Kemo is ok during the day....when I first got him he would pull the dish towel down and throw the paper bags all over but now he knows when I am leaving now and he goes to his bed (I keep him gated in the kitchen) and I come home to a neater kitchen. I always left newspaper out for him to go and he would but now he holds it all day about 7-7.5 hours. No more mess for mommie to clean up! I also leave the radio on for him. I have no idea now if he likes this but I figure the noise might keep him calmer...I put jazz on for him When I come home though he freaks out and has SOMETIMES has submissive pee or hahahhaha I can't hold it any longer pee.......he acts like I have been gone for years.....some days it's all I can do to get him to calm down so I can get his leash on. Normally I could walk away to calm him but not when he has to go so bad.
