Justaguy I'm thinking about putting a doggy door to the yard and hopefully that might do the trick. Ill just keep at what I'm doing with him and hopefully he will get it eventually.

She doesn't use it often because they are a schedule, but sometimes you just gotta go Just be patient, get a vet check, and keep up the routine
Ah yes -the 'look at you' signal. We had to use a cowbell attached to the door handle and teach Bear to nudge it with his nose because us silly humans didnt get canine subtlety.

Bear was a Newf, so he did everything Big. Lol

Yeah I hear you. He still just a puppy and patience is key. Im just trying to figure out if Im doing something wrong with his training. Thanks

make sure it's not a medical issue. question your
house training method.

Wouldn't that make him pee in his crate as well which he rarely does? I took him out at 12 last night and came down at 6 to take him out with no accident in his crate. Let him out and peed about 5 later after doing his morning laps lol. Im going to see how it goes today. If I suspect anything like you said Ill make him an appt at the vet.

Then it must of been a new signal. Usually he walks around in circles or like I said he whines. He was playing at my feet for the past 20 minutes and I looked down a few times within that time by habit. Whatever like you said I missed something I guess but regardless in two months of training I was under the impression that he should of been housebroken.
