Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Help, my 6 month old boy-Kodabear is still having once a week accidents. The problem is outside he squats and inside he just walks and pees.
A little background:
We have crate trained him and he does very well. He last from 11:00 p.m. until 5:00-6:00 a.m.
I am in the process of leaving him in his crate, while I am gone up to two and half hours and he has not peed at all in his crate since he was 11 weeks old.
He does not ask to go out side we just take him out a half hour after any water intake, which is scheduled, and every hour and a half during waking hours.
What I do not understand is he squats outside but walks and just releases inside.
Is it normal for him to be having an accident once a week at this age?

Here is a link to an updated picture.

Normal no, common yes.

A lot of people deal with once a week issues for a long time and regression is normal.


If you are having trouble with it I would begin by watching him like a hawk, or umbilicaling. Either way make going outside fun and rewarding as much as possible.

I agree with Kelly on this one. Make sure you keep an extra careful eye on him. Sometimes their cues could be just looking over at the door - it took a while for us to learn Stark's cue, but once we got it, it's been pretty good since!

Best of luck to you!

I agree too. Our GSP is the most unemotional dog ever, so it took my ahwile before I picked up on his "I got to potty" cues.
