So… as I posted in a video a couple of days ago, Lefty’s been a rather naughty dawg lately, marking his territory in the house.
For that, I put him in the “dog house”/confined him to the kitchen with a baby gate and put a pee pad under the plastic trash bin in the utility room.
I have, of course, been taking him outside at regular intervals as usual, but this tactic seems to be working. This morning he was eager to show me what he had accomplished…
Lavished praise upon him and gave him a treat, but not gonna reward him with the full run of the house again just yet. Have put down a fresh pee pad and will make sure this becomes his habitual "GO TO" spot before he’s allowed to roam the house freely without me having to watch him 100% of the time.
