I know I have the confidence to be a good trainer for dogs.
Even though I have an optimistic view about dogs instinct about pooping.
When it comes to Hikari, I lost my confidence because of her problem dealing with pooping.
And now I’m thinking how should I deal with this problem.
As you see,
Although I managed to cover the mat.
she started to tear the packing tape one after another when I was not looking the short period of time.
I thought I’m going to let her to do what she desires and finally after that she couldn’t remove it from her leg because it has coiled around her leg.
Immediately I liberated her from it.
I have underestimated her potential.
I took the measure that I thought it’s perfect.
But it absolutely didn’t work to her.
I was comprehensively beaten by Hikari.
What should I do next?
There is the only one solution left.
Maybe she thinks that the washable cloth is her toilet because I noticed that she keeps on pooping and peeing in that same cloth when she is in her cage.
Of course when I take her out of her cage, she is doing her thing where she wants to do.
When she wants to go back in her cage, she can’t manage to go by herself because she can’t see anything.
In the first place she doesn’t worry about anything that’t why she can do anything and
anyhow she is free!
Her room’s layout was like this until a few days ago. ↓↓↓
I have lots of pink sheets just in case if it gets dirty.
But I was tired to wash them many times in a day.
I decided not to lay anything beside her place to avoid from getting confuse of which is really her toilet.
Because I want her to be familiar where her toilet really is.
Anyway, I wish her to go to the toilet by herself when she needs to pee or poo.
In the end she peed in the area where the pink sheet was laid before…”Too bad!”
I laid an addable mat in advance to protect her legs because the floor is hard and slippery.
That’s way, it’s OK!
I just wipe it off if she does on the mat.
I was optimistic that I won’t wash it every time again.
Further accident happened!
Her pee got in between the joint part of the mat and got wet at the back of the mat with cover a widespread area in the end.
Of course I can’t leave it as it is.
After that I tore off the mat in the cage, and I had to clean up the floor and the mat.
The mat has an advantages that it can add, but her pee is stronger than it…”Too bad!”
Incidentally, I feel like I couldn’t be happier and then I’m almost crying!
When she did it well.
And I praise her a lot but she messes up her pee in about 90% in reality.
There is a long way to go before I get the peaceful days.
Although I was trying this setting for a while…
She goes to her toilet and she is able to do it well is only 10%.
During worst day, she couldn’t pee in her toilet even once so she did it in washable sheet and so as pooping.
I could clean up and told her not to do that again there, that time I watched her she’s about to poop.
When I go out or sleep at night and never noticed her poop then the whole room would be messy like a hell.
Even if she’s blind her habit is to run around on the same place.
She can step on her poop on the floor and scatters it everywhere.
Her poop stick on her feet and leaves foot prints with poop everywhere.
So I want to cry early in the morning when I watched such a miserable scene.
