Mizmo is over a year old now. We have been trying to litter train him from the beginning. The thing is if he is gated on the hard kitchen floor, he will go in his litter box. However, as soon as he gets on the carpet, he never goes over to the box, always on the floor. Our carpet is beyond help; with the smell. I know that is probably one of the problems but I don't know what to do about it and I just don't understand why he seems like he gets it until we let him loose. I want him to be a normal dog that we can let free in our house but he is impossible to catch when he starts peeing. He's too fast and even if you catch him, he just pees everywhere. He doesn't stop. Oh well, I'm babbling on, but any help would be greatly appreciated. We ate training our new puppy to go outside so I don't know how we are ever going to get both of them trained. Please help!!! lol.
