We have had our dog for about a year now and he still is not potty trained. We have tried everything. Both of us have pretty much always had dogs and training them has never been this hard. It shouldn't take more than one or two months for a dog to understand they shouldn't go in the house. I have a baby on the way and I know my dog will pee all over the baby's stuff. He pees all over my stuff and that pisses me off it will make me even more angry when he pees on the baby's stuff. BUT the thought of getting rid of him just puts me to tears. He absolutely loves me, follows me everywhere, waits by the front door when I am gone. Ugh I just don't know what to do I can't handle any more pee the carpet is ruined there are stains everywhere. He is a pomeranian/papillion mix, neither of us have ever had a small dog before. I don't know if it's his breed that sucks at house training or if he is just retarded lol I just don't know what to do. Advice and opinions are appreciated...

It is going to take work and if you just cant do it because your preg. which is totally understandable then perhaps finding a new home is the best thing. (I dont mean this in a bad way) You are going to have to start all over again like he was a new puppy. The dog needs to be confined when you are not in the same room with him. Get a lead and attatch him to your belt loop so he can be watched. (I have a Yorkshire terrier and have had to start over several times with her. Small dogs are sometimes hard to train). Watch when he is drinking/eating. Every 20 minutes or so take him outside until he potties.
