Q. My 11 month old dog urinates in the house about every 2-3 weeks. How can I correct this?
Hi, I have a problem with my 11 month old neutered male cocker spaniel. About every 2 to 3 weeks he urinates in the house. He has stood by the door many times to go outside and then relieves himself when put outside. I give him the go potty command and treat him right after. Last night I had him in the same room as me, close by. I heard him start to urinate on the carpet. I immediately corrected him and brought him outside, he finished and I treated and praised him. But like I said, this happens every two to three weeks. Of course it sets the housetraining process back considerably. How can I effectively correct this for good? Thank you,

Diane

A. Get a dog crate an keep this dog in the dog crate.

Read the Q&A that I wrote on house training on my web site-- DOGS LEARN right from wrong in obedience training – good obedience training.

If you would like to learn more about the principles of obedience training a dog, read the description for my Basic Dog Obedience video. You will probably find that you have not had a clear understanding of the steps of training a dog must go through before it can be considered fully trained. You can also read why I am not a fan of taking an untrained dog to obedience classes. I think if you read the testimonials on that tape you will see that my customers feel the same way.
