Dogs peeing on plastic bags is a pretty common problem, but why do they do it? And more importantly, how can you prevent your dog from doing it?
In this blog post, we’ll answer those questions and provide some tips for dealing with this behavior. So if you’re struggling to keep your house clean because your dog keeps peeing on plastic bags, keep reading.
Dogs pee on plastic bags to mark their territory. It’s a way of saying, “This is my space and I’m claiming it.” When a dog pees on something, they’re leaving their scent behind.
Dogs love plastics because they can carry a lot of scent. And since plastic bags are often left lying around the house, they’re easy targets for dogs who want to mark their territory
Tips to Prevent It
The best way to prevent your dog from peeing on plastic bags is to keep them out of reach. Put them away in a cupboard or closet where your dog can’t get to them
If you have a garbage can with a lid, make sure it’s closed so your dog can’t get to the bags inside. And if you’re using plastic bags for storage, put them in a container with a lid
You can also try spraying the bags with a deterrent like lemon water or vinegar. This will make them less appealing to your dog and hopefully discourage them from urinating on them
Dealing With the Behavior
If your dog has already developed a habit of peeing on plastic bags, you’ll need to be patient and consistent in your efforts to stop it
Start by cleaning up any accidents with an enzymatic cleaner designed for pet stains. This will remove the scent of urine and make the area less appealing to your dog
Then, take steps to prevent future accidents by keeping the bags out of reach and using a deterrent spray. Finally, be patient and consistent with your training efforts and you should see results over time.
