How often do you take your dogs outside to do their business? On average, how many times a day?
Here's the story behind why I ask..
MIL has 3 little dogs. She stays up half the night, playing on the computer and usually doesn't lay down until maybe 2-3. She wakes around noon-1 and takes the dogs out for a couple of minutes. She stays in all day, unless she has to go somewhere, makes herself dinner around 6, feeds the dogs and takes them out again for a few minutes. Around 11 or so, she goes in her room and calls for them to join her around midnight and shuts the door. During the day, the downstairs is their bathroom. Her room stinks of all the pee they leave all night and they have "spots" around the living room and kitchen where they go. One dog always poops in the same spot and she leaves it there until it dries up, so it's "easier to pick up." She screams at them for doing it inside and DH said "Maybe if you took them out more than twice a day, they wouldn't use your house as a bathroom." She looked at DH and said that twice is enough.
