In order to get to the grass where Andy can do his "business" we have to exit the apartment, walk about 15 yards down a hall, go through 2 doors, descend a flight of stairs, and walk another 15 yards or so. Sounds like an ordeal but in reality it takes like 30 seconds. Andy's gotten into the habit of peeing on the stairs as of late. He just stops mid descent and lets loose a waterfall of piss. It doesn't happen all the time but frequently enough that it's a problem.
He goes out every 3-4 hours so it's not like we're asking him to hold his pee for an unreasonable length of time. I've tried verbal cues, telling him to "Hold it," but it doesn't always work. I don't know what the deal is...what I do know is that it sucks running into your neighbors when your pup is busy defiling the steps we all have to walk up and down everyday. I hate being "that neighbor."
