We got Rex when he was 6 months old. He quickly learned not to go potty on our back porch.
He has been potty trained for a while. He is 15 months old now and just recently started trying to mark everything, urinate in the pet stores all the time, etc.
This is unusual for him. He is not feeling nervious, aggressive, uneasy, etc, he just simply WANTS to go potty in the store, even though he knows this behavior is not allowed. I take him out of the store as soon as he starts, and I praise him for going potty in the right area, but he does not seem to be improving.
Does any one know why he might be acting like this and how I could correct this?
He has also been obsessive about jumping on people, which is also a little unusual. I've tried turning my back to him and ignoring him when he jumps on me, sternly saying "hey" or "no", separating him from me... nothing works.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for that, too.
