    :cry:

    Our 9 month old bichon maltese started behaving strange. We took him home when he was three months old and was learning how to potty (training pads). About a month and a half ago, he just started poo-ing and pee-ing anywhere he pleases....

    Is there a way to help us? Please ;0

    thank you

    One thing to do is use soemthing like natures miracle or simple solution, found in pet supply stores and pour it on any spot your malitchon has done his business on and let it dry. make sure to saturate the spots. Dogs usually go in spots that have their smell. So if its not there he hopefully won't go there. Lots of trips outside and lots of praise for going outside. Designate an area to him outside. Hope that was of some help.

    well first off, is this definitely behavioral?

    have you taken him to the vet to be sure that there is no underlying illness?

    i would do that first off before anything else.
    has anything changed in his daily routine lately? any new people in the home? any new animals? have you changed his food? or his water bowls?

    are you still using wee pads? have you moved their location?

    sorry for all the questions, just trying to get a better grip on the situation :mrgreen:

    Changes in diet or procedure ,home enviroment ....alot of issues .Best to take to your vet first to see if there is an illness ,if not ,more than apt you will have to start over with the potty trainning .Once they get off the routine ,you have to be fast and firm in getting them back to it .

    Oh and have you tried puppy litter ? I am using it right now and it is helping alot with stubborn puppies that want to rip the pads to shreds .
