Re: 8 Month Old - Potty Issue

I hadn't even thought about seperation anxiety... Might be on to something there. I have never put a pad in the crate for him, but will try that for tonight. Last night we fell asleep on the couch, so I let him out when I woke up about 12:00. He slept in bed with us and I let him out at 7:00... Obvi...

Re: 8 Month Old - Potty Issue

Also, it's so weird how he is fine if he sleeps in the bed with us during the night not pissing, but put him in the crate and he can't hold it.

I really think he does it because he is pissed he is in there and not in the house.

Re: 8 Month Old - Potty Issue

How is he doing? Well... He hasn't pissed in the house for two days. Friday and Saturday night he slept in the bed with us, so that was good. Last night I let him out about 9:30 and when I got up at 5:15 this morning, he had pissed in his crate. I don't know, but it is like he can't hold the pee ov...

Re: 8 Month Old - Potty Issue

As others have said, vet visit comes first. Am I correct in assuming we are talking about an intact male here? If there is no infection, the pup is becoming sexually mature at 8 months. Sometimes this can lead to marking in the house....besides the crate, is he peeing any place in particular? Is it...
