Grrrr

He's 14.5 months old.

Last night he decides that in the less than 30 seconds it takes me to switch out his pee pad for a clean one in his Ugodog that that would be a great time to do a GIANT piddle on the carpet.

(not to mention he also decided to poop on the shop floor at work earlier in the day, right in front of me..of course for that there isn't any drawn out circle dance/pacing ritual...no for that he just squats and goes instantly).

I'm so pissed off at him.

I hear you. Toby decided to start lifting his leg in the playroom and peeing there rather than 2 feet away in his litter box...

I swear if I didn't love him so much I would sell him to the circus!

For dogs who are already potty trained, and are having an occasional accident in a strange part of the house, (like when Kodi had a couple of accidents in the new rooms after we finished the addition) I remembered that someone on the forum had mentioned sprinkling some kibble on the area they are attracted to. (after though cleaning and drying, of course) The theory being that dogs rarely will eliminate where they eat. I did this on the two rugs Kodi had "offended" on. He had a great time searching for the kibble, and he has never had an accident again in either place.

Well, he did it not even 2 feet from me as I was changing out his pee pad for a fresh one. I seriously could not believe it when I looked over and saw the gigantic puddle on the carpet. I wish I knew what on earth was going through his head, cuz seriously, the few seconds it took me to change it was too long to wait??? At least when he was a puppy it was small puddles, this one was huge. I soaked it in vinegar after soaking up as much of it as I could, but he was still sniffing at it this morning. I totally didn't need that just as I was heading to bed.

He's lucky he's cute.

The kibble thing worked in the upstairs office at work where we eat lunch. He wanted to poop by the door up there all the time. When I started using a treat ball to give him his lunch in (that he rolls all over the floor up there in order to get the kibble to fall out) he stopped going to the bathroom up there too.

When was the last time you took him outside? Or is he an indoor pup only? I found I thought the boys were potty trained and it turned out that I was the one trained to take him outside at lots of times.

He goes inside on his Ugodog as that's just much easier for my setup in my apartment - so at home he always goes indoors (at work he goes outside). However, he had just gotten OFF the Ugodog so I decided to change the pad, seeing as how he had just gone and everything!

Tracy, that happened here too with Finn, though it was on the vinyl and not the carpet. He then got crated when it was time to change the paper in UgoDog.

Well, glad Brody isn't the only one. I swear he did it just to piss me off!

Okay, I know he didn't really do it to annoy me, but it sure felt like it!

Stick with it Tracy.It's about wanting to perform a behavior because it is beneficial to the them. House-training and chew-training are about developing preferences, not about right vs. wrong. A house-trained dog has been taught that it is more beneficial to eliminate here or here, and therefore has a preference for doing so. Reward the good performances and forget about the bad. He doesn't care about the Ikea. LOL
