well,my question is: i put my american pit bull terrier out to do her bussniess and as soon as she is back in, she does her "job" in the back uiltly room, even after being out for over an hour!!!she is housebroken and has been very well trained.it doesn't happen all the time but i was just woundering if anyone else had a problem with this?
I wish I knew. My puppy did that to me last night three times. Caught her peeing, took her out to finish. Came back in, she immediately did it again. She held it in while we were outside. It's very frustrating. I definitely understand what you are going through.
Oh by the way Piper decided to go poo in the basement last night while I was painting doors down there. She got lazy and didn't even let me know she had to go.Boy did it stink.She's house broken to. She's 6 months old.
i think they just find a place they like. my lab is over 4 years old and i keep her contained at night because at times she would find an out of the way spot in the living room during the night. my other 2 dogs never go in the house now. i just clean the spot really well and watch them, maybe close off that utility room.
no other dog uses it in the room, she is the only one that goes in the house. the "big" uiltly room is not closed off for my dogs because my bedroom is off that room and i keep the door open for them to have more space with the 2 rooms. we have a large house but this is my 2 rooms. i kept it closed off but as soon as the door is open she is out there doing her bussness.i don't know!!??
Most dogs have thier "spot" to do their business. Once marked it can be hard to re-direct that desire to try somewhere else. What I would recommend is this,,,,clean the soiled area with a odor neutralizing solution especially made for pets. Then (this is where patience and persistance in your training will come in to play) Take the dog to a new "spot" I usually say "go potty" over and over and may even point close to the ground in order to get thier noses a little closer to the ground so they will start sniffing around. Usually they will use their new spot, take your time, if they pee first wait to see if they'll be anymore deposits! I give lots of praise when they relieve themselves in the new area. Take them out frequently, to the same spot everytime and repeat with patience and praise! Good Luck!
maybe she doesn't associate being in the run and going potty. maybe if she is in there for a length of time she does not want to soil were she hangs out. maybe try walking her to another potty spot before she comes in the house
