Is there anything more exciting than welcoming a new puppy in your home? As a dog owner, nothing is like holding your new puppy on the way home and seeing the excitement as they smell everything in your home for the first time. When Ivi first came in our home, she was amazed at all the new things, and especially all the fun dog toys owned by her big sister (to her dismay). As that adorable puppy looked up at me, it was easy to forget the long campaign ahead – one faced by all dog owners – potty training and the battle against puppy accidents.

While I may be joking some, battling puppy accidents is a major issue for pet owners, and many new pet parents get overwhelmed. One of the worst things is when your adorable puppy pees on your brand new rug or has diarrhea from an upset tummy all over your carpet. It isn’t the puppies fault that they are learning how to hold their bladder or bowels, or in Ivi’s case that turkey just doesn’t agree with her, but it can be quite frustrating to pet owners. Even as someone who has had a dog most of her life, I can tell you there are times I just wanted to cry, especially when it seemed like I was never going to get all the pee out of the carpet.

As a seasoned dog owner, I have my arsenal against puppy accidents, which includes a lot of towels, water, and of course, a variety of cleaners. When it comes to the nastiness of stains on our carpet though, there is only one cleaner I now trust in our household – Spot Shot® Pet. While other cleaners on the market work with a bit of scrubbing or hard elbow grease, Spot Shot Pet Instant Carpet Stain & Odor Eliminator  really does work nearly instantly. Just gently pat down or remove what caused the stain, spray Spot Shot Pet on the stain, and watch it dissolve right before your eyes!

Everyone Cherishes Small Potty Victories!

Not only does it permanently get rid of the sights of puppy accidents, it gets rid of the smell too. It even works on older stains, meaning you can clean up accidents that perhaps didn’t come up previously with other cleaners. Spot shot even works on:

  • Urine
  • Feces
  • Vomit
  • Tracked-in Mud, Dirt, and Oil

Ready to make battling puppy accidents a fight of the past? You can buy Spot Shot Pet in a 14 oz Aerosol can or 22 oz Pet Trigger. Both of these products have the Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute and are SCS certified biodegradable, making them the perfect option for pet friendly households. Best of all, you can find it at your local Wal-Mart store, allowing you to make puppy accidents a thing of the past!

    I have never tried this brand before! Although my dog is past the days of accidents it would be nice to keep around just in case!

    I always wish o have a pet but unfortunately all the people in our house are too busy 🙁 so no one would take care of the dog if we went out.

    We have used Spot Shot in the past & found it to be very effective. Should we enter into the realm of puppydom once again, we will have to make sure we have some on hand!

    Ugh, it can be such a bad habit! We actually invested in a carpet cleaner to have in the house with ours!! It just made sense and we knew the carpet got cleaned all the way down!!

    Spot Shot is great, I didn’t know they had a pet stain version! Great to know! I’ve got 3 cats!

    Definitely have to take a look at this brand. It’s very hard to get certain stains and smells out, always looking for something good to help out x

    I don’t think we have this product in Ireland but I tend to shy away from chemicals anyway. Good old bicarb of soda with some lemon juice works wonders!

    I haven’t heard of this product until now, this definitely sounds worth trying. Thanks for posting!

    I have used their stain removal on clothes and found it very helpful but have not tried the carpet product. Looks very handy.

    Thanks for the heads up.This sounds like a fabulous product to try.I hope it works for the cat accidents too!

    We used to use this product regularly for kid accidents and the occasional one our rabbits would have too, but now that we have a dog I might need to start buying it again!

    As a dachshund mommy I’ve had my fair share of messes to clean up over the years. You name it he’s done it and then some. He’s my boy but if it wasn’t for products like this my house would be a wreck.
