I have two dogs (female Catahoula and male Pitbull) who were crate trained. During quarantine, we decided to get rid of the crates because we were home and could work with them on being out all day. They did great for the first 3 weeks. Now, almost every time we leave the house - from 10 minutes to 3 hours, one (or both of them)is peeing/pooping. we can't punish or redirect as we are not sure who is doing it. We ripped up our carpets last week and laid new vinyl flooring but it is not helping. Does anyone know how to curb this behavior or what steps I can take?

Go back to using crates. It is really that simple.
A confined dog when you are out is a dog that is not endangering itself by chewing things like light cords.

I never leave a dog loose in the house when I go out.

Maybe the dog just isn't used to it? I think it's just a problem here that the smell of carpets for your dogs is considered completely new and unfamiliar. In this case, you just need to wipe these carpets with a special tool. It is advisable to generally call the Brooklyn rug cleaning company to clean 100%. I have never encountered such a situation at all, if the dogs have not been in the house since childhood, then they can also start pissing in the house. In general, I think it just takes time for them to get used to it and everything will be fine :)
