Good grief, if Bailey does not learn to potty outside soon I am going to lose my mind!
Took him out at lunch today. He peed. We go back inside. He poops.
He doesn't always do this. But sometimes he does. So I don't know what I am doing wrong.
I am at my wits end. It isn't a little puppy pile anymore. It's a 30 lb dog pile. And it STINKS.
We watch him, we take him out frequently. But sometimes he just runs poops before we can even get up to stop him.
And on another note....
We are moving soon and he and Zoe will be home alone for about 8-9 hours without access to the outside to potty. I can't leave him crated for this long so they will have full range of the basement (it's not finished). I plan on getting a carpet remenant to put down and some cozy doggie beds. They'll have their toys and lots of room to play. I planned on giving them food and water in the morning, letting them out to pee and poo and then withholding food and water while we're gone, giving it back to them at dinner time. That way, they aren't eating and drinking all day and having to pee and poop all the time.
Is this unreasonable?
What do other people who have more than one dog do all day while they are at work?
I just know Bailey is going to poop and pee all over the place the first couple times, maybe weeks. That's why I am utilitzing the basement. Easy clean up.
But this is driving me insane!
He's 15 weeks old...shouldn't that be old enough to only have occasional accidents?
