    I just posted a thread about this issue w/my adopted Cami, 5 y/o and I've
    had her about 4 months. Cami would poo outside (sometimes) but never pee.
    As you say, I'd take her out and wait & wait & wait...back inside she'd squat
    & pee, Grrrrrr! She hates outside, period. Hates being out for walking, hanging
    out, pottying, wants to be inside, all times, forever! She gave no signals either.
    It's taken me 4 months of doing everything possible, staying on schedule, taking
    her out & waiting on her (I put a chair out there and just let her sit on the porch
    (knowing she HAD to go) as long as possible before giving up, ignoring accidents
    and effusive praise when she DID go outside...and treats!, limiting her area in the
    house to crate or bathroom and just kept plodding along.

    She has started to signal (very subtle) and I have to leash her and take her to her
    potty area if it's wet or raining and get wait too...sigh...

    I'd suggest at his young age to try midways thru y'all's day to go by and take him out
    or hire a neighbor or dog care company until he's 6 months older. Try crating him again
    and leash him when not crated as to pick up on his signals, he will eventually poo outside
    you just have to STAY THE COURSE, irritating, frustrating, time consuming & endure the
    'no fun' aspect until he gives in...and he will...eventually. Don't give up on him or your
    ability, when he starts doing this, it'll all be behind you.

    Btw, this IS a common problem w/bullies...it just is. GOD bless & let us know how it goes.

    RIP beloved boy.

    So yesterday I feed him around 5:30 like I normally do. I take him out around 6:15 or so and we proceed to sit outside for a little over and hour with him not going potty at all. I keep an eye on him throughout the night before I go to bed and he never ones looks like he is trying to go. Wake up this morning to 3 piles on the floor. I am starting him on the crate tonight.

    Good luck with the crate tonight! Just be ready in the morning - straight outside if no accidents!

    @Higgins how is the training going? Is the crate helping at all?

    Yeah, inquiring minds want to know!

    Just after I posted about Cami's great progress...she soaked my bed, GRRRRR
    I'd only let her on for a brief time, left the room and there ya go. I'd put my goose
    down featherbed and nice comforter back on my bed too! Since we've been going
    thru this so long and she's an adult, 5 y/o, and had just finished (she looked guilty)
    she got a very stern talking too, one smack on her butt to emphasize my displeasure,
    and marched outside!

    Do you know, since that day a week ago, she barks and then goes to the door, right
    out, does her business immediately, poos & PEES. Not ONE accident and again, barking
    to let me know is new. I think she's finally...put it all together and understands what she
    needs to do...I'm so happy! Hang in there, my friend...if a 5 y/o can learn so can he.

    He freaked out pretty hard about the crate. So to a way more structured routine and he has seem to take to it very well. Plus I think he missed my wife bc since she has been home he has not had 1 accident lol

    Ok so had a few accidents and I figured it out. He wont go outside if its to hot. It was like 93 out during the day while I was gone at work and I thought about the other times he had accidents and it was also very hot out. So any ideas on how to combat this?

    when you potty trained him did you have a command? My neighbors still laugh at me because in the dead of winter i was outside telling brutus "Good Poopy!" He is 8mos old and if i see him just running around or not paying attention to what he is outside for I will tell him good poopy and he will go to his spot and poop. Maybe you can leash him and try training him over again with a command.

    I would suggest getting the crate out and starting over. You may need to take him walking a bit as well to get the body flowing. I honestly think that no matter how much you clean the carpet the smell never really gets out due to the padding underneath. Good luck!
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.
