In our apartment, Pit is very good about telling me if he needs to go out. If he whines at the door, hurry up and run outside, this dog is going to blow. At work he lies constantly and it's starting to waste valuable time. As soon as we walk into work, he heads to the front door and whines to go out (literally 15 minutes after going potty at home) so I ignore it until he stops. Maybe 45 minutes later he'll whine again at the door, I'll ignore it and eventually he stops. If I ignore him the whole day, he would whine on and off every 30 minutes-1 hour. If I take him out, the majority of the time he just stands there watching people, other times it's just to mark (grr) and rarely but occasionally he will be telling the truth and really REALLY has to go. I need to figure out a way to get him to stop lying. I can imagine my boss isn't very pleased with me taking my dog out so frequently on company time. Ignoring him works after a while, but the whining in the meantime is probably distracting to others. Should I continue to ignore him and not reinforce the whining by getting him out? He's a very convincing liar; I can't distinguish between genuine and fake pleas to go outside.. Oh, I forgot to mention we have a schedule that worked fine for the first several months. He goes out when we head to work in the morning, out again at noon, and then again before we go home. From then on, he doesn't ask to go out anymore until right before bed. Should I stick firm to the schedule and ignore his whining in between potty times? Thanks for any ideas.
