He just somehow manages to do it. Like a ghost. He is with me when I eat, shower, and use the bathroom. He sleeps in my bed.
Dad was on board and I don't talk to my stepmom. Ever. She acts like a child, barely speaks english, and is just all around the most irritating thing to ever walk the earth.
I have tethered him to me and then we NEVER have a problem. He only does it sneakily. I can't have him attached to me for the rest of his life, he already barely leaves my sight and when he does it's generally because he rounded the corner first and I am walking slowly.
Is there maybe a deterrent I could spray or something?
It seriously seems premeditated. Like, "Mom is stuck in that blanket and it hurts her to move. If I run I can poo under the chair before she makes it up the stairs."
Sometimes I even carry him if I am trying to get him outside and think he has to go. I always watch him when out to be sure he either poops or pees and if he continues to sniff after going he stays out until he goes again.
Lately at his "pooping times" (he often poos the second time he is put out but not always and sometimes its impossible to predict) he will go out, pee, then rush to the door, like "oh I don't need to." So I let him in and a while later back out. He usually poops.
The real trouble is like today I let him out and watched him poop. He should NOT be doing it in the house, definitely at least not until later around his dinner time, and he did it anyway. This has happened before and I just can't place it.
Today he seems to have an upset tummy but other times when he is okay this is still an issue.
