What's the best solution to getting rid of Dog Pee on my carpets (and cloth furniture, and clothes, and other porous items)? What's your favourite brand of cleaner?
My dog is a pomeranian. (Aren't they supposed to be kind of stupid when it comes to washroom etiquette) And i think he's sort of incontinent, or just REALLY EASILY excitable, and then he drips if he's too excited. We got him from an owner who kept him in a cage. (so we think he might be neurotic).
Sometimes he stares at us, and then we're smart enough to figure out that he wants to go outside. Sometimes he just doesn't make any indication and just goes somewhere, even in front of us!
Today he just lifted his leg in front of me and peed by the door, then ran under the bed.
I've tried FEBREZE, which only gets rid of some of the smell.
I'm almost finished with the 'SHOUT CARPET' which i don't think it even does anything. Still got yellow stains and bad smell.
I've tried something called 'ODOR DISPOSERS-HOUSEBREAKING AID' which u spray somewhere and the dog is supposed to want to pee there. And this product seems to have absolutely NO effect whatsoever.
ARRRRRR I'm dying in a pit of DOG PEE SMELL!!!!!

I use Nature's Miracle. There are supposedly enzymes that should help neutralize the smell of the urine. It seems to work really well. You can get it at Petsmart or Petco (and other pet shops, I'm sure).

I like a product called "Simple Solution" or another called "Natures Miracle". Both have an enzyme that basically make the pee into something else. It might take several applications to fully get rid of deep dried urine stain - but if you douse the stain in the stuff, put a folded towel on it with some large books to weight it down overnight, it usually comes up with one application. The smell will go away.

SHOWENDS like your dog is anxiHOWES. HOWEver, urinating in front of you is often a sign he's got a urinary tract infection, although the "dribbling" sHOWENDS like submissive urination.
Study your FREE copy of The Puppy Wizard's FREE WWW Wits' End Dog Training Method Manual and do ALL the exercises as instructed and you'll CURE these problems in WON or two days. FAILING THAT, you'd be WIZE to have his urine checked. But do the training first, cause that's PROBABLY his ONLY problem.

You helped me with my pal Dundee about a year ago regarding submissive peeing. Just wanted to let you know he's doing great- he was "cured" in about 2 days using your techniques!
He has since become the "smartest dog in the world"! Once I stopped thinking like a human and got inside his head, I can teach him ANYTHING, usually in a matter of minutes. Makes me look like an expert dog-trainer.
I rescued two strays last week, cleaned 'em up, wormed 'em, and am getting them their shots. Time to get inside their heads and teach them to teach themselves how to be good dogs!
Instead of feeling like "training" is a chore, I look forward to working with these guys a couple times a day...
Although I don't follow your instructions "to a T", I learned from you to "think like a dog" and stimulate their brain rather than beating ass or pinching, or any of that nonsense.
I know damn well I would NOT be loyal to someone who beat MY ass lol!
Well, just wanted to thank you for rattling the bushes out there and teaching folks the RIGHT way to "train" dogs.
A horseman friend of mine uses very similar techniques in training his horses- he calls it "natural horsemanship". He is hated by nearly all the local "trainers" yet somehow he repeatedly wins at every show he attends. He rarely shows any more, but goes now and then to rub their noses in it (pun intended)... Too cool....
Have a great holiday season and keep up the good work!

Hi. Please understand that I do not know Jerry and have spoken with him briefly once by email.
I have no stake or interest in the success of his business. I simply want to thank him publicly for one of his tips, with regards to separation anxiety.
I thought it seemed far fetched to praise a stuffed animal and then say good bye to my own dog, but I am usually a very open minded person, so I tried it.
Well, lo and behold- the damn trick worked!
I think Jerry has some intriguing techniques, and personally I think everyone who constantly criticizes him is not understanding his logic. Thank you Jerry!

