he keeps missing his pads and it didn't make a difference how many pads we put down. Our floor is starting to stink. So, I got him a puppy litter box and put the pad inside it. And of course, when my back was turned, he promptly lifted his leg and peed five to ten inches away from it. BAD DOG! so, now he is whining cause he is being punished and has to sit in his kennel for a little bit. Do you think he'll figure it out? We live in an apt so there isn't anywhere we can put the pads where there is no carpet. we are moving into a condo and it is the same thing. And, we don't want to put tile throughout. I really hoped the box would work. Of course, it has only been here for twenty mins, and I should give him time to figure it out, but I mean, it really irritates me that he does that! He is sevenmonths old and doesn't know how to keep it on the pad! he even poops on the carpet (often walks when he poops) or will just go next to it. And the pad is clean, nothing on it. I love everything about him, but this. I have to have major surgery next week, and he needs to use the box now, I won't be able to clean up after him. ANd, if I stay in patient for a week, will he be okay? My husband leaves at seven am and doesn't get home until almost six. No one will be home to take him out of his kennel. We can't leave food or water b/c he dumps it, and we can' tleave a pad in there b/c he shreds it. HELP!!!!!!!
