Hi. Thanks for all the info on the diahrrea questions I had. Now I have another. My doodle is 17 weeks old. Still having accidents in the house. We take him out at least every 2 hours. He gives us no, I mean absolutely no indication of when he has to go, just stops what he's doing and goes. Very frustrating. Trying to maintain an even keel, but, he is literally peeing all over the house. It would be understandable it we were ignoring signals he's giving, but, I really don't think we are. I am with him all day, he's not left alone. I now believe he knows when he's doing wrong, but, still...
If anyone out there can give me any insight on this, please do. I've been reading all the entries of how everyone has their dog house trained by 9 or 12 weeks, if this is true, we obviously have a problem here. Please help!!!!

I agree completely with Jac. First, a trip to the vet is in order. If that's okay, then maybe the lightbulb just hasn't gone on yet. One of ours just didn't quite get the connection until we did the ex-pen training: We put an ex-pen outside in the grass where it could be clearly seen from the house. If the puppy hadn't gone potty in the last hour or so he went into the pen with instructions to "go outside!" and I dissappeared into the house (where I hid, so he wouldn't see me, but I watched the pen). The minute after he pee'd I would come running out of the house and praise him like a maniac. But nothing happened at all if he didn't pee. After a few minutes he would come back into the house, but be crated until we tried again a little later. It took about 3 days for him to fully understand what "go outside" meant and that he was going to be a little lonesome until he pee'd. It was just like that.... a lightbulb turned on. I would put him in the pen and he would automatically pee and then all the fun would start. It worked for us!
