My boyfriend has a Papillon that is just over a year old and has been neutered for about 3 months. He’s been cage trained since he was a pup. He always goes to the restroom when he goes outside. The dog is so infuriating though because we will have just let him out to pee and not 30 minutes later he’s peeing on the floor. We scold him and he goes right back in his crate, but he never seems to learn.
Here’s a recent example; The dog stays in his crate while we are at work. As soon as I got home I let him out to pee, he goes about his business no problem, and I leave him out in the kitchen to play. I play with him with his squeaky bone and keep an eye on him. Not 40 minutes after having gone out to pee he stops out for the middle of nowhere and pisses all over the floor. We know he does not have a urinary tract infection and he already peed a ton outside so I have no idea what the problem is. He gets scolded with “Bad dog”, “no” and is put back in his crate.
Btw do not mention taking him outside after he has already peed on the floor, this doesn’t work. Any ideas?
