So I have a new 8 week old puppy, mutt of some sort, looks very houndish, maybe lab in there who knows. Very sociable and energetic. I brought him home at 6 weeks and put him in the bathroom with paper down. The first time I let him loose in the house I (happily) noticed he ran back into the bathroom to pee on the paper. At first he was too small to go down the short set of stairs to go to the bathroom on the lawn. He is now able to go up and down the stairs no problem. Unfortunately, he has decided he doesn't LIKE going pee outside because the grass is often wet, and the stairs are still difficult. But even when I carry him out, which I do several times a day and ALWAYS after eating, he will usually try to get back inside and off the grass without peeing. He also has stopped peeing on the paper in the bathroom, although it is still there, and now just puddles all over the house. I give hime a TON of positive encouragement every time he pees outside, and give him plenty of chances. If I catch him peeing inside I grab him and bring him outside or to the paper in the bathroom. He has also started barking at me, nipping, and in general showing behavior like he is trying to be dominant. I am worried the new non-co-operation with house training is part of this, but do not know what I should do. HELP PLEASE!!!!
