Why does my dog keep peeing in the same spots?

Why does my dog keep peeing in the same spots?

Welcome, pet parents, to another exciting blog post brought to you by POOPH! Today, we're diving nose-first into a common pet-peeve amongst all dog owners: why do our furry friends insist on turning certain corners of our homes into their personal restrooms? If you've ever wondered why your dog keeps returning to pee in the same spots, stick around as we uncover the fascinating reasons behind this behavior and how you can put a stop to this vicious cycle. 

Let’s get into the science behind our furry friend’s noses. Did you know that dogs have up to 300 million scent receptors in their noses, compared to us humans who only have about 6 million? It’s no wonder they can detect odors with such precision! When a dog pees in a particular spot indoors, they leave behind a potent cocktail of pheromones that invite them back to continue claiming that spot as their own. 

Dogs are creatures of habit, and once they establish a routine, they stick to it like glue. If your pup has had a few accidents in a specific area, chance are they’ll keep returning to that spot unless the scent is completely eliminated. Pooph knows what makes these spots so irresistible to our canine friends. It turns out that even after we’ve cleaned up the visible mess, traces of odor, undetectable to human noses can linger. Dogs, have the ability to sniff out these hidden scents through the pheromones the urine left behind, leading them straight back to their favorite pee spot.
