We adopted a 5 month old puppy, he's been home about 9 days and is making great strides with the housebreaking. He has almost no accidents all day long, knows to go when we take him out, etc. The issue, is that he is only this good as long as I keep him out of my kid's rooms and the family room downstairs. Those rooms have carpet or area rugs. The second he gets on on the carpet downstairs or on the area rugs in the kid's rooms he pees and/or poops EVERY time. How do I break him of this? He has very very few accidents on our wood floors, but once he's on these rugs its like he can't help himself. Any ideas?
