Bonehead said:I did a 'temporary fix' with animal paths by putting up cheap tacky (to me) short wire fencing where I didn't want them to walk. They eventually made a new path and I was able to retire the fencing fairly quickly. You could also place an upside down empty wire basket over the pup's pee spot, although s/he may just relocate the toilet slightly. Or, since this is a ground cover area, perhaps plop a decorative planter in the pee spot with some pokey annuals for color and discouragement.
Re pup's choice of toileting, perhaps walk pup wherever you would like him/her to pee and give treats for compliance.
