We have a 13 week old female tri named Zola. We are a family of four; parents and two boys 10 & 5, plus a cat.
We have been working on the potty training since the day we brought Zola home. She has a grassy spot in our back yard where she is always taken to do her business. Since we live in SoCal we leave a back door open so that she can let herself out to go potty, which she does occassionally, she is still learning. The rest of the time we take her out to her spot and have her go potty, and she is very good about it.
Yesterday she went in the house 4 times. This morning while I was getting dressed for work, she was getting into my closet wanting to drag things off to play. I told her "no" several times and each time redirected her toward the door. After the third time, she turned her back to me and started going pee on the floor! I told her "no", picked her up and put her outside.
So my questions is… Will a Basenji pee right in front of you if she is angry at you for some reason? Can they be spiteful?
We give her so much love and attention. I don't understand?
Any insight on the issue, and correcting the behavior would be appreciated.
