When your dog makes a mess during the dog days of summer, the smell is just … the worst. (To say nothing of cat odors, which some of our editors have previously

addressed

.) The three best-selling canine-related cleaners on Amazon include an

enzymatic bacterial spray

that’s activated on contact with poop, pee, and puke, as well as a

$5 odor eliminator

, beloved since the Reagan administration. Beyond these, we asked the following dog walkers, groomers, and holistic-pet-care owners for their solutions to the foulest of pooch accidents.

If Your Dog Peed All Over the Place

“We like that it’s organic and made in the United States. It works for all kinds of accidents — cats that miss the litter box, vomit, puppies who pee everywhere. It works through an enzymatic process and has some excellent ingredients — grapefruit, coconut oil, and tea-tree oil.” — Randy Klein, owner of

Whiskers Holistic Petcare

“Dogs aren’t at the groomer very long, so we don’t deal with a lot of big accidents. But intact males, usually the smaller dogs, will mark their territory right as they walk out the door. This cleans up those spots fast and there’s no lasting odor.” — Lisa Sawin, groomer and owner of

“This is more like a cover-up than a cleaner, but it works great for lawns, whether it’s your own or at the dog park. The green tint masks yellow spots in the grass and doesn’t wash off in the rain.” — Ryann Solomon, dog walker and owner of

“Bleach is the best germ killer, but it’s really toxic. So I also use a blend of vinegar and water to clean. And it doesn’t ruin hardwood floors. To eliminate smells, spray a blend of ten drops of tea-tree and lavender oils and eight ounces of water.” — Jay Andors, animal trainer and owner of NYC
