Help! My Coton de Tulear Is peeing in the house
by Alecia Midgett
My Coton de Tulear, Wilson, is now 5 months old and peeing all over my house!!! Not just one place BUT EVERYWHERE!! We bell trained him from the beginning. He seemed to get it !! We took him out every 15 minutes for the first few days and then every hour for the first week. He is with me most of the day and when he is not, he is in a pen (like a kennel but bigger). He kennels at night. He can go all night and any amount of time in the pen. The second I turn my back on him...he pees in the house. The only option I can think of is to keep him on a leash (which will drive him and me crazy) When I kennel him (when we are home) he barks like a mad man and keeps my kids awake.
I am running out of ideas and towels, clorox wipes, urine cleaner. He is going on carpet, tile...ANYWHERE.
We use treats...bags of treats!! I have lost my temper a few times, but that does not work at all..so I try to stay calm. Most of the time I find it to late (by a few minutes) and can say nothing at all. I just clean and clean and clean. Recently in the last 2 days, he has started to poop in the house also. He was not doing that at all...he would go to the back door to poop out side. AM I MISSING SOMETHING!!!!
