I have a male dachshund who will not stop peeing on my carpet, which stresses me out. I have beautiful handmade carpets rolled up and stored under my bed. If I had tile or hardwood under my wall-to-wall carpet, I’d have pulled my carpet up by now.
Getting my doxie to stop peeing on my carpet seems to be out of the question, though I can minimize it with a little maintenance spraying. I also have my day-to-day strategies for dealing with the “accidents”. It’s a heck of a thing to be a semi-expert at.
