Default Housetraining Tucker


I just joined yesterday... nothing like jumping in with both feet!
Anyway, I thought I had Tucker - my corgi / wheaten terrier mix - figured out - potty wise. (He is 8 months & I have had him 4 months) but I have some questions.

He had been really good in the house for at least the last two weeks until yesterday when he had two pee accidents and one this morning. I try to let him out at least every hour or two and about 20 to 30 minutes after he eats. He just will not do anything to let me know he needs out. Shouldn't he (after 4 months with us and 8 months old) be housetrained by now? We have been trying to train him to ring a bell - and he will ring it if we ask him if he needs outside - he will run to the door and slap the bell. But only if we ask first...

I know that he is very likely to have an accident if left in the house alone outside of his crate no matter if he has just gone outside or not. If we happen to go outside to tend the farm animals and leave him alone ... He will pee on my bed and poop in my daughters room - this happened twice before I figured it out and I layed down the law to my husband and children that Tucker is NOT to be left alone in the house outside of his crate. I think he jumps on the bed looking out the window for us - and becomes stressed and just goes. Not really his fault I guess and I never punish him for that.

Anyway, I just thought I would throw this out there to you all to see if you had any comments or suggestions.
