I want to give up!!
I have an 8 month old Bernese mountain dog and poodle mix. He is about 65 pounds. When I first got him, he was peeing in the house like crazy but always went poo outside. He got over that, and we got to the point where I really thought he was potty trained! No more peeing in the house. But then a few months ago I got him neutered, and since then he has been peeing in the house about once or twice a month. (Always when I'm home, too). I always think its just a one-off since it doesn't happen again for another few weeks! But just in the past week he has peed three times, and he even pooped yesterday. I don't know what to do! He also is in a destructive phase; whenever I get home there are things chewed up on the floor.
Should I start crate training him again? He would be in the crate for 7 hours during the day..I know he can hold his pee for that long but I still feel bad doing that. I also have another dog and she is not crate trained, so she would be roaming the house while he is in his crate. Would a dog pen be better? Is he just going to the bathroom in the house now because he is bored? Or separation anxiety?
I have no idea what to do and I am starting to get so frustrated! If any one has any tips or any sort of advice PLEASE help me out!
