Normally I don't care for crating dogs; but to curb this particular problem (unless you're home all the time) you may need to as the pp stated...
When we adopted our female she had been kept in a cage for a dog 3 times her size; so to her going to the bathroom inside was perfectly acceptable...The first time I walked her and she came back inside and immediately peed on the floor that was IT!! After that I would walk her and if she didn't go I'd tie her up right outside the front door (where I could see her); wait 15 or 20 mins and go walk her again over and over and over til she'd finally go; then and ONLY then was she allowed back inside...It took about a week for it to sink in and she still takes forever to go...

Next question overall
Do you think a lot of CM members are uptight and take things sooo seriously?
