House trained dog peeing on new rug

Here`s another great article:

Hi everyone I know this topic keeps coming up, but I haven’t found anything that works. I tried going through old posts and I apologise if this was solved and I missed it.

I have a 4ish year old Indian pariah / spitz mix. We adopted her 2 years ago.

I got a new rug a few weeks ago and we’ve had a few “accidents” (she can definitely hold it, she just doesn’t) on it. This isn’t the first time. We had to remove a rug from the living room because she kept peeing on it. She stopped doing it the moment we took it away.

She’s otherwise perfectly housetrained and on a strict, consistent schedule. This seems to be about specific rugs. We were at the vet’s last weekend for her annual shots and she got a clean bill of health. I’ve tried spot-cleaning the rug with an enzymatic cleaner. She just chooses a different spot on it — in fact she’s chosen a new spot on this rug each time. I’ve also already machine washed this rug with a bit of vinegar. I’m doing my best to keep her away from the room to prevent this altogether, but today she snuck in, peed, and went right back to hang out in her crate. This happens anytime she’s unattended with the rug. Monitoring her 24/7 is not impossible (at least right now when we’re isolating) but certainly not foolproof.

Any ideas on how I can get her to stop? Any tips for spot-cleaning the rug? It’s 100% cotton with a screen print. My usual Scotchgard fabric cleaner erodes the dye so I’m just using a bit of laundry detergent, which is fiiine but not ideal.
