Dogs don't come up from the breeder already housebroken thus one of the first trainings a dog owner has to undertake is to train the dog to use its own bathroom. However, even pets well trained to defecate and urinate in the designated spot would still have accidents inside the house.
Any pet owner would be pissed if the pet that is already on the easy to clean tiled floor would still move to the carpet to do its smelly business. Can the dog have a grudge to settle and it is punishing the owner by making a mess on the carpet instead of on the easy to clean tiled floor? The smell of dog urine is horrible as it can gag anyone with the toughest nose thus it must be removed immediately.
The spot soiled by the dog's urine must be cleaned not only because of the unsightly stains but also because dogs have the tendency to eliminate on the spot that has the smell of their excrements. Dogs have sensitive noses and they will be lured by the smell of their poop and pee to soil the same spot again.
Removing the dog's urine from tiled floors would be easy as you only have to blot the urine and use odor removing cleaners or a mixture of water and vinegar to eliminate the urine smell. If you can still see the puddle slowly being absorbed by the carpet, the first thing you need to do is to get some old towels to absorb as much of the urine as possible. Towels are absorbent but you can help soak the urine by stepping on the folded towel to apply pressure. Replace the soaked towel with another and when urine is fully absorbed, you can sprinkle baking soda on the soiled spot to remove the horrible smell of the dog's urine.
Cleaning urine would be difficult if the urine was already absorbed by the carpet as the urine will move farther out and can no longer be soaked by the towel. What you need to do is pour half a cup of vinegar and water mixture to the stained spot. After about five minutes use a folded towel to soak the vinegar/water mixture as well as the urine. After the urine is thoroughly soaked deodorize the stained spot by generously sprinkling baking soda. And then run the vacuum cleaner to remove remaining liquid.
