Stay with him outside, at least until he's house trained.

Kelly, may I ask how you ended up training Buster, since the bell didn’t work.
We live in a gated townhouse complex and dogs have to go outside the gates to go potty. Our Daisy used to go on pads because I was unable to take her out. Now she won’t go on the pads and I want her to tell us when she has to go outside. We usually just take her out 4 times a day but every once in awhile if we have company she’ll go on a rug in the kitchen.

Housetraining Adult Dogs - Dogtime

of housebreaking and crate training quite easily since it is part of their natural programming It's a relief to know that I am not alone in this. My 4 month old retriever hasn't figured out a schedule yet (although bed time and morning after food she is almost always consistent). Rest of the day depends on my luck. Some times before lunch, some times after, no definite plan. She appears lazy to do it when asked.....She goes outside but probably only partially( to get her treat) but then later sneaks into the living area and completes her unfinished business. Rug or hardwood, no preference. It boggles my mind that despite my spending most of the day trying to train her, how come she manages to somehow use the house to go potty. I dream of a dog that can be left in the house without any worry. I have never ever punished or yelled at her for her accidents. She is my baby. She gets a treat and praise every time she goes outside on my watch, I don't know why she would go in the house which gets her nothing. Fewer pee accidents but more potty ones. I was told dogs get confused in big houses as there are a lot of hiding spots. I am planning to start on bells. I have to see how it works. Wish me luck and any advice would be useful. Thank you.

Housebreaking a Dog: How to Potty Train a Puppy

By the way, I already read the “How Can I Get My Dog To Stop Peeing In Her Crate?” page. That’s how I got to this one. You redirected someone to the crate training guide and potty training guide. I know how to crate and potty train, I need to know how I should handle her time outside of the crate, especially during sleep. Should I put her in the crate overnight, and just wake up in the middle of the night, like I was initially planning? Or should I just forget the crate all together for the first few weeks, while I take a step back to teach her not to pee in the house? If the latter of the two, how should I arrange her sleeping situation? What would be best for her to feel safe and comfortable in my home?
