We have a older dog (he is 8 now) and we got him as a puppy & he was pretty easy to housebreak. We got a golden retriever puppy a month ago, and he is so hard to house break, he did better when we first got him than he is now. We take him out every 1 1/2 hours through the day. He is given his food & water 3 times a day. HE will over eat & over drink if we leave it out all day. (vet said that its normal for puppys to do this) He still pees all day long, right after he comes in he will pee. We went and got a huge cage for him. We did what the vet said to do as far as crate training him. Well he still pees even in his cage! We DONOT leave him in the cage all day, I feel bad for him when he is in it. Which is at night & when we leave the house.
But how do you house break a stubborn puppy? He is just 12 weeks & he is doing better, but I want him to do his bussiness when he is outside, NOT WHEN I BRING HIM BACK IN THE HOUSE.

i came on here looking for the answer to that question! i have grand-puppies that come to visit. a 4 month old cocker spaniel that belongs to my son. smokey the bear, or smokeyb is his name. he spends a week at a time due to son's travel schedule which worked out fine until this visit. he is like a little boy that waits too long, and he knows its bad to poo in the house (always by the door to outside) but doesnt know how to tell us. i too take the puppy outside. how do i encout=rage him that it's ok to poop, just not in the house. i praise the daylights out of him and tret at him when he does poo outside.
