So, Apollo is doing great. He is a little over 5 months now.
I have a few questions/concerns, and was wondering if you have any tips, advice or opinions!
Apollo is crated during work hours, taken out at lunchtime for lunch and potty break.
When we are home, he is not normally crated. There are a few time when he has just gone outside to pee, my husband has gone into the shower, and Apollo pees outside the bathroom door.
It has also happened when I was getting Bella ready for bed one night- he peed in the hallway right outside her bedroom door- looking at me while he was doing it!
W has also done this when following me into the basement to do laundry... He's down there for about 4 minutes and pees on the floor... I no longer allow him down with me to avoid this issue.
He goes all night without accidents or needing to go outside, so I know he can physically hold it for 6-8 hours.
So the problem is why is he peeing inside when we aren't directly with him?!
Also, we left him uncrated In our bedroom one day for just a couple
Hours to see how he would do. Baby steps.. (We did leave down a potty pad. Just in case!)
He peed on the potty pad, but mostly just chewed his toys and slept...
At what age is it normal for a dog to be able to be left in the house without peeing inside..?
And do you think he is peeing outside the bathroom/bedroom door to get our attention, in the way a child would seek attention- be it positive or negative?
And for fun, a pic of Bella walking Apollo on a woods trail. (He is normally off leash on these trails, but she really wanted to walk him herself :-)
