    Who wants to take time out from playing to go potty? Think of it as reminding a toddler to use the restroom before leaving the gas station on a long road trip. Unless you do, they are going to decide they have to pee 10 minutes after you get on the freeway.

    Quote:Then you need to housebreak him/ learn to recognize when he needs to go out.

    He can't talk- expecting him to 'know' to potty first thing outside is incorrect. Conciser how many times you -go- a day... count one day... you'll be surprised.

    Yelling at a dog is incorrect, rubbing their noes in it is incorrect... Correct is taking the dog outside for then to finish (if you can lift the dog 'belly up' the often stop urinating) and praise them for going outside. (much easier with puppies)

    The guide dogs are trained with the words "Go busy" --

    You need to take him out often, very often, and NOT play if you are on a "busy break"

    On leash (even if your yard if fenced). "Go busy" if he does praise him and love on him, then take him in, then back out to play w/o leash if yard is fenced, if not use a different door a 'play' door and a 'busy' door.

    On leash (even if your yard if fenced). "Go busy" if he does not take him back in an wait an hour, do not take him out to play until he 'goes busy' (urine or feces).

    he must learn that "Go busy" means that that is his chance to potty, not play, and "It's playtime" means he's going out to have fun.

    (My pet dog only -goes- at home on "busy breaks" so I only need doggy bags on walks if she has an emergency)

    ----

    If you want you can even train him to only go in one area so its easier to clean up.
