I inherited a 3 year old Shihtzu who frequently urinates on our floor in certain spots. I have a 4 year old Shihtzu who is house-trained, but I'm afraid that he will start urinating behind the other dog, as he smells his urination. We take these dogs out at least twice a day, if not more. Also, I hate smelling and cleaning up behind this dog daily! How can I get him not to urinate in the house - - HELP!!!
I recommend that you clean the soiled areas with natures miricle. This will neutralize the scent. Try placing the dogs food in the area that he likes to urinate. If he is not neutered then do this as well. Next, isolate the dog- place him in a crate and only take him out when it is time to go outside and when you are activly watching him. If he tries to go inside, quickly bring him out and reward him for going to the bathroom outside. Be consistant and persistant. You give him more freedom as you trust him more. vetcare
