Yeah, I have a puppy who is kind of sorta, as in not at all, house broken. He's fine then he's not. He tells me, then he doesn't.
He poops behind my chair, then pees in front of the couch.
I didn't want to have to go full crate training on him because I'm home all day, but it doesn't seem like I have much of a choice. I don't get a lot of help from either the man or the boy when they are around. They basically ignore him, and if I'm doing something, say cooking dinner, then I have no choice. He's going to have to go in the crate.
No, I'm not blaming him. It's all my fault. It always is around here, anyway.
