Hope someone on here can give me some advice on what is going on with our little girl Zoe.
We have had her now for about 4 weeks(a rescue @ 2 years old) and the first 2 weeks were painful to say the least. She peed in ever room possible and all over the rug in our living room. After reading on the forum how to go about stopping this behavior, I took her outside every half hour for her to pee on the grass and praised and treated her for doing so. After doing this for a week all seemed fine and we slowly started to trust her as she stopped peeing inside.
In the first 2 weeks that we had her she slept downstairs in the rumpus room with access to the backyard via a doggy flap. We then decided that she was well behaved enough to sleep upstairs with us inside and this worked well until her snoring woke/kept my fiance up at night. She has been upstairs with us for 2 weeks now and no peeing inside the house at all. So last night we made her sleep in the rumpus room again.
I took her for a walk this morning as I do every morning and then when I got back I let her wander around upstairs as she normally does when we are getting ready for work and yes you guessed it, she went straight to the rug in the living room and peed. I was so mad!!!!
My question is, what form of behavior would she be demonstrating and how do we get her to stop doing this. it seems like she did it totally out of spite as if to say 'I will show you what I do if you make me sleep down stairs' Its so frustrating!!
