I don't know. A lot of people say that dogs do not do things because they are angry with them but wow I disagree lol. Teddy did that VERY often when he was a puppy. Peeing was his way of saying up yours lol. If he wanted to play and you said no he would pee. Even if he was outside 5 minutes prior to that.

maybe you should make the crate a fun place to go With teddy we always gave him lots of treats and usually a kong with something special inside. Also do you use a command to get him into his crate at night? that might help but these are just things that worked for my puppy

He is told bedtime when we crate him even if it is daytime. He has a kong stuffed with peanut butter, a chilly bone, a rawhide[which we monitor closely], a rope, a ball, and a tug teething chew toy. We always put a handful of cookies in before he goes in as well. He does this in phases. He's fine for three or four days then he does it for three or four days and that is his routine. Right now I'm frustrated, I keep threatening to just leave him in the crate but of course I don't. It just seems he gets so mad when we crate him, he won't even look at us. He does this even if he is in the crate for 5 mins and was just out. If I just crate him so I can take a shower he pees in there. He is from strong working lines and he gets loads of exercise I think, 1 1/2 -2 hour walk in morning, 30 mins at least off leash in the field at noon, and 1 1/2-2 hour walk at night. He goes out in between but just to do his jobs and come back in. He only does this when locked up whether it be in crate or in the bathroom. When he is loose with us there are no problems he'll do 5 hours consistently without peeing on the floor. I'm at a loss but will continue to listen to what others say and hope eventually an idea will work. You never know until you try and I'm willing to try anything.
Thank you!

My puppy was HORRIBLE at going in his crate, in the house, and just ANYWHERE that he wanted to go. We got him at 7 months and he hadn't been housebroken in the least bit. He would go during the night in his cage (and not just pee) he would go in the house on the floor (agian not just pee) he would go like minutes after you took him outside. Just be patient (I know it seems hard to do now) he might possibly get better after being neutered (if you plan on neutering) our dog was still having accidents in the house up until he got neutered and then he never had an accident agian. Some puppies it just takes more time than others. Also, for the food, people here would suggest foods called Innova, Eagle Pack, Canidae. They are more expensive but you feed less of it to your puppy. I know that Eagle Pack and Innova have cheaper products too but I just forgot what they are called (brain fart...sorry). I'm in the same boat as you, we have a toddler and not a lot of extra cash to go around but we can afford that. I think Nutro would be ok to feed as well, although I think people here don't like that food either. It's ok, my dogs ate it for a time and they didn't have any adverse effects. Foods like pedigree, Iams, Science Diet, and Eukanuba are garbage though. So is Ol' Roy. So try to stay away from those brands of food becuase they don't give your dog the nutrition that they need.

Wow that's a stubborn one. I think your best bet for now is to just monitor him very closely when he's free in the house, and really train him hard not to chew or steal stuff, so that you can leave him free eventually. What I did with my puppies is just confine them to one room with me, and get them used to chewing on their toys. I didn't have many problems with Boris once I let him free in the house, and it's not really puppy proof, but I guess he's big enough that he can't get behind furniture etc... And there is really not much he can destroy, but it's because we trained him not to jump on the table (he still steals stuff from the kitchen counter though...).

Monster that's what we should have named him. Yukon just doesn't seem to fit. But we will keep trying and eventually I'll have to go to the padded white room or he'll get better either way would be good. Thanks for the advice it is great stuff here.

how old are your children? How do your children get a long with the puppy? I was just wondering because I have a young toddler myself and probably soon we'll start for one more and I was just wondering how your puppy and children get a long.

If I could only figure out how to post a picture. Lily is 3 years old and Megan is 2 years old exactly 13 months and 4 days apart. Purely by accident I assure you but would not send either one back. The kids are pretty good most of the time however, they on occasion like to one sit on his head and the other pull his tail. Of course we instantly stop that because that is just wrong. But they are kids and they don't understand the idea that it hurts puppy. Yukon was a real bad biter and mouther at first, still has his moments but we did the NO LEAVE IT command and he would stop let go and look at us as if to say did you say something? Right away we would GOOD BOY. Now he is pretty good, not perfect but much better. We also provide many chew toys including his favorite the chilly bone. It is a bone shaped thing soaked in water and frozen. Suppose to help with teething and so far so good. Actually I bought a second one just so I could rotate them around and he would always have a cold frozen one. He is just a monster but will hopefully grow up to be a nice dog. Or he'll be CUJO re-encarnated. Sorry the heat and humidity has made my brain stop working so I can no longer spell. Hope it is not to hard to read or follow. Sometimes I forget that I learned to write. Hey that's what a computer is for! It is very trying at times but I enjoy both the kids and the pup and would not give up either, or. Still there are times when I could throw all three of them out the window and say bon voyage. I guess it the same with anyone and anything. We all have our moments. Long winded aren't I? Sorry.

that is SO true about the padded white room. For a time all three of my dogs weren't housebroken and I thought for sure that I would end up losing my mind.

I can be funny at times HAHA. I think I'm going grey as well. There goes the red streaked brown hair. Oh well that's why they make hair dye.

Hey, at first my GSD (Also 4 months) had problems going outside but she finally got the idea and now I can oversleep (12 hours or more sometimes) and she won't go in my room at all . But near the end of this long period of time she does get mad and tries to "Punish" me by barking and jumping on me. One I do take her out, (right after breakfast) she lets loss outside and now gets it all done in about 2 min. Which is nice sense we have very bad bugs and pluse I'm not a morning person at all.

It just takes time, some pups need more then others. Hope he get the hang of it.
