Dogs Keep Peeing in House.

My dogs are 2 and 4 (both are unfixed males) and are constantly being put outside. In the morning before we go to work, when we come home for lunch, when we get home from work and numerous times in between that and the time we put them out before we go to bed. They're out for a half hour to an hour at a time.

Yet the still pee in the house. On the kitchen floor, on the carpet, the furniture, the pillows. Anything. It's getting tiring and everything smells like pee now.

We can have them out for an hour, bring them in, then leave for a mere minute and one will have pooped or peed on the floor some where. It's getting quite old.

The youngest one will chew and destroy anything and everything he can get his mouth on when we leave. He's 2 and should be out of the chewing phase.

My boyfriend and I are getting fed up as the days go on with our dogs.

I would start actively rewarding them for going potty outside. It sounds like it's not so much a matter of the amount of outside time they have, dogs still have to be taught that outside is where they need to pee.
So I suggest going outside with them and rewarding them for eliminating outside. When they're inside, never leave them alone. Crate them when you leave. When you're home, stay with them and watch them for any sign that they need to pee or poop, and immediately take them outside and reward them when they go. Treat them like potty training puppies.

The key mistake, is “putting them out” rather than taking them out. They consider the yard their play space and are no doubt keeping it tidy. As the previous post suggests, reward them heavily for toileting outside. This means you MUST go out with them. The moment they pee or poop, make a big deal over it! Yippee! Pets, high value food.
The other part is you must manage the indoors by crating or penning them in. And Xpen, gates, large crate will prevent them from trashing the house. If you don’t manage the indoors it’s going to forever to get them to switch to outdoors.
