I have a small dog who has a habit of peeing and pooping in the house in between goign outside. My house now smells like dog urine and I noticed your post on peroxide but can't find the "recipe" for the mixture. Would like to try it anyway.

Kate is right. If you want the odor to be completely removed you need an enzymatic cleaner. Make sure you follow the directions exactly. Let it sit on the stain for the required period of time and don't allow the dog back into the area until the solution has completly dried. If the area is still wet and the dog comes back into the room, it might still be able to smell the odor and think that is where it should be going.

I've never used peroxide to remove stains from carpet...
but I have had great luck with vinegar. After the biobother has been removed, stick your finger in the open neck of the vinegar bottle and "sprinkle" some on the stain. Blot this up with a cloth diaper...and then tomorrow when it is VERY dry sprinkle a little baking soda on it. Baking soda on wet carpet turns into concrete.
If the entire room needs to be treated...I would put a cup of vinegar in the rinse water of your shampooer.

My mother's house was RUINED by cat pee. It was beyond the carpet..the stains had made their way into the wood flooring. We had to replace the wood floors underneath the carpet to completely remove the odor.

Your best bet is to go to a pet supply store and get something called Nature's Miracle or another enzymatic cleaner. Using anything but an enzymatic cleaner can leave the pheromones behind causing a urine smell and encouraging the dog to return to the same spot again.

Also, crate your dog when you're not home or can't watch him to let him outside.

Wait, you OWN the company and your employee won't do the job you've told him to do?

...WHY haven't you reprimanded him or fired him? I understand he's your son, but at this point it's about a job he's supposed to be doing.
