Today I came home to frustrating news. After a long day of work I came home to find a throw rug hanging outside with a bottle of Pee Pee Be Gone next to it. I knew immediately Nemo must have had an accident.
As it turned out, it was not an accident. It was intentional. Nemo has been ringing a bell to go potty for a couple of weeks and he hadn't had an accident since. Even before that, every accident he had was right next to the door.
My husband tells me that Nemo gave almost no warning, didn't ring the bell, and just squatted on a carpet in the middle of the room. It seems that this new behavior has been brought on by Nemo spending time with my brother's dog.
Caicos, to no fault of her own, has received almost no training and regularly pees in the house (especially at my mom's house). Both dogs were at my mom's house today. Caicos peed and then so did Nemo. Apparently, Nemo liked the trick so much he brought it home.
No accidents in weeks and then twice in one day! Ugh I guess we are back to square one and treating him like a baby again. It's very frustrating to put in so much time and effort training him and to have him revert because he is around a poorly trained dog.
