Un-housebroken foster - Help!!
I have an 8 year old dobie here who is the sweetest, gentlest dog. He's a very good boy. He has one quirk...he hates cats. Just one flaw....he keeps pooping in the house.
We take him out, 10-15 minutes. He'll pee but then is more interested in the rest of the world than going. When he starts racing around the kitchen it's time to go. We have about 2 minutes to see and react or we're cleaning up a mess.
His original owner, who released him due to health problem, had him on a schedule where he only had to take him out once a day and that's all he'll go is once a day. We can't seem to figure out that schedule.
We had a couple problems, for a couple days he did great. Yesterday he went on the floor at 4pm after having just been out 10 minutes before. This morning he was playing with Jax and we turned around and there is a mess.
I've tried all I know. Now I'm thinking about fasting him for a day to get his system cleaned out and get him on our schedule. He seems to only want to eat once a day. I think 4 cups of food at once is alot but that's what he's always done.
On the upside our floors get mopped more now than they ever have.
