New house smells of old dog

We've just exchanged on our dream house, a massive renovation project which has a very stinky dog odour. The house has sat empty and unventilated for a while as it's a deceased estate and we will be ripping up carpets and opening windows as soon as we have the keys. Any top tips to eliminate the stink or will the renovation and redecoration get rid?

Once the carpets have gone, the dog pong will go. We did a massive renovention 18months ago , hope it all goes well.

Yep get rid of any material stuff, look out for any damp areas where they may have peed and use loads of flash then wash everything in that lovely zoflora stuff!

We had the same in our renovation project, time and lots of ventilation helped in some areas, but it needs to be maintained. In one room we removed a strip of carpet down to floorboards due to the pee smell. In another it's mostly fine but occasionally we get a very doggy whiff. I'm certain it'll go when we get rid of that carpet (soon!)
