Sometimes you might smell a musty smell, poo-ish smelly but more musty, it's their anal glands, needing to be expressed. Just a heads up on that one.

On one of my big dogs, when he was geriatric, I was expressing his anal glands, one was clogged (didn't know at the time), and under my finger pressure, it shot out, and the white stuff that came out almost hit me in the face. so don't be too close when you do it!

You will see the last residue on the paper towels or if bad the towel. If it is a carpet that bleeds (think asian,wool,Indian,silk,etc.) do this instead use one part cider vinger to one part water and blot after cleaning. Also if you have a high power dog dryer these work great for speeding the process non-heat setting. Sometimes stuff is left and we can not see it, I have a black light (not OCD my nose smells all things good and bad) it helps with finding urine. Hope this helps.
If you have orientals, my old room mate, whose family was in the oriental rug business, taught me this trick... Besides doing what Robbie mentioned on the TOP, also putt several pieces of wadded up newspaper underneath. You want the rug to have airflow from underneath too, for good drying. Otherwise you can rot the threads that the rug is knotted on.

Oh, Pam King also told me about a product that works MUCH better than Nature's Miracle. It's called "Anti Icky-Poo". (you can find it on line) It's the stuff that is used to clean up crime scenes, so it REALLY does the job on biological odors.

I'm a big fan of odor-mute.
