Hi, i'm fairly new at the whole pet potty training thing. And i had it going great. i got my puppy (A 6 month old male boxer) totally trained. Pee, Poop both outside, for a while. then he started peeing in the house again. but more importantly his new fad is to jump up on my bed (or my parents bed) and pee right there on the blankets and mattress. We usually have to clean up pee at least once a day. And he never asks to go out, like he used to. He gets a swat on the behind with a light rolled up newspaper when he does "bad potty." i guess my question is "Why did he revert back to peeing in the house, but more importantly, why is he peeing on our beds?"
SOMEONE PLEEEEEASE HELP ME!!!!
P.S. If someone can help me with a way to get him off this bad habit, i would be very happy
Also to add... the puppy sleeps with his mom and dad (mom and dad boxers are each 2 years old) in my parents room. he does not pee in their bedroom at night while sleeping. but if they lock him out of the bedroom he will run rampant chewing things up, peeing everywhere. its almost as if he is trying to punish us for singling him out by doing these bad things.
i have never had a single dog of mine ever pee on a bed of mine. but apparently it seems it is sort of a common place for some dogs to go. some pups will revert back to "bad pottying" even though they have been perfectly housetrained for awhile. just go back to the basics with your boxer and he should be back to normal in a few weeks. limit his access to your house,ie: keep him confined to only certain areas so you can try and catch him before he makes a mistake.
Hes six months old and starting to get harmones. Is he altered? If not, hes starting to get the callings of testosterone. Your bed is one of the most odorious places in your home. It smells like you, so hes marking it to state his pack position as well.
Also hes growing. I feel around 6-9 months most large breeds brains fall from their heads and roll under the couch for a while. Just revert back to puppy training, put him back on a consistant schedule, until he works through this latest phase.
