Dog wonÂ´t pee or poop outside Hi, I know thereÂ´s is a lot of topics like that everywhere on the internet and trust me, IÂ´ve googled a lot over the past few days but I cannot seem to solve this problem. We bought a 2 month old Westie. I didnÂ´t get a crate because I thought "Im not buying a dog to have him in a cage most of the day" but now...I get why itÂ´s important. Anyway, I read online that if the dog pees (or poops) in the house, I should tell him "No" and carry him outside. I tried to do that but when I picked him up, he would pee or poop while being carried and just get it all over the floor and I never got him to finish outside. What happened was, he got scared of doing his business in front of me. I never shouted, and I obviously never hit him, I wasnÂ´t in any way agressive, but still, he is now scared to go in front of me. The second problem is that, I guess, he thinks that inside is the only place to pee. Im constantly cleaning the spots where he goes but itÂ´s pretty much random. Today fed him, he drank a whole bunch of water and I went outside with him immediately. I stood there for about an hour and a half and nothing. So I went inside, made sure he didnÂ´t soil in the house, gave him more water and went again, still nothing. As soon as I let him lose home, he ran around a corner and went. If he peed outside at least once, I would praise him and give him a treat but heÂ´s not giving me a chance. And I think if I bought a crate now, since he already ran around the house, he would just bark and squeal inside.
