Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Sorry to hear that you are having frustrations with your puppy. I am a Veterinarian of 15 years experience and owner of four dogs. I will try and help you. Has your dog been examined and evaluated by a veterinarian for this problem yet? Does he only do this when he is home alone or when you are also at home?
Is it mostly urine or feces or both that he does in the house?
Certain medical conditions can cause a pet to start urinating and defecating in the house. I would recommend your puppy being see and examined by your veterinarian to make sure there isn't a medical problem as the source. More often than not, these issues can be behavioral based. You can try crate training if you are not there to monitor him. There are articles online that can help you learn to crate train him. It is difficult to for a dog to understand a scolding if it isn't directly after the offending event, so scolding him after the fact will likely not help. If it continues to be an ongoing problem, you can always consult with a behaviorist or trainer. You local vet will be able to help you find help in those departments.
