Default QUESTION 1 - Use of Dettol

While at my mates tonight her sister was there and we got onto talking dogs, I mentioned I used Dettol to clean up Red's mishaps and she told me that she was advised not to use Dettol.

The reasoning being that dogs actually like the smell and it encourages them to mess in the area.

That would explain loads why red started pooing behind the sofa suddenly as I have often washed with Dettol there when teh pen used to be there and could be why he poo's in the pen now even so the conservatory door is open.

My question now is... does anyone have any tips on what I can use to clean up that deters dogs.

I can't use "Keep Off" as the smell is disgusting and it sets off my breathing problems


Cheers

Deme x

You just need to use cleaning product with no ammonia. Ammonia occurs natually in dogs pee so when you clean with it, that spot then smells like a toilet to them.


Hope this helps!

We just use Resolve, but I cant say for certain that its any kind of deterrent. I know what you mean about the Keep Off, that stuff is toxic!

I admit I dont know if it'd work for the dogs, but we've JUST managed to stop the kittens using the corner of the room as a litter tray by scrubbing the carpet there with lemon fairy liquid mixed with water - They hate the scent.

Acutally, Maisies avoided that corner too since we did that.... so it might be something to try!

That may be worth a try, I have heard cats don't like the smell of lemon so hopefully that goes for dogs as well.

I will try anything as long as it don't give off a strong scent otherwise I'll be back in hospital

Has dettol got ammonia in it??? Ammonia is like urine so I could understand him weeing not pooing :/

I hate all that urine off stuff coz I have laminate and if it strips urine it must dodamage to my floors anyway I use floor cleaner then an anti bacterial wipe and then vanilla essence I read somewhere it works and I've not had problem. Lavendar oil also works apparently
