About a year ago my then four year old rescue starting going to the bathroom in the house for no reason that I could see. He only does it when I am home-when I am at work he never does it. I'm a pretty big homebody so unless I am at work or running an errand, I'm at home with him, every night and all of the weekends. It's gotten progressively worse over the last two months and nothing I'm doing is deterring him. I can put him out, watch him go, bring him back in, and thirty minutes later I hear him peeing on the couch. Last night I put him out at nine thirty and left him out for half an hour, I know he went, and then an hour later I got up to get some water and there were three puddles in the dining room. This morning I put him out, fed him, put him out again, and when I got back up an hour later, there was a nice big pile of poop in the kitchen.It's like he wants to go even when he doesnt really have to go that bad. I'm at my wit's end. I bought a nice rug for my spare room, and the one time I forgot to close the room off he went in there while I was on the couch and went all over it and ruined it. I have hardwood floors and I CANNOT get the pee smell out. He's destroyed mycouch by lifting his leg all down the back.I've tried showing him the accident and putting him outside immediately, I've tried shaming him and putting him in a room by himself in time out- he completely ignores me when Im talking to him, wont even make eye contact. I have no idea why he's all of a sudden doing this all the time-I feel like he's showing me he's my alpha and I don't know how to correct the behavior. Any suggestions?
