My pup, Duncan, is doing exceptionally well with his crate training and has had zero accidents in his crate including over night and during the day while I work. However when he is out and about and we I watch him inside he often goes by the door, sits, then will quickly relieve himself at times (usually only partial). He always goes by the door so I think he understands well enough he needs to go outside, but it's like as soon as the urge hits him when he's not in the crate he has to relieve himself. Is this fairly normal for his age? Or should I be doing something different with his training. I always praise and give training treats when he goes out, FYI.
Thanks for any insight!
