How long does it take to housebreak a puppy, and why won't my puppy let us know that he has to go? We take him out regularly and watch him when he is out of his crate. Many times when he has an accident, he simply squats and pees with no sniffing or warning at all. I am frustrated already. He goes out nearly every two hours at night, and during the day he has 2 long walks and goes outside MANY times and does go "potty". Also, since I'm the usual person who takes him out, he does not want to come when I call...it's cold outside. My husband and daughters have been taking him out and doing all the "dirty work" for the last day or so and I've been trying to be the "nice guy" to help with him not wanting to come to me. He's still leery. He is only 9 weeks old and we've had him for 1 week. HELP!!!!!
