Okay. Now I need help. Keoki is still peeing in the house, every day, some days multiple times and often just after he's already gone potty.
He is still making those long trails of pee all the way across whatever room he is in.
I have been unable to confine him to a smaller space simply because he manages to climb every barrier I use and I don't have the extra cash to go buy more – I'd already bought what I though would suffice. He does have access, then, to the living room, dining room, office, and kitchen. He pees in all rooms, often from one to the other.
Other than keeping him in his kennel for a week and only letting him out to potty -- which would be really hard with the entire family here all day,and him SCREAMING the way he does for hours on end when he is kenneled alone, and I'm not sure I could take it -- I don't know what to do.
We take him out every 40 minutes or so ; we always make sure he has just peed before bringing him back in. He gets treats and praise for going potty outside.
He doesn't appear to "trail" outside; he stands in one spot and pees, so this "trailing" is just indoors. I'm ready to put a diaper on him and give up.
Otherwise, he is an awesome puppy and we have no other problems with him, other than normal puppy stuff like trying to steal our food, LOL. He is smart and learns other things really quickly -- like responding to the clicker; he had that down in about three clicks. Now he'll stop doing anything when he hears it and come sit by me.
I have hung bells by the back door, but am not sure exactly how to teach him to bump them to let me know he wants out.
Words of wisdom? I am soooooooooooooooo tired of stepping in and cleaning up pee~! I've never had a dog this hard to house train before.
Oh -- he is 4 mos old.
