Maybe you have discovered that your older dog is toileting inside and do not fully grasp why?
Before everything else, I should ensure that we’re speaking of a dog that is already toilet trained and has achieved this for an extensive interval, for example, over 6 months.
Additionally, we need to make sure that the canine isn’t so old that it’s incontinent or suffering. If this is definitely not the case and you’re feeling that it is really a behavioral issue then I can assure you that the difficulty is simply this.
Your pet dog is almost 100% the exact same genetic make-up as a wolf. Consider the animal as a wolf in lovable doggy clothing. The way your pet dog still performs and even thinks much like a wolf! Presently the likelihood of you actually being the leader is relatively slim. Trust me…. If you’d like to go and visit to see if you are the pack leader then there is an excellent online video training site where you could notice how you fare!
Back to the toileting in the house matter, in the wild in the event that a young wolf is lost and have to find their way back home, how can they go about it? There are no GPS systems, no street signs or maps to follow along… the puppies would most likely follow their nose. They would probably pick up the aroma of the den and track it back to safety and the adult canine pack would likely ensure there was a dominant fresh scent to follow!
So now, let’s understand it how your dog sees this. You are not the dominant one that the animal feels he has to be, and anytime you leave the dog it’s doing precisely what it would do in nature to help you find your way home… and what happens?… you come back home. The thing is when you come back you are all burdened let alone mad (because you were lost perhaps?) – Nothing to do with a new rug being messed up.
