Enzyme removers and pet deodorizers. The difference?

My boyfriend insists that any generic simple stain removal spray made for pets (baking soda formula) is going to aid our housebreaking efforts when it comes to our puppy. However, I have read and been told that an enzyme-targeting formula (such as Nature's Miracle, etc.) will get the best results when it comes to preventing the puppy from marking the same place. He's said that the idea of needing an enzyme remover is 'ridiculous', and I keep telling him it's not the smell of the actual urine, but the chemical components within it that attract the puppy.

Thoughts?

The enzyme cleaner removes the smell, gobbles it up, while the deoderizer simply masks the odour for a short period -- but would be interested in reading other responses to make sure I have that right.

I agree....it's best to use an enzyme cleaner. :thumbs up
