MY One 1 year old shih tzu driving me crazy
recently I got a 1 year old shih tzu boy. He was previously owned by a friend moved to another country therefore he gave he his dog.
My friend told me the dog was potty trained. After i brought him home the first thing he did was pee around almost every corner of my house. i immediately bought a metal cage fence and fenced apart of my apt off for him. in the fenced off area i put his pee pad, his bed, his food bowls and his toys.
he seemed to do his things in the pee pad when im around. however when i leave my apt, my shih tzu seems to be able to jump over the fence. Everytime i come home he is always out side of the fence. and of course, he has pee and poo everywhere in my house. But when I am home, he always pees on his pee pad.
Is there anyway i can let him stop peeing around my house? and I was also wondering why he only jumps out of the fence when i am not around.
It is driving me crazy to come back to my home with pee everywhere from a long day at work. This shih tzu also always barks when i leave and sleep as well.
I love this dog so much and he is very cute and lovely when I am around, but i just cannot get him to stay in the fenced off area when I am not home.
Any tips or ideas on what i can do? I tried taking his toys away when he does something bad and i do give him treats when he does something well.
I just dont know what i can do anymore.
