Okay, I got Charlie when he was five months old in December. Admitedly, the first month he was with us was hectic since my kids were home from school and he never really got into a pattern. I crate him during the day and come home at mid day to let him and his sister (a Golden Retriever) have a potty break. She has the run of the house and has never had an accident and I am at work for nine hours. I 'm watching TV tonight and he walks into the middle of the family room and starts to pee. What's up with this? He has never given any sign that I can pick up on to indicate he needs to go out. Has anyone ever tried the bell on the door training to get your doodle to let us know when he needs to go?
