Dog Training To Help Protect Your Carpet 

When it comes to pet stains and odors, prevention is key. Dogs have the tendency to relieve themselves repeatedly in the same spot, so it’s important to remove any traces of the stain with pet urine removal in Santa Clarita.

Here are some other methods to try:

Kennel training. Get a crate or kennel that’s large enough for your dog to stand up and move around in, but small enough that it isn’t easy for them to relieve themselves inside. Make the kennel a cozy spot with pillows, treats, and toys. Use a phrase or cue like “inside” or “let’s go” and rewards or treats to help them learn to go in and out of the kennel.

It’s helpful to establish a set time each day for your dog to spend time in the kennel, and not to leave them there for too long. Dogs typically don’t relieve themselves in the same place where they sleep, so this can help them learn to hold it in while they’re in the kennel followed by a bathroom break afterwards. Reward your dog with a treat or toy each time he relieves himself outside.

Schedule training. Determine how often your dog should need to relieve himself. Puppies will need to go more frequently. Establish times too—most common are in the morning, after meals, before bed, and after kennel time.

Avoid negative reinforcement like punishing your dog after accidents. Instead, move your dog outdoors during the accident if possible. It can be helpful to take your dog outside about 5 minutes before their usual time. Again, reward with treats, toys, and verbal praise. Also be ready to make adjustments to this schedule as your dog grows and matures.

Puppy pad training. Purchase pee pads that are the right size for your dog and place them in an accessible spot—preferably on hard flooring, not carpet. Take your dog to the pad just before the time you anticipate him needing to relieve himself.

Praise your dog each time he uses the puppy pad, then clean the area and replace the pad. Gradually move the pad closer to the door until it transitions outside.
