    Default Potty issues

    So Dozer is almost a year old and I am still having potty issues with him. So I will take him out as as soon as I wake up in the morning and right before I leave for work after he eats. Problem is he will only go pee outside no matter how long I sit out there with him he just wont go number 2 outside. Of course when my wife gets home he has gone on the carpet. I leave for work at 7:30 and she is home at around 3:30 is that to long for him to hold it? I just cant for the life of me figure out why he wont go outside.

    Thanks for any help.

    UGH! Does he ever go outside? Does he always wait till you are not home to go?

    He's a little stinker. When I worked outside of my home, I would leave at 6:45 am, return at about 12:15 and the get home from work at 6 or so. Dudley NEVER had an accident. I took him out in the morning, let him out at lunch and then when I got home at night. I had crate trained him and he stayed in the crate until he was about 16 or 18 months old. However, Dudley will not poop in the backyard unless he absolutely, positively has no choice and can't hold it another second! I must walk him on his leash. He'll pee in the backyard, but he must be walked at least twice a day so he can poop. He's a big pain in the butt for a lot of things (crying and whining in particular), but he was fabulous at potty training. Do you walk him or just let him out?

    He just wont poop outside. I walk him like 4 times a day and he just wont do it for whatever reason. The really weird part is if I see him walking and sniffing around the apartment like he is going to go I will take him out immediately and he will just walk around and not go lol.

    8 hours is kind of a long time for them to hold it. Unless they sleep. Our Pittie that we had would maybe hold it for 5 hours for number 2... and she was 2. And of course Daisy cant hold it that long... lol

    this is going to be brutal, but you have to keep him out there (weather permitting) till he goes and then make a really big deal with treats nd love when he does.

    Are you using something like natures miracle to rid the poo smell from inside the house? Can anyone walk him maybe at the halfway mark of the 8 hours? Do you have a crate for him for when you are not home? Maybe going back to the basics is needed for a bit to get him back on track?

    We use the carpet cleaner every weekend and we use the natures miracles during the week. I do have a crate that I could get back out for him and start from the beginning.

    After he poops in the house, take a napkin and pick it up. Take him with you and put the poo where you want him to go. Let him sniff around a bit, then take him to that spot every time you let him out.

    This is what I would do. Remember, a dog isn't really housebroken if he goes at all in the house! Back in the crate..just big enough to stand up and turn around. I would leash him in the house and watch him like a hawk. It will just take once for him to go outside..and he will realize he lost that battle.

    I agree w jakeisgreat. Try the crate again n see if it helps. Also see if someone can't walk him at some point during the day. Be patient, he'll get it!
