Indoor puppy plumbing is an awesome convenience. Our pup goes potty when they need to, and we don’t have to worry about accidents in the house anymore. But, this comes with a small cost- that pungent smell of urine that can accumulate as your dog fills up their potty. Things can get a little stinky, so it’s important that you take precautions.

Keep it clean

The first step in preventing the stinky smell of urine is to keep your pup’s potty clean. Though, proper cleaning is a must. If you use harsh cleaners such as bleach, it’ll definitely get rid of the smell, but you may find your pup choosing a new place to do their business. Enzyme based cleaners are best, and will attack potty odors at the source rather than just cover them up.

Fresh air

Aside from cleaning, there is still the potential for the smell to build back up over time. The best thing you can do is find some plug-in air fresheners for rooms. Avoid using sockets that your pup can get to, so they won’t get any chewing ideas. Candles can definitely help, but remember that dogs are a curious animal, and may get a little too close to a flame or knock it over. Keep them up high and out of reach. There are always the air fresheners, such as Febreze, which can help freshen the room. Just be careful that you don’t spray it on materials that your pup might want to get a taste of (furniture and pillows). While it will take out the smell, it can leave your pup with an upset tummy (that’ll likely lead to having to use the potty more often).

On occasion, it isn’t a bad idea to open up the windows to get some fresh air in the room. Urine scent can soak into carpet, furniture, and other materials, so it’s a good idea to keep the air in the house fresh.

The stinky scent of urine can be difficult to get rid of once it’s built up, so do your best to prevent it from making a home in your home. Keep your pup’s potty fresh, keep your house fresh, and let it breathe every now and then so that both you and your dog can breathe easy in your home.
