I have a 7 month old puppy who is semi house trained. At night, I have him sleep in his crate and in the morning I let him outside to do his business. Occasionally he will have accidents while Im at home, I do blame myself for that as sometimes I miss the signals he gives me however he is generally really good (while I'm at home). I recently have had to keep him indoors due to my pup escaping some how through the backyard. I want to be able to leave him unsupervised but it is for 12 hours of the day so I know he will have to go to the toilet at some point.
I also have another dog, she's an angel (I recieved her potty trained), I however am struggling badly to potty train my little guy. He does for some reason, do his business in one area in the house (unfortunately he chooses the dining room instead of the laundry).
I'm looking for advice, tips, anything that can help me in my situation.
I've had a look at other dog forums online and have noticed some dog owners crate their dogs while at work. Is this safe and a fair act on my pup? for 12 hours?
Please if you could give me advice, that would be fantastic!
