|I AM HELPLESS!!! I have a 1 year old beagle/lab mix named Oliver who we adopted when he was 6 weeks old. I love him to death, and I joke that he is my "son", but he is destroying my apartment!! When we lived in a condo he was good because he was outside most of the time, (we had a small backyard and it was easy since we were away at work all day). However, we are 4 months into our lease in our 1 bedroom apartment and it seems like the only topics discussed in my life are Olivers daily outbursts!
He poops in the apartment almost every day. The first thing I do when I let him out of his kennel is take him outside. Sometimes he even poops RIGHT AT MY FEET! He doesnt tell me he has to go, he just GOES!!
My apartment now has a perminant odor due to him that I cant seem to get rid of!!! I've tried cleaning the carpet, nothing works. I am feeling helpless, and guilty because I work and am attending college, so I am gone a lot of the time and on my days off I do nothing but stay home because I feel its the only time he has to play all day. aside from that i am constantly tense and on edge while taking him on walks because everytime he sees another dog he barks and whines and puuls like crazy and its embarrassing! ther than these 2 things, oliver would be close to perfect.
