When it comes to cleaning up dog pee, the best product to use is one that is specifically for cleaning up pet accidents. These products are designed for destroying mess caused by dogs and they are generally safe to use on carpets, furniture, and other surfaces.

Most pet accident cleaners remove all traces of urine, including the smell.

Here's the best way to clean up if your dog makes a mess in the house:

  1. Blot the urine with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much of it as possible.

  2. Pour an appropriate amount of pet accident cleaner, like this one available at Ralph Woofington, onto the soiled area.

  3. Gently agitate the area with a brush or sponge.

  4. Allow the cleaner to sit on the stain for several minutes.

  5. Rinse the area with clean, warm water.

  6. Repeat steps two through six if necessary.

  7. Once the area is clean, it's important to dry it thoroughly. Use a clean towel or a wet/dry vacuum to remove all traces of moisture from the area.
