House-breaking
by: Donna

How long have you had him?

Do you have a routine of walking with him? Morning, noon, after work and before bed? Routines are important.

When he is in the house, make sure to watch him all the time. Don't allow him out of your sight.

If it looks like he is going to do his business (have the leash on hand. Dogs don't like being grabbed by the collar.) Say 'ah ah' and take him outside for a walk. Wait until he's done his business and say 'good boy'.

At night, keep him in the crate. Take him outside first thing when you get up.

When you leave him in the crate when you are not home, make sure to take him outside right away when you get home.

Be consistent with this training.

It sounds like he simply never had training. It's so hard when you don't know the backgrounds of these dogs.

Be patient, and consistent and praise him for good behaviour. Redirect for unwanted behaviour.

Best of luck.

Walking
by: Nashville

Our GP will not poop in our fenced yard. He gets walked in the morning and late afternoon and usually goes poop both times. He is a creature of habit so I really try hard to to deviate from this schedule. After a year, he's got it that he better go poopy on these two times. He's only made a mess once in the house but it was when we first got him as a foster.

Good luck. He gets fed aroud 7 am and gets walked about 8 or 8:30. He gets dinner around 5 and he might get a walk at 4pm or 6pm. Being consistent with this breed really helps.
