Peach is an eight-year-old Pomeranian or mini Poodle mix. He was a great beginning to his life. Since my spouse, Peach, and I relocated from our 600-square-foot city home to the 2,000+ square feet suburban house we share with a couple and our dog, our puppy has made it clear that every room is a bathroom. He poops and pees everywhere. We’ve tried to give him more time to potty but he no more wants to go outside. He just goes to a hidden place to go. We’ve tried using potty bells (he’s terrified) and closing doors However, I think the atmosphere is so different.

Wow — congrats on the big move. Moving is stressful for humans and dogs alike. You’re right that environment is a factor in Peach’s behavior. His routine is off; there’s more space. He doesn’t yet understand the ritual of going to the bathroom in your new home. He might be confused if he’s used to going to the bathroom on the cement, and suddenly we’re asking him to go on a big grass yard. The same goes for if he went on a leash and now he’s free to roam. There are several ways we can help Peach adjust to his new surroundings.

Make sure the conditions are as close to each other as you can.

If he’s used and urinating on cement, take him in the open to get him off the cement. If he likes going on walks, take him on walks. There are times when we travel from the suburbs to the city and we take an animal out on the lawn and the dog doesn’t know what to do — they don’t know this is their new go-out routine.

7 tips that will make you an experienced dog behaviorist.

Don’t punish accidents.

At the moment, using the bathroom is a reward for Peach. If he poops on the couch and nobody notices, he’s okay with it. It feels good and is a success. Even if, if you catch him one hour later and say “no,” he doesn’t understand what you’re talking about. If you do catch dogs in the act and become angry, they’ll think you’ve got a strange habit of urinating and will attempt to keep it in when you’re in the vicinity — which can pose problems when you’re trying to convince them to leave the house.

The act of bringing a dog back to its urine and rubbing their faces in this way can make them feel scared I swear. They’re not learning from that incident. Therefore, even though it’s difficult If he gets inside think of it as confusion. Don’t get mad at him.

The famous trainer Victoria Stilwell on how to prevent your pet not to using your living area to use the bathroom.

Set your dog’s diet in a timetable.

To train your dog to be in a particular location, you must be aware of the times when your dog has to go. The first thing to plan is the time when food and water go in and what goes out. It’s best to arrange water and food according to a plan. Keep a journal of what is in, and when it’s in, as well as when it comes out and what time it is that it goes out, and also where it came out. So, if your dog drinks water around 8 AM, and then goes to pee in the house at 9 AM, then you can begin to figure out the underlying causes of this dog’s biological system. It is important to be in the proper place at the appropriate time.

If you’re not able to determine the time of day or they’re not going outside whenever you pick them up, it could be necessary to confine your pet in a crate or secure by your side so you can’t let him wander off and conduct business from you. You’ll need to know where he’s at and what’s he doing. If you notice him beginning to look around, you could attempt to get him to the right spot. The goal is to ensure that he doesn’t feel the need when he’s in the house and doesn’t know which direction to take him.

A dog food measurement using any other name is unclear.

Reward, reward, reward.

If he does eventually go outside and you see him, tell him that he’s awesome. You can give him a special, high-value treat -Make it a party. In the end, he’ll realize it’s the most enjoyable spot to work from.

The main goal is to anticipate the exact time Peach needs to leave for the bathroom, so you’ll be there to guide him to the right spot. This can be accomplished by feeding according to a set schedule and making sure you keep Peach in your sight. Don’t be harsh, and don’t be scared to explore outdoor areas. It’s a huge change and Peach will require some time to get used to it and adjust, however, with patience and time you’ll soon get the hang of the suburban lifestyle.
