Confusing Carpet for Grass?
We only have Carpeting in the bedrooms in our house and until recently we had not allowed our pup Captain to have 'free roam' of those rooms. He is 4 months old now and is getting much better with his behavior so we have let him have access (while we are home) to our one empty bedroom. He loves to play with his toys in there and use it as the start and end to his "racetrack" that he creates throughout the house while he plays.
We have never had an issue with accidents with him, we brought him home at 10 weeks and he has not once ever peed in the house. All of a sudden he has started to pee in this bedroom. We are thinking since it is the first room he has been in that is not hard wood/tile maybe he is confusing it with the feeling of the soft grass outside and thinking it is fair game?
Any suggestions on how we get him to stop doing this? My assumption is we will just have to let him have supervised time in the carpeted rooms and go back to basic potty training methods if he starts to go pick him up and bring him outside right away. (we have made sure to clean the spots and use a oder neutralizer, he hasn't gone in the same spot twice)
Just wondering if anyone has run into something like this and has any other suggestions!
