|I guess I am wondering why you're allowed on the couch? Why, since your mommy knows you are doing this doesn't she either keep you outside longer or pay closer attention to what you are doing and when she sees you getting ready to poop pick you up and take you outside?
It doesn't matter how long she's out there. She'll poop, walk around for another half hour or so outside, and then when we come in she'll wait until my back is turned and then do it again. That's why I'm thinking it's an anxiety thing, or an attention-getting issue. She's allowed on the couch because Misty (her sister) is always on there. It's where she sleeps during the time that I spend at work, where she sits to look out the window. It's hard to keep one dog off the couch, while allowing the other on.
Lady never does it when I'm watching, but if I leave her unsupervised for fifteen minutes to take a shower... there it is. I live in an apartment complex so there's no yard where she can just run for hours. Plus I don't think it's an issue of having to go so badly that she can't hold it... or else she'd be having accidents all over the place whether I was there or not. She gets walked many times a day, and her feeding schedule is very consistent.
There's the option of keeping her in a cage when I'm not able to watch her, but as she gets older and this continues to be a problem, I don't want to have her locked up all the time. She's not otherwise destructive and I want Misty and her to be able to play together during the day.
