Please help. I have a 12 week old puggle puppy that I must leave when I am at work all day from 9-6. Everytime I get home, the wee wee pad is in a ball in the middle of the floor, and of course then she poos and pees everywhere else. I have the wee wee pad in the holder but she still pulls it up with her paws. I have also noticed that she like to sit in it before and after she pees in it. Not to mention she steps in her urine and poo, and leaves a trail of it everywhere she is.
I have her in an open play pen, with a shower liner on top of my wood floors, or I would be cleaning sheets every day.
9 to 6 is a long time for such a young puppy to be alone number one. There should be a large pen at least, instead of useing the pads, did you try newspaper. What do you supply the puppy with to do while he is alone. Maybe you should look into a day care. Kongs, tricky treat balls, tv, radio, pet sitter.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
Oh dear, 9 hours alone and only 12 weeks? Poor little thing :(, if I was him I would not only pull up the puppy pad but I will chew the rims for being left so long alone :( is there no one to watch this poor thing or come visit during the day? Thgat is too long for an infant to be alone
ha ha ha ha ha - As i read the title i thought "huh, Baxter used to do that" looked like a room full of confetti - Funny
Anyway - teach that dog to go outside. The potty pads just didn't seem to work with my dog. He would jump up and grab it out of my hand before I could get it all the way out of the package. It must be a muttley thing.
As far as leaving the pup alone for a long time - definitely a bad idea. Lonely + boredom = disaster I've got to put down a new kitchen floor cause I left mine alone too long. Can someone come home during the day to take him out?
