Locating smelly but hard to find carpet spots

A trick for finding urine spots in your carpet that aren't visible but still smell bad is to use a black light. The urine spots will show up nice and clearly for cleaning.

One of the hardest things to get rid of is the smell if it's gone through the carpet pad. If the spot is near an edge or corner, sometimes it's best to pull back the carpet and replace the piece of padding.

Products to use on your carpet (recommended by Vizsla owners): SPOT SHOT and FOLEX. Even water and white vinegar works great for getting rid of odors. Do not use cleaners with ammonia for they smell more like urine and wind up encouraging the dogs to urinate in the same spot.