I see nothings changed on the NG. Still the same old crappy advice and misunderstanding of the only advice worth reading.
The problem with your method J is that I can't answer the questions on the NG no more, people are after a quick fix, they don't want to understand that dog training requires a disiplined method, I'm now really understanding that they are all result orientated, they want the dog to sit, to down, to stay, to come, to stop it's "bad" behaviours, they want to stamp out each anxiety one at a time not realising they create a new one as they deal with the last.
I feel sorry for them, they don't understand, they don't even realise the errors of thier ways and they arn't self thinkers, they follow the majority, after all if everyone says thats the way then it must be. I've finally realised people don't want to learn to train dogs they want a trained dog, they want a little puppet that sits and stays and downs and does all the nice doggy stuff or so they think, then when the dog acts like a dog they come squealing to the NG asking how to stop the dog being a dog.
I have a nice little visulisation of a dogs mind that I think demonstrates the way we approach dog training. Imagine lots of little circles all in a cluster, each one representing a dog anxiety or behaviour ( desied or not), each circle represents something about the dog, all of them create what a dog is.
The traditional way to train a dog is to stamp out the "bad" circles, try to eliminate as many as you can, problem is each one you stamp out another takes it's place (anxiety circles can't be destroyed they just change), obviously it's a futile exercise, but thats the traditional way.
Now imagine a big circle that completely surrounds all the small circles, this big circle is the whole dog, that's what we get hold of with all the little circles inside, we don't see the little circles we see the BIG circle the macro as you put it and use that to train.
I laugh now when I see posts critisising you, they are critising something they don't even understand or even have the capacity to understand.

It's moore than a chapter, it's a comprehensive, total, complete, gestalt method to train all animals to any level you desire.

My methods work faster than any others, anywhere at any price, including the thirty five levels of medical grade static like stimulation devices and pronged spiked pinch choke collars our "experts" here love so much.

Good. Crates aren't inherently bad, only the way they're misused.

Good. I've got a lot in common with folks who are gentle and treat animals kindly.
> We'd never heard of the noise emphasis,
You mean the sound distraction and praise techniques.
> but the overall plan makes great sense.
Yes, one of my students Paul B wrote an excellent post recently I'll include it at the bottom. It'll explain HOWE the distraction and praise process works from his POV as an experience handler using my methods.
> I did have a question. The hardest part for us to > implement is the verbal praise only.
Why? That should be spontaneous and in association with every glance towards you and every thought.
> It's so hard not to pet and stroke the dog (especially > our seven month old).
Oh. Patting is O.K., only not in conjunction with a thought or command, as it will interrupt the thought process and may lock the dog's thoughts on an inappropriate idea.
> Can you give me the rationale behind that?
It's called positive thigmotaxis, the opposition reflex. Like if we're walking our dog and want to prevent him from interacting with another dog, and we pull back on the collar, that often triggers the dog to go out of control.
As long as there's contact on the collar, the dog will continue his original thoughts about interacting with the passerby. Then because the dog is out of control, the handler needs to further force restraint, making communication with the dog's MIND, impossible.
> It will help me modify my own behavior.
Any time your dog is close enough to be patted is fine to pat him, as long as we're not working with a command or thought we want him to process.
> Anyway, your approach is amazing.
Yes, it's caused quite a stir here. If my methods are as effective and fast and safe as I claim and my students confirm, that pretty much means that all of my critics are DEAD WRONG, and all's that's left for me to do is shovel some dirt over them over and let 'em push up daisies.
Try Jerry Howe's training manual and check out his Doggy Do Right (And Kitty Will And A Rooster Did And A Cockatoo Or Two Did Too) machine....it is for this.
Please do not listen to the others in here that don't like him or his methods, they have never tried them....I have and it works!!!!
I broke my dog from nipping almost 100% in 1 day and she usually does this SEVERAL times a day and actually makes my kids bleed!
Try it or contact him! The manual is at the above website also, and it is free!

