We brought Snoopy home on July 5th. He is 4 years old and his previous owner gave him up because although she had bought him for her 11 year old daughter, her now 15 year old, was not participating in his care. Sounds like she had a schedule down packed, but, nevertheless she gave him up. She said he was housetrained, which was a major factor in us taking him, but now we see to the contrary. Not having had a dog in such a long time, I don't know what to do about the major issue with Snoopy: -he frequently pees on my leather recliner in the family room, (which is where is is for the most part now). And he will pee even after having been taken out within the last hour or two. The previous owner had him using the training pads. But he mostly pees on my chair, or something else or somewhere else in the room. I don't want to put him in a crate, but I don't want to have him continue to pee on my furniture, etc., and I'd like to get him away from the training pads. Help!!!
