I bought a kingcharles puppy from a breeder who told me the puppy was house trained. However has shown no sign of this since coming home.
We live in a town house and he is alone from approx 3hrs somedays.
He will wee on the paper and training pad sometimes but not all the time. He poops wherever he feels like. He has even stated hiding to do it .. We take him outside as often as possible but he never wants to stay out there when its slightly cold. He does go outside most times but I really need to teach him to go on the paper and pads.. I also don't want to leave the door open all the time because it gets too cold in the house and its a rental so I cant install a doggy door.. We lock him in the laundry during the night and when were out, with the door open ( use a board to stop him from escaping ), with some food and water, a bed and the paper. He never cries, only in the morning he will let off a bit of a bark when we wants to get up....
What can I do?
