Hi there. I'm new to this site and sincerely hope this is the best place to post. I have a lovely but anxious rescue dog who is getting gradually better with his seperation anxiety. Both my partner and I work so we're out of the house for a few hours each day, often leading to 'accidents' when we return. My question is therefor 3 fold- firstly what is the best way of helping him stop peeing? He's really good when we are in but if we're not... second, what is the best way to limit the damage. We've tried the pee-pads but he just tears them to shreds and wees where they were! Thirdly, we instaled a laminate floor thinking that would be more resiliant than the carpet we had. How wrong we were. 6 months later it's buckled and swollen on his 'favourite spot'. Can anyone recommend a flooring that will be able to stand a puddle for a couple of hours a day? If we're only out a short while we crate him which he is really good with but I don't feel that it is fair to crate him for more than a couple of hours.
