I've had my dog for a month now, and we still take him outside every 2-3 hrs. He's 13 mths old....why all the sudden would he start going poo in my dd's room??? this last time was awful! he pooed and then wiped his bottom all over her room!!! i was livid! I did put a gate across the stairway to keep him downstairs and hope that he doesnt' start doing down here now too...but why do you suppose he's suddenly doing this???
