Ok I have had my puppy for going on 3 weeks now and so far he has learned to go pee outside in his SPOT on comand. He pee's and poops just fine and squats multiple times so I know he knows to do his business outside. My problem is this...
Right after we go outside, I'll bring him in and he will pee in the house! Sometimes 2-3 times within 30 mins of us going outside! I know puppies need to go outside after eating, playing, and drinking lots of water but when he is just chillin, I'll bring him outside at his normal time and then he will pee inside too. He is 12 weeks old now and he is able to hold it for 6 hours in his cage when we have him in there at night and during the day, but when it comes to time out of the cage, the nightmare starts!
I am trying to get him to hold it for longer then an hour, but everytime I try to get past an hour, he pees right at the hour. So for alittle more then a week, I decided to take him out every hour BEFORE he was able to pee inside. Now im trying to ween him back to an hour and 15-20 mins but he doesnt seem able to make it. So he pees inside.
How do I train him to hold it longer then an hour? And how do i get him to stop peeing inside, especially when we just went out 20 mins prior. I do leave the water bowl down because I have an older dog who drinks leasurly and I know this probably contributes to the FREQUENT puppy urination, but at the same time, My older dog won't drink water unless we are home (due to being able to hold it himself knowing we can take him out if where here and vise versa when we arn't) so I need to allow him the opportunity to drink water if he likes to. And what makes it harder is the puppy is out when we are home at the same time the older dog would drink water, so how do I handle the water bowl while training my puppy but still allowing my older dog option to drink leisurly?
And if the water bowl isnt the issue, (which i feel it isnt since the puppy is more occupied in playing then drinking) what else could contribute to his ability to know to pee outside on comand to get a treat and his issue of peeing indoors?
