Dogs are truly wonderful, but they can be tough on carpets. When they have an accident, the natural dye in urine can be difficult to remove even with professional chemicals. And the urine often travels to the carpet backing, pad and even the subfloor. This makes odor removal difficult,  too.

Why not install a doggy door? Then poochie can go out when they need to. You can get one at Home Depot or Lowe’s that will fit in your sliding door track. Or you can go through a wall. They come in various sizes. And you can lock them shut as needed, too.

I installed one many years ago. No more accidents. No more having to constantly let my poochie in and out. And my carpets still look great!
