First, let me apologize for taking sooo long to respond. I have been struggling with my asthma alot lately because of the humidity & dealing with horrible back & leg pain, thanks to spinal nerve damage.
Anyway, thanks for the help & offering some ideas. We do take Javier (Javi) outside 2-3 times a day for 30-60 minutes each time. Plus, we have 2 cats & he likes to run circles around one of them taunting the cat until he chases him so he gets lots of exercise inside & out.
I also use Nature's Miracle & a few other enzymatic cleaners for any accidents/marks he might leave. Plus, I have a carpet cleaner that I use to shampoo the carpet every 2-3 weeks. He has only marked in my house twice & that was a couple of months ago & 2 different rooms. Marking the front of my husband's shirt while he's wearing it, has now happened 2 times & it was 2 different shirts. Other than that, he marks outside everytime we go out & he'll mark the same spot 3 times. I guess he's trying to make a point...I just don't know how to prevent him from lifting his leg on my husband since I can't exactly douse him with Nature's Miracle.
Where Javier having potty accidents is concerned, it's almost like he does it purposely to see how far he can push the boundaries. I say this because he'll be doing fine, then suddenly, he'll potty on the floor if you blink. But then, once he has lost some of his freedom for a day or 2, he goes right back to using his potty pads like he's suppose to do.
Again, thank you for the help & for providing ideas.
