    At least you hadn't made anything out of the fabric. My Jack peed on a queen size top that I had laying out on the floor ready to be pin basted. I had the backing down, the batting down and the top on top. I was trying to get supper started and he let me know he wanted to go out, but I had to do something else. In the meantime, he decided to go on the quilt. I was able to just spray the bottom two layers, but had to launder the top before I could pin baste it and quilt it. I never told my sister-in-law to be (that's who the quilt was made for) what had happened. I was hoarse for 2 days from yelling at him. I was so mad that I know I couldn't touch him, so I just yelled.

    Good luck getting it out.

    Look at those eyes how can you get mad at him.
    I couldn't.
    I have a doxie and he doesn't do that I'm so thankful too.
    I have had three other ones and no problems there either but they are in doggie heaven now.

    Ditto the vinegar. It worked with diapers.

    I feel the same way...the odors are not removeable...smell is terrible

    Three tips.

    One, if a dog has housetraining problems, don't leave them loose in the house! Put them on a leash, tie the leash around your waist or to a belt loop and have the dog follow you around as you go about your life. Go outside *with* the dog at regular intervals, praise quietly while they eliminate, then have a big happy party when they are done. For the happy party, let them off the leash, play a little and give treats. Then put the leash back on and go back to your life. If you are not at home, confine the dog to a crate or to a small room where they are unlikely to mark.

    Two, I have a protocol that was tested with over 500 cats for successful re-training to a litterbox. PM me if you are interested because it's just too long to post here.

    Three, the best cleanser I've found is Anti-Icky-Poo. It is not an enzyme cleaner, it is a solution of bacteria that literally eats whatever is causing the smell. I learned about this stuff from a woman who specialises in "incident" cleaning (cleaning up crime scenes). It works on blood, urine, feces, etc.

    Jackson, the now world famous international quilting criminal!
    He does not look the least bit repentant.

    Since I had kids in cloth diapers lo these many years ago I have used good ol 20 mule team Borax in the wash water for odors of the organic kind. I've not had to use it on dog pee but dog beds get a strong acrid doggie odor and it works beautifully on their bedding. I'd give it a try.

    I am a pre washer so I wouldn't hesitate to wash the rest of the bolt and get on with my project. If you like the body in non washed fabric give it a light dose of starch. I often use it when cutting on the bias. That needs to be rinsed out after the project is complete or the bugs will get it.

    Jackson is cute as can be so I guess you will have to forgive him. I would wash the rest of the fabric on the bolt though and wash the cut strips by hand, adding vinegar to the water.

    My dogs are house trained. I can leave them all day and they don't eliminate until I let them out. Boy dogs sometimes "mark" territory by a squirt of pee. Scamp didn't start this until he was several years old and I had a house full of kids, grandkids and all their house dogs. So far he has never marked any fabric or a quilt. It has been objects that are easily cleaned. Scampie is almost 11 years old and I can't even imagine getting rid of one of my beloved pets.

    Looks rather innocent to me. Maybe a check of the rest of the fabric at risk is in order.

I started noticing an odor, could not figure out where it was coming from. Turns out, the little runt (weighs 6 lbs) had lifted his leg on the end of the bolt-- the fabric is mottled, so it was not noticed even with some scrutiny. I really did not want to wash the whole bolt, so now I'm cutting, and hand washing those strips that were affected as I go.

    I can tell you now, that there is nothing quite like the smell of warm ironed dog pee......and he's my daughter's dog!
    OH Sorry. Things happen when you have pets. Be glad it was not cat pee spray that smells even worst. I too think I would have washed it first. I would not want any of that stuff on my ironing board. Good luck. Cute dog though.

    You might need to use an enzyme neutralizer on the fabric before washing to make sure you get rid of the odor. I've had to do that with cat pee, which is stronger than dog pee. Spray the fabric with enzyme neutralizer, then bag in plastic for 8 hours or so before washing in the machine with detergent.
    At one time my cat peed on my daughters coat and when I washed it I put Apple Cider vinegar in the wash load. I think it's a 1/4 cup you use. Anyhow the smell came out of her coat.

    I agree and that pic says he didn't do it, that it must have been "some other dog" :)

    Don't hand wash them, put them in a washing bag and wash on delicate. Much faster and won't fray.

    You must admit, he is precious.

    My heart goes out to all those who have pets marking your property. I believe pets should be trained. If it can't be trained it is gone. I am an animal lover. I am still grieving for my husky who died last October.
