Sally G. : This is very normal because when he is in his crate there is little movement the more he is out the more the body is used, the more he drinks, the more he forgets that he has to pee due to playing so the more accidents you'll see.
Sally G. : I would when home take him out every two hours on lead, give a potty command each time and back it up with praise, then a special treat for eliminating outside something like a hot dog sliver.,
Sally G. : When you get back inside and know there is the possibility of accidents tether him to you so you can whisk him out to finish going should he start inside the home
Sally G. : Never punish for accidents as this will lead to more accidents because what happens is the dog becomes afraid to go in front of the owner as he will start associating your anger with his eliminating and this can then carry over to outside so, without a fuss clean it up and always praise and reward the good behavior
