Oh he's soooo naughty! Well, not usually, he's usually VERY good. However, a couple of days ago, one of my jackets was on the floor, we had been walkies and got back, was about to take him outside as I knew he would need to pee cos he didn't do it on the walk. Before I had a chance, he had decided to "dig" on my jacket and peed on it. I ignored it, cleaned it up and put the jacket in the washing machine.
I washed said jacket, took it out of the machine and put it on my bed while sorting out the airer to put it on. Bertie, well, he discovered said jacket, did the diggy thing again and peed on the bed not the jacket this time. So, as I didn't actually catch him in time, I ignored him and cleaned it up.
Today, we went for walkies and again, he didn't pee while we were out. Got back and we were both quite wet cos of the rain. He jumped on the sofa all excited to have his coat taken off and a rub a dub dub. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see him standing in a "strange" position but didn't really take any notice. Oh my word, HE PEED ON THE SOFA this time!! Once again, an item of my clothing was around so maybe there is a connection.
Anyway, I "scolded" him (for want of a better word), cleaned it up and proceeded to give him the ignore treatment. He was waiting for his dinner cos I feed him on return from the second walk but I didn't this time cos I thought he might see it as a reward for his peeing on the sofa.
I waited half an hour and then fed him and the cat as normal.
Now, I am hoping I can prevent this happening again by taking him to my patio BEFORE bringing him indoors if he hasn't peed on his walks, however, I feel I need to prepare myself for the fact he might just start going through a phase of doing this, especially if I don't handle the situation correctly.
So, if anyone can offer me some advice on a) how to prevent it (other than keeping all my clothing well away from him) and b) how to deal with it if and when he does it again both if I catch him at it and if I find it just afterwards.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. He's coming up for five months now and is showing signs that he may start to cock his leg fairly soon so I guess this is all tied in together.
Anyway, any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Bless him, the little pee pot! lol!
