Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...
Are all the boys neutered?
Does Tiger ever use a crate at home?
Does he ever mark in his own home?
What are you cleaning those areas with?
Have your dogs ever urinated in your house?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
So if this were me, I'd take a multistep approach to getting Tiger to stop messing in your house:
First...I'd invest in a kennel for him and put the pp pad in there with him. As long as the kennel is in the same area of the house where the other dogs hang out, he likely won't mind, but even if he does, you should still use the crate. At least that way he's contained and not destroying your carpeting with his urine.
Second...I'd clean the spots he has urinated with a different product. Ideally, we recommend using an enzymatic product such as Oxiclean or even a biohazard product available at Home Depot or Lowe's or Menards...if you just explain to them that you're looking for an enzyme cleaner, they'll be able to point you in the right direction.
Third...if neither of these seem to work, then you may want to invest in a belly band for Tiger. This is a fabric wrap that goes around their midsection and holds a feminine hygiene product over their penis. Then, when the dog does urinate, it's caught in the pad, rather than your carpet. There's a link to it here: http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Solution-Washable-Male-Medium/dp/B000FJD5ZS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438552575&sr=8-1&keywords=canine+belly+band
I know it's tough to get them house broken...especially when they're older adults...hopefully these steps are a good starting point to saving your carpeting.
I hope this helps.
