About 2 and a half months ago I adopted a a doberman mix puppy that was 7 months old. He had spent his entire life after being weaned in a shelter. In our 2.5 months we have been unable to make legitimate progress in potty training. He will go outside when we go out, but does get distracted easily. He won't go in the house if he can see me, but he will go in the 2 mins I'm in the bathroom. He still goes in his kennel almost every time he's in it, no matter if its 5 mins or 8 hours. It seems as if it doesn't bother him, and he doesn't really bark or whine beforehand to let me know. It doesn't matter if we went out 20 mins before. We use treats as reward when he goes outside and celebrate. He gets plenty of exercise, and his food and water are limited to our vets suggestion. I work full time. So every 2 hours out isn't an option. I've tried feeding him in and out of the kennel. I've tried making the kennel super comfy with blankets and bed etc. I've also gone bare kennel. All of these from different vet or trainer suggestions. I love the little guy, but this is beginning to get to me. I need help.
