How do I stop my dogs urinating on concrete pavers instead of grass area?

On November 19, 2009 · 7 Comments

I have recently got a new puppy in addition to my 10 year old Boxer Dog. Now both the puppy and the older dog, when they go to the toilet, go straight out the door and go on the concrete Pavers. I want them to go to the grass area. Any ideas on how to achieve this? Also I’d like to know how to get rid of the smell of dog urine off the pavers.

I’m not an expert on dog training but I will tell you what I think you should do.

Whenever you see them peeing on the concrete, smack them on the nose (not really hard, just firm enough so they know they’ve been naughty) and directly say "no" to them.
Do they sniff the ground before they pee? If so, you could sprinkle pepper on the areas that they pee on.

To get rid of the smell… You could soak bleach on it for a few minutes then hose it off.
Or you could put, I think, a cup of white vinegar in a bucket of warm water, wipe the smelly spots with that. Then put a generous layer of bicarbonate soda over the smelly spot and the next day, vacuum it off.
I know it gets rid of smells and stains in carpet.

I hope I helped. =]

Oh and another thing. When you see them pee on the grass reward them with a treat, pat them and tell them how good they are. =]

    How often are you letting the dogs out? It seems that you may want to let the dogs out more often if they are running out the door and peeing within seconds right where they are.

    My suggestion, and it is to be used only if you understand the proper use of them, is to use a choke collar and correct the dog when it is peeing where you dont want it to.

    also, when it pees in the grass, praise the hell out of it!

    I woudlnt swat it with something..

    ADD: Also, after you correct the dog, lead it to the grass. If it begins to pee there, praise it.

    ADD #2: From reading below, I remembered a few things. WHENEVER you correct a dog, you give a firm "No" along with it so then there is association between the two. Eventually you will not have to correct the dog and only say no, and you will get decent results.

    Go to a local pet store and buy spray for encouraging dogs to go where you want. You just spray it in a part of your yard you want them to go in. Hopefully that will work.

    My dog does the same thing! I have just resorted to putting a leash on him and walking him in the grass so he has to poop in the grass. Maybe you can pick the poop up from the patio and put it in the grass and then show it to her, and watch her when she’s out there and if she starts pooping pick her up and put her in the grass and tell her "potty here!" and praise her when she does. Do this over and over again or just do the leash thing.

    First off, PLEASE don’t listen to the ‘hit the dog’ advice. That may get the message to them that you don’t want them going potty OUTSIDE (at the least). Especially to a puppy that is still in the process of potty training! If they poop on the concrete, pick it up & put it on the grass where you want them to go. (I know it’s gross, but it shouldn’t take too long for them to learn this). Then, from now on & until they learn it, go outside with them EVERY TIME they have to go potty, with them on a leash- so that you can lead them to the spot you want them going. After a week or two, they will get the idea & will go there on their own. There are products available that clean up the pee off concrete, but unfortunately concrete is very porous & the pee can soak down pretty deep, then the only option is to re-pave it.
