Stop Your Older Dog From Toileting Inside

puppy trainingIf there’s one thing that’s irritating to dog owners, it’s when a dog starts going to the bathroom inside and you can’t figure out why. We’re specifically talking about dogs which have already been toilet trained here and have achieved indoors continence for a period of more than six months or so. We’re also not talking about dogs which are so old that their bowels have loosened and they’re having actual medical trouble keeping it all in.

Dogs are barely removed from wolves, genetically speaking. While it might be hard to imagine, even the breeds which seem the farthest removed from this primitive origin still thinks like their lupine ancestors on occasion. Chances are, your dog doesn’t fully accept you as a pack leader if you want to see how you rate, there are a few websites that’ll show you the proper behavior.

Back to the crappy problem facing us, in the wild if a dog is lost, how do they find their way home? They don’t have GPS systems or even maps considering their lack of both technology and opposable thumbs. What they can do is pick up scents with extreme amounts of precision, specifically familiar scents.

So what’s your dog going to do? He’s going to leave a mess all over your carpet and try to guide you back to the den. Of course, it inevitably works, and you appear in the doorway while your dog waits with the best of intentions.

And now you’re made and stressed, because you were lost, of course, your dog definitely won’t make the connection between your anger and the steaming pile that’s destroyed your carpet.

So be a good leader, and your dog will no longer be trying to guide you home in its own special, fecal way.
