Hi, I have had my chihuahua for over a year. It is a love hate relationship. He is the cutest most loving animal. He cuddles under the sheets and provides endless entertainment with his antics. On the other end of the board he is very difficult. The bolting out the door and distructive behavior I can deal with, it is his revenge bathroom behaviors that have brought my family to our knees. Our house must be kept in lock down because he will sneak to my sons room and poop in the middle of his bed and pee on his pillow. He can not be trusted. He pees in the middle of the other dogs bed. I am not looking for perfection. He has his paper to potty on and he is pretty good about that. He goes out on his line morning and twice at night. I just want to be able to go through my house with out a million gates up, it is worse then having a baby in the house. We love our dog but feel so very frustrated. Crating is out we tried for three weeks, but giving him a bath after he pooped all over himself each time got tiring. Why the revenge potty? I have grown up with animals and feel I have a pretty good grasp on animal behavior, but my little one even has my mother stumped. I can't bring Ziggy over to my parents house because of the leg being lifted every two seconds. Please help us we could use some advice. People have told me I need to just get rid of him. I love him and took him into our home promising him a good life. I don't want to break that promise. Thank you, a concerned mom.
