I am failing my dog please help.......
I have a 4.5 month old GSD male puppy who is very energetic loving and smart. I got him when he was 3.5 months old from a friend who couldn't take care of him.
1. Basic training has been very good, eating from his own bowl only, sit, stand, laydown, come here... etc.
2. I have one really big problem with him, as soon as I leave the room for only a few minutes I come back to pee puddles on the floor, he does not do this while I am in the room though. He holds his poops until he goes outside but the pee problem has been tremendously overwhelming. I have run out of ideas on what to do. I leash him, i take away the freedom of the house so he doesn't go on the floors. Whenever we walk outside and he pees i give him a treat and praise him and as soon as hes home and some time passes and i step out he goes and pees on the floor.
I feel like I am failing this dog and I am trying my best to do the best training and support possible. Please help me.
