I have a boxer mix (no idea what the mix is yet) that I picked out at the SCPA and I am having trouble getting the housetraining thing down. I leave the house at 6am and return home usually around 4-5pm. She uses the restroom before I go to work and then the dog sitter comes around 10am and then at 2pm. From 6am till when the house sitter arrives, she is in the kitchen. The sitter said there is sometimes pee on the floor but not on a daily basis. From about 1030 till 200pm she is in the crate and there is rarely ever anything left behind in there. She gives no indication of when she needs to use the restroom when we are home. When I turn my head for a second there it is...a little lake or a new mountain on my floor. I walk her every 1 1/2 to 2 hours after I get home. I am trying the bell technique and she is not getting that yet either. She loves her crate and goes inside it to sleep all on her own (very few accidents inside there if she is in there for two hours or so). She is usually in my field of vision when she is not in the crate because it only takes a few seconds to water the floor or leave a little treat. Can anyone assist me or give me a couple of ideas in getting her up to speed with using the restroom outside?
