Puddy is going to be 2 years old in October and he is still having accidents in the house. Sometimes he'll go for weeks without a problem then he'll have 2 accidents in one week. Should it take this long to fully get them trained? Of course I never catch him in the act, I just find the spot later. My carpets are smelling but I don't want to get them professionally cleaned until I break him of this habit! Please, please help!!
I know you don't want to clean the carpet but the smell is what might be makeing him go there again. The nature miricle is really good for getting rid of the smell for spot cleaning
Good Idea lexi's mom... i forgot about that . We also have a carpet cleaner. it was like 200.00 canadian, but very convient and worth the money. We also lend it out to others.
My parent's dog is getting old and has been having accidents inside more often (once/twice a month) and has throws up every so often. It is great to be able to pull out the carpet cleaner when it happens.
I think they have a hoover, it must be almost 10 years old now. It is just starting to show signs of wear and tear. My dang younger brother lets his friends use it to clean there car interiors and they somehow put some small tears in the hose. We were able to cover them with duck tape, but we might have to get a new carpet cleaner in another year or two (or at least replace the hose).
If anyone gets one look for ones that have individual spinning brushes. You don't want one solid spinning brush (like a vacuum cleaner). The individual ones do a lot better job.
