My five month old Boxer is a great dog but still giving us issues with house training. She is outside a good part of the day, and we let her out frequently, too, but this morning, at 5am (!) she proceeded to both poop and pee inside after she went outside. I'm a bit at my wits end and wonder why i am inept at this--perhaps I need to hire someone to come in and train her? Is this job outsourcable?
Our vet said to confine her to a room. We do this via a baby gate when no one is home and she does NOT go there. But when we are home, we let her mingle with the family because she is so social, and well, this happens.
We had a crate when we were in the city, but she would have accidents outside, as well. We no longer use a crate because this single room thing sort of worked. Until I am elbow deep in dog poop at 5 am. Please help!
