View Full Version : Please help!!

i posted the question yesterday about my older chihuahua peeing on the carpet in the front of his litter box because of my puppy chihuahua occasionally using his box instead of its own.....my older keeps peeing on the carpet and i can't get him to stop....I've tried praising him when he does use it, reprimanding when he doesn't and nothing seems to work! He is getting just as much attention as the new puppy so he shouldn't be that jealous or feel that left out...please help!!!:crying:

I don't think this is a jealousy issue or anything like that... the fact that your dog is going right next to the box (that's the only spot, right?) indicates to me that he's still trying to do the right thing, he's just shocked and dismayed to find somebody else has been using his box.

If the suggestions in my response to your other post don't work, you may need to go through a short period of re-housebreaking the little guy... I'd suggest using the puppy airlift (http://www.thehousebreakingbible.com/training/puppy-airlift.htm) and/or umbilical cord training (http://www.thehousebreakingbible.com/training/umbilical-cord-training.htm) methods for a while until he gets back in the swing of things.