I hope you'll be able to post this message so more people who are at their wit's end will be able to help their dogs.
Our puppy was uncomfortable during thunder storms. At the beginning of the problem, she paced restlessly from room to room. She couldn't settle and sleep.
>From there the problem grew. She would run to the far southeast corner of the house (which makes sense because most storms here come from the northwest) and she'd cower in the corner of the couch and shake.
!st attempt to help her:
I'd pick her up, brush and massage her (call me a nut - I've sung to her when I've done her daily brushing since she was tiny so of course I sang too) and when she relaxed, I'd put her in her crate. She then slept and I thought the problem was solved.
We were out in the park playing with one of her doggy friends when it began to rain. On the way home, there was the loudest, longest, thunder clap I've ever heard.
>From that day on, the problem got worse and worse. I couldn't calm her with singing and massage. The fear spread. She wouldn't go out if it was raining. No thunder, just gently summer rain, and she wouldn't go out.
I surfed the net and came across a free manual Wit's End Dog Training Method and a product called Doggy Do Right that seemed better than anything else I came across.
A phone call to Jerry Howe, author of the manual and Director of Research, Biosound Scientific, convince me to try both the manual and the product.
I followed Jerry's suggestions (more phone calls - he is most generous with his time and advice). The first two thunder storms my puppy was restless but not running around in a blind panic.
The third storm, she barked her deep, stranger danger bark after each clap of thunder. The fourth storm, she seemed uneasy at first. Soon she was asleep at my feet and she napped through the rest of the storm.
A miracle. I am endlessly grateful to Jerry for his manual and his machine.
A word about Doggy Do Right. It is odd to buy a machine that emits a sound I cannot hear. I took the chance because Jerry offered a full refund including shipping.
Though I heard nothing, my puppy clearly did. When I first turned on the machine, she got the cutest, most quizzical look on her face. She looked at me as if to say: "What's that? I never heard that before."
She looks at the machine when it is on. She rests on the floor beneath it. It is obvious from her behavior that she is aware of its cycles.
Thank you Jerry.

I'm the one who ignored your advice. I did it because of how you write/wrote. I was unwilling to accept the idea that my using a shock collar could have any bearing on Peach not wanting to stay home. Up until I started using it my main concern had been keeping my dogs in their own yard.
Once I started using the e-fence... well, then my concern became how to keep them from running off for days on end.
I lost valuable training time becoming embroiled in the anti- shock debate and the "Jerry sux" tirades.

I have a dog that barks at the fence only when some ones there.
I have a dog that would not care less if there is another dog in the park <only wants to be with and please me though a lot of this is due to me training the dog spending the time with the dog.
jerry's book showed me not to punish the dog. but just to work with the dog. which I liked the idea of hence why I tried it. it is easy to become frustrated with a dog when you are trying to train them.
I look forward to my next puppy <ban dog> so I can use the information from jerry's book and see just how good a dog can get.
the dog I have now was when I picked her up from the RSPCA. she could not walk on a lead <no idea. cowered from every noise <and wet her self, messed in the house at every turn. acted like I was killing her when I dragged her over to the mess.
this was A 6 month old pup that had been beaten <2.5 feet to the shoulder. I could of taken her back however I knew I could bring her back to being to be a dog.
the dog I have now at 1.5 years <same dog is a dog to be proud to walk down the street with <3 feet to the shoulder and still growing.
so well behaved even when people walk passed with a out of control dog. gentle with my child and trustworthy < I never have to worry that my dog will bite her, only have to worry if a stranger comes over to my child. still that is not a worry, she places herself between my child and the stranger.
I may be plugging jerry's book, however with the crap out there it is good to see that someone has moved forward. looked at a different way to train dogs. yes he gets into people, and in their face you should back off a little jerry however he is sick of the bashing, choking, shocking, shaking and everything else. so jerry save this lad from ruining his dog. later, Joe

I read up on rotties, pitbulls, etc., and quite a bit of the literature suggested I needed to assert my dominance and "make the dog earn everything it gets."
I tried this once or twice, just by taking a stern tone of voice, and the results were terrible. The pup got scared and just wanted to stay away from me.
That's why I support Jerry Howe and his FREE Wits' End Dog Training manual -- that and the fact that Jerry is an all-around great guy.
The core takeaway I got from Jerry's manual is this: make yourself the center of your puppy's world - - his personal Lord Jesus. Never give him a reason to fear you or think you're angry. Love the heck out of him, and you'll end up with a great dog.
This has truly worked with my puppy. She'll do anything I want her to, if she understands, because she trusts me 100 percent, and nothing is more important in her world than her relationship with me. http://www.geocities.com/viscouspuppy Charlie

