We have recently gotten a min dachshund puppy. Remi is 4 months old and has been pretty good a the house training thing. Until Lately.... I watch my grandsons age 2 and 1 every afternoon, they get along really well with Remi, but he has started to poop on the bed in their toy room. Is he jealous and what do I do? He is very attatched to me and has a fit if I am reading to the boys or playing with them. Any help is greatly appreciated as I don't want to have to give him away. gnrmar
Teach him to stay in an exercise pen. Make it his own space, with food, water, toys a weewee pad, etc. Put him in it when it is just you and him, get him used to it. If you are strict about it, he will enjoy it as his space.
think about it, are you an only child? How would you like it if your mom gave you up becuase you got jealous of another person. It really isn't fair to the dog. He was your only "child", now someone else is taking over his territory.
Don't allow him to be in the childs room unsupervised. He is only 4months old. You have to teach him right from wrong.
