I recently brought a Shih Tzu dog, he's so adorable, we love him so much, we usually leave him at least 8 hours alone a day while I am at work.
Every time I am back the I find him peeing on the carpets and defecating in the coaches. The house's smell so bad and he's not learning to do so in one spot, I bought him special pieces of tissue to so on them, but to no avail.
My question is, if I buy him a big crate, would it help?
But I need to leave him at the crate at least 8 hours a day, I can provide food and toys for him in the crate; but if he wants to urinate or defecate: how is he supposed to do so while he's in his create?
We love him and we don't want to give him away so any quick advice would be greatly appreciated.
