ok so the dog is not mine, its my sisters and i have been staying with my sis for the past 3months, she got the dog 10months ago yet it is still not house broken. i had a puggle who seemed to easy to train compared to this beagle. the dog goes out every morning for a few hours and then is let in at lunch time and fed but once she comes into the house she pees and sometimes even poos. this has been going on before i moved in and still is goin on. my sis rarely walks the dog or spends much time with it, is it something to do with that?? i feel sorry for the dog but i am moving out soon so dnt want to get attached to it or start lookin after it for my sis but i want to help her by telling her how to get it to stop doin this, i told her how i did it with my dog but that didn work, anyone have any ideas???
Like with the newspaper if he poops inside place the poop outside where you want him to go. Take him to the spot and give a command like "go potty" or "go poo" When he does go out side make a huge deal out of it. Get excited and say "good potty" or "good poo" whatever the command is that way he makes the connection. Then give a treat. If he doesn't go outside then when he comes in put him in his crate. Anytime he is out of the crate keep an eye on him at all times. When you see him going to the spot where he pees/poops then get his attention and take him out. Anytime you are too busy doing something(housework, kids) to keep your eye on him then he should be in his crate.