To my mind, "naive" is believing you can terrorize a dog into good behavior. Naive is believing that people that hide behind fake names are more honest than people that use their real names. Naive is thinking that dilettante dog breeders and amateur "trainers" like Joey (lyingdogDUMMY, j.h.) are the equal or better than those that have studied and lived by their craft for decades.
"Stupid" is believing that people do not see kindergarten level insults for what they are. Really stupid is believing that people like Jerry Howe and Marylin Rammell are going to just go away because you people act like fools. Why do you act like fools? I really have no idea, and I don't really care.

I think I'm going to get one myself for Father's day and take it down to the Animal Shelter for their use and testing. You would never believe the results, so you'll never know.

I don't see a "scam man", so I guess I and Longsuffering Wife and Rollei will just have to get what we deserve, eh? As Joey (Dogman) says, "poor Rollei.".......right.
Yes it was, and that is sad.

Robert Crim was a former Gang Of Thugs Member, and hated me a much as the rest of our Thugs do. Robert was a long time friend and prominent contributor to rpdb, till Jerry came along and smartened him up. He learned the hard way, and no longer posts to his former pals, because it is just too painful knowing his pals would rather HURT and KILL their dogs than to admit that JERRY is RIGHT.
"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." -Leo Tolstoy-
Is it any wonder that the following sig file has generated more complaints to my personal email than any other controversial post I have made to date, bar none?:
CAVEAT If you have to do things to your dog to train him that you would rather not have to do, then you shouldn't be doing them. If you have a dog trainer who tells you to jerk your dog around, choke him, pinch his ears, or twist his toes, shock, shake, slap, scold, hit, chin cuff, scruff shake or punish your dog in any manner, that corrections are appropriate, that the dog won't think of you as the punisher, or that corrections are not harmful, or if they can't train your dog to do what you want, look for a trainer that knows HOWE.

We use Nature's Miracle, available on-line or at pet stores. It contains enzymes that break down the urine and smell. Follow the directions on the bottle.
You might need an ultraviolet light to detect all of the urine spots. Dried urine fluoresces in the presence of UV light. Also check pet stores for this.
If your dog has peed all over the place, you might consider having a professional carpet cleaning done, using urine-removing enzymes. Home carpet steam-cleaners didn't do a complete job at my in-laws house, but the odor seemed to disappear after the professional cleaning.
Your next step will be to start housebreaking training from ground zero. IMO, the most important things here are prevention - don't give your dog the opportunity to pee inside - and reward - praise him lavishly when he pees outside. Don't yell at him or punish him for peeing inside. If you catch him in the act, pick him up and carry him outside immediately. If you don't catch him, don't rub his nose in it. Take him out first thing in the morning, a few minutes after eating, and every couple of hours in between. Don't let him run freely in the house without supervision, so that you'll be more likely to notice a signal or catch him in the act. If you can't watch him every minute, you can leash him to your belt if you're moving around, or put him in his crate (which must be completely deodorized if he's peed in there). When he pees outside, praise him, but don't rush him back into the house (if he likes to sniff or putz or play outside, rushing him back in will effectively punish peeing). If he gives you a signal that he wants to go out, praise that, too.
And remember, patience. He's already established the habit of peeing in the house. It will take a while to extinguish this behavior and replace it with peeing outside.
Oh, you don't give his age. Is he less than a year old? If he's still a puppy, his tiny bladder may need emptying more often than you'd suspect.

One more thing - have you had him checked by a vet? Sometimes incontinence is caused by a urinary tract infection.

With our dogs, when we trained them we also praised highly when they peed outside. We immediately gave them a treat too (we use pieces of carrot). We slowly started giving them the treat as we got closer to the back door until the treat became an indoor thing after peeing outside. Now they do their business and make a happy beeline for the back door so they can get their carrot.

I like that idea!
