11 week old potty training issues
I have a 11 week old GSD puppy obviously and i have had him for a few months and as soon as i got him from the breeder I started with crate training. He does well with this. He sleeps at night in there and when i can't watch him i put him in there. Well during the crate training i started the house breaking process as well. Watching him all the time and taking him out like 20 mins after meals and after he wakes up and after i take him out of the crate. He lets me know when he needs to go #2 but he still urinates in the house. He holds it in is crate which i know dogs don't like to soil where they sleep. Its like if he gets the urge to urinate even if its a little he will just go regardless of where i am or where he is. I have tried praises when bringing him outside to urinate and treats but he can't seem to grasp it. Is there any tips you guys and give me or another routine to try or maybe a link? I'm really at a loss here and can't seem to get him to understand that i don't want him to urinate in the house. I heard don't rub their noses in it because it doesn't work. I would really appreciate it guys.
