He seems to really like the chewiness and texture of the chicken jerky the most. And yes! I definitely have Nature's Miracle at hand. I have not had his urine checked, but I do not think there is any medical issue. Just management mistakes, on my part, at times. I'm just wondering when he will ever find going inside to be uncomfortable and would much rather go inside. It just feels like he's just not getting it.
Thank you for your reply, crazy!
Ah washington! Do you have a hot water bottle with a cover it goes in handy? this tells me he could of been cold and wanted to cuddle up to you as your warm. Jessie during NZ winter(june) started whining nad barking and i told a friend and he said to try a hot water bottle well i tell you what did the trick she didnt whine or bark again! just something to think about. every night i filled kettle up and boiled the water then later pour it in hot water bottle and she snuggled close to it and fell asleep.
Also due to it being winter there he doesnt want to go out in the cold which is fair enough as i wouldnt want to either would you? best thing to do right now is put him on a lead to go toilet that way if he refuses to go outside you can pick him up walk outside close the door and tell him to go. this method worked with jessie and i had treats in my hand or dressing gown pockets with lots of praise!
Glad you got natures miracle! if the barking resumes fill a hot water bottle for him and find a snuggly cheap blanket to cover him with so it stays hot longer
