Housetraining issues

Puppy refuses to wee or poo outside. Will run around the yard for a long period, goes for walks, etc. but won' t wee or poo outside. He has a spot behind our couches to poo and wees all around the house. How can we prevent this and teach him how to do it outside. He will spend a long time outside but as soon as he runs inside, he finds his spot and does his thing.

Dear Sunny

You can try 'puppy drops' that will attract him to a certain area. You have to be very strict and if you catch him in the act tell him a very firm 'no' or even have a rolled up newspapaer ready to make sure he knows that his behaviour is not on.

Try dumping the poo in the same spot and see if he picks up that this is where he should do his business

Do not simply let your puppy go into the garden in case he has forgotten what he needed to do - go out with him. Remember, reward him with a something special and make a big fuss of him when he does finally empty himself. Give your puppy his treat right after he does it and don' t leave it until you are back in your home otherwise he will not know the reason he is being treated.

If he does not empty himself then hang around for about five minutes and do not distract him. Try and let him find his own special location in which to empty himself and let him take a little time. When your pup does need to go then watch him as you do not want him to mess in the home. Every mistake teaches your puppy the wrong habit so every time he gets it right he is learning the right way to do things.
