My dog is a little 4 year old, 5 pound maltese, and she is generally really smart. She has learned that she has to go potty on her pad before she can be let out of her room (the laundry room), in the morning and whenever we come home from school or work or wherever. We take her out for a walk (or more) every day, and she poops and sometimes pees outside. But even when she has great access to her pad and a "poop" walk , she STILL finds SOMETHING to leave on the carpet! It has been happening every day. Sometimes twice a day! We’ve even discussed giving her up because its that bad. Our house is mostly carpet. We dont know what to do anymore! She knows its wrong because she gets that guilty look, during and after she does it, including when we catch her.
