We have a one year old blue heeler/collie mix. He has a bad habit of going up to the third floor room and peeing on the carpet. We have tried to keep the door shut, but the kids will still run up there and then leave the door open. I asked the vet how to stop him from doing this. We have cleaned the carpet, but it seems like in the past month he is obsessed with going up there and relieving himself. Does anyone know why he does this? WE can't afford to keep cleaning the carpet(renting a steam cleaner) nor can we replace the carpet either at this point. Not to mention the fact kids can't play up there now.
My SO now wants him to be an outside dog, which I think is cruel. Especially living in the desert. I don't want to get rid of him either. Which i'm sure will be his next request. So if you know of why or how to get him to stop I would appreciate it. he goes out w/the kids or sits by the door if he needs to go.
