House breaking was going great with our 4 month old boy...or so we thought. He has been scratching at the backdoor since the first week he lived here (10 weeks old).
The only glitch is when we focus our attention on something other than him, even if he has just gone out for a pee, he will sneak up to our bedroom and take a little poop. For example, I work from home, Monday when I sat down to work...revenge poop! He did the same thing last night when our neighbor came over and we were talking, he had just been outside! Trust me, he gets TONS of attention, but I've got to work! He knows he isn't allowed to go in the house because he will sneak and hide to do it.
The bedroom is the only open door upstairs because that is where we keep his crate and we want him to have access to his "den". If he is tired and it is too busy downstairs he will go up there and go to sleep or chew a bone. Should we close the door? Baby gate the steps?
