probably cave and buy a steam cleaner. We have one that cleans really well and was less than $200, but I know there are even less expensive models. Then, clean the carpet after every mess. As for the smell...could you air the room out for a few days?

I don't think the smell is harmful, but I would worry about the padding trapping moisture in the carpet and the possibility of mold growing under there.

After years of having dogs I've decided there isn't much you can do when carpet is involved. The urine soaks down into the carpet pad and you have to replace it. You can just replace the one room though, the carpet people just create a seam where that room ends. The house we are renting had to have most of the carpets replaced after we moved in because the previous owners had dogs and the stains could not be removed by professional cleaning.
