House training

Morning, we have a 12 week old bullmastiff puppy and are struggling to house train him. We have tried all the tricks in the book including spraying vinegar where he last went to the toilet. He sleeps in our braai room and the sliding door to the garden is left open all night but he still insists on doing his business inside the house. Please can you offer some advice on how we can rectify this problem. Should he not by this age be house trained or does it take longer?

It can take longer. Take him out for a walk last thing at night and reward him for doing his business. Then take him out again very early in the morning. Please take him to a convenient spot or else he may learn to do his ablutions just where he mustn't.
