“My dog is pooping everywhere and we never know how big of a mess we will walk into each morning.” Jake and Ashley actually had two dogs so the problem was double-trouble.
They were looking for strategies and solutions that would work for them. I wondered why Missy, a 2 year old Schnauzer and Buddy a 18 month old Lhasa Apso were still peeing and pooping in the house at their age?
Plus, in addition to their house soiling issues, Missy and Buddy had some other minor issues like barking at and jumping on house guests when greeting them at the door. I definitely got a good sense of the barking/jumping problem first lesson when I walked into their home. But barking and jumping definitely took a back seat to their house soiling problem.
