The cleaner was not maintained clean then. You just smeared the dog
smell all over. Make sure the machine is clean B4 and after using it.
I have my own steam cleaner but I always keep it clean. Also I use
liquid "Oxy clean" with it often. I have a dog only now but used to have
cat too(passed away due to old age, no more cats)
I guess you'll have to do it all over again with clean(ed) machine.

Unless you literally were using the dirty water that he used this
makes no sense. Assuming you used clean water and detergent the only
smell you could get would either be a smell in the air due to a stinky
exit filter in the machine or your carpet already had old dog odor in
it and getting it wet reactivated that old odor. If it was from a
dirty exit filter the smell should go away is you air out the place.
If its from your carpet, that too should go away as it fully dries but
it could take quite a bit longer, perhaps a week to a month.
