My little Castro is close to being completely potty trained. We take him out to our yard immediately after he gets up, 10-15 minutes after he eats, and throughout the day when we see him sniffing around, or when he sits by the stairs.
Here is my dilemma...
I have a cowhide rug in my living room - - no matter if he just came from going outside, he still finds it necessary to go there and tinkle on it... He doesn't pee on any of the other area rugs - just that one!
Also - although he knows to pee on the wee pads in the middle of the night (just like mama - - not peeing on the wee pads, but going pee in the middle of the night!), Castro doesn't like going out when its' raining, and refuses to poop on the pad (again, like me - neither of us want to get wet!)...
We take him out to the yard to go poop, but all he does is run back into the house... I even carried him out, put him down where he normally goes... Castro then just sits down, looks up at me, as if asking me if I was crazy, then runs back to the house... doh!
We know he needs to go, and even if I place him on the pad, he would walk away... He had an accident earlier today, where he walked away from the pad, and just pooped on the hard wood floor. (if you gotta go, you gotta go...)
Do Havanese, in general, not like the rain??? Or do I just have a prissy puppy??
Any suggestions on how I can correct this?
