Aargh! It's been too long since I did housebreaking on a pup, and I've NEVER done it in the winter! Any advice? The little one is 9 weeks old, and a boxer mix, so he has really thin hair, was pretty malnourished, and HATES the cold. I broke down and bought him one of those little dog coats (shiver) to make it more bearable, and that seems to help keep him a bit calmer. However, he does a quickie pee, then runs right for the door. I hold out til I get him to poo, but when we come back in 50% of the time he pees again within minutes. He is SHARP, I am sure of that... and he is a stealth piddler- barely slows down his pace to let it flow. I'm just not sure how long to keep him out there in the cold, waiting to see if there is more in that little bladder. I'm crate training him, he does great in there (not a single accident, and I totally crashed one night for 9 hours), but I feel like he's going to have to spend 95% of his time in there if we can't get this under control a bit more. He's playing me! Please help! Even encouragement that I'm on the right track would be a nudge in the right direction.
