I received my male yorkie when he was 1 yr old. I got him neutered. I take him on walks regularly. He stays in my bathroom with his bed, food, and potty pad when I'm gone (he holds it until I get home tho). At night he almost always uses a potty pad (which is great) but I found that he has been peeing in other places also (I purchased a fluorescent light). I also have to keep a baby gate up when he is in living room, otherwise he go directly up to my sons room and pees in it. It's driving me batty. I am going to rip out my new carpet (I just moved-all carpet) out of my room because of him. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions? I sure will try them!! I adore my dog.
Oh, I also have spread out his bed, food, and toys around the room to try and keep him from peeing around them.
