Housetraining - am I crazy?
OK, we've had Lexus for 3 weeks now. He's 10 weeks old. He's doing really well with his housetraining - at least tries to go when we take him out to "the spot," hasn't pooped in the house since about day 4, has only gone in the crate once, and I think it was because I didn't wake up in time. Whines when he's in the crate at night for me to get up and take him out. I have enzymed every place he has eliminated inappropriately. BUT (and this is the "am I crazy" part) it seems like he waits till I'm not watching him, and he'll pee on the floor. Tooday, I had him tethered to me as I was working in the office and everything was good. I had to take a call, was kind of keeping an eye on him, but needed to look something up for the customer, and by the time I was done - maybe 5 minutes, he'd peed on the floor. I'd had him out about 1/2 hour earlier. Then, my son was playing with him about 20 minutes after an outside break, and when he went to get the ball from under the sofa, the puppy again peed on the floor. He was immediately taken outside. About 45 minutes after that, I was on the phone again, and he went on the floor. I watch and watch for a "sign" - sniffing, circling, waiting at the door, whatever, but the second I turn away, there he goes. He can't be doing it on purpose, I know, but it's sure starting to feel like it!
