The Right Flooring Makes A Difference
Damage Already Done
It is important to reinforce the good behavior in your pet. Unless you catch them in the act, they will not be able to connect a punishment with the puddle. Give them a treat when they pee outside or on a pee pad.
Tools Of The Trade
Pee pads are relatively new in the world of potty training, but can be an effective tool if you are unable to take your pet outside. It also gives them a designated spot to go when they are still learning when to use the bathroom.
Pet dander, fur and spilled food can cause your carpets to become smelly and dirty. Invest in a quality vacuum for your carpeted areas. For wet messes in carpet, a carpet shampooer is advised. Buying one is a big investment, but renting one for occasional messes can prevent permanent odors.
Pet grooming can also help prevent damage. Pet nail clippers can help reduce the chances of nicks and scratches in your hardwood flooring, and grooming brushes designed to trap fur can help to reduce the amount of fur transferred to your carpet.
