The Best Way to Clean Pet Urine From Carpets

The urine that went into your carpet and possibly into your carpet pad and that can and probably will smell.
Let’s first set some quick ground rules. The size of your dog and the gender of your dog play a big role in your chance of a successful outcome of your DIY endeavor. Obviously the bigger your dog, the bigger the accident, the more there is to clean-up. A Chihuahua by its mere size will make smaller puddles then a Golden Retriever. Enough said.

Can anyone recommend the most effective way to deal with dog urine in carpeting? Certainly to begin the cleaning process asap is best, but not always possible - particularly if you are a landlord. I have tried numerous methods involving blotting, soaking, scrubbing, drying, brushing, etc. and all kinds of special carpet shampoos, enzyme neutralizers, absorbent sprinkles, room deodorizers, buckets of cold water, spray bottles of warm water, rug scrubbers both large and small with various attachments. Despite my best efforts, I cannot conquer the stains and the smell. They never go away - the dogs smell their "favorite spot" and the cycle begins again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
