Q. Dog peeing in house. Take him out every 2 hours, sleeps in crate at night, does not pee. HELP!

Answered By

A. I would try crating him during the day apart from when you are directly supervising and playing with him. Continue to take him out frequently, praise him and play with him when he goes outdoors and do not bring him immediately indoors. Never allow him to play with you when you clean up accidents but pop him into crate or another room so this does not become a game to clean up
