What’s Pissing them Off?

But it smells so good!

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of emails about dogs who wee wee on area rugs.  I’ve researched it, there’s no science to it, except Jute!  Expensive rugs may have a backing made of Jute… and Jute smells like grass!

All of my dogs were 100% housebroken.  Then, because of foster dogs and those terrorists we call puppies, I ripped the carpet out of my dining room.  Problem solved, right?  A friend gave me a gorgeous area rug to cover up the ugly cement floor (I can’t afford new floors).  Guess what?  The dogs loved it… all of them.  They just peed on that rug to their hearts’ content.  Why?

But I’m also getting emails about dogs who want to relieve themselves on a chair, or yes… the dreaded bed!  I’m wondering if all of these 100% natural products (not synthetic) have a scent that is attracting dogs to whiz away on your furniture.  Maybe!

Before you concoct a behavioral problem with your naughty pooch, ask yourself…. 

Does your dog pee on every rug?  Does your dog doo doo on every bed, or does your dog have one favorite?

Years ago, we adopted a wonderful female Border Collie who was relieving herself on the owner’s area rug.  The owner was ready to return the dog.  Instead, I suggested that after the rug is cleaned, put the dog’s crate right on top of the area rug.  Guess what?  It worked!

If your dog has this naughty behavior, check into what products are used to making that favorite chair, rug or bed.  It might surprise you!  Synthetic materials are not “cool” today, but if you’re a dog owner, you might want to stop spending tons of money of “all natural” materials and fibers… because your dog just loves them!
