Hi i am new to the site and am very much enjoying reading all the great advice on here,we have 2 dogs a shihtzu/chihuahua mix and an american bulldog mix. The prob I am having is with my sisters dog. He is a yorkie (was supposed to be a mini but he is the biggest mini I have ever seen-12lbs!) Anyways she is staying with us for a while, and he has urinated everywhere and continues to do despite her constantly claiming he is house broken. She has now started to say that it was my dog Mylo (the shihtzu) who is very much housebroken and never in the areas, that have been marked, alone. I know its a yorkie quality that they have bladder problems, and Tex def. does, he urinates when he gets happy, when he runs, when you call his name, when he wakes up from a nap, pretty much all the time. My question is does anyone have any suggestions on how to housebreak this dog that has ruined two rooms and a loft in my house (we are now having to replace the carpet in the loft after him because my sister has now refused to clean the urine up since she believes it wasnt her dog-my dogs are kenneled during the day) but anyhoo, so the stains sit there until we get home and have to clean them ourselves. The ones in her room and the room my neice is in just have not been cleaned because she doesnt believe he has actually urinated in there and feels its just the puppy pads that smell like that. I am very much commited to saving the rest of my house and helping this dog, but I really need help on how to housebreak a dog that is almost 2 yrs old. Sorry its a novel but I was afraid the situation wouldnt fully make sense with out the story!!
