Unhappy Two rescue dogs and hopeless problems?

Hi
We got two dogs from the pound that came in there together,a Beagle male and a female mixed breed that only uses three legs to walk..The other leg was apparently shattered and a broken rib that healed wrong also......

My wife insisted we get both since they've been together a long time...Both about 10 years old.......The problem is they go poop any place they feel like and pee also..Beagle won't poop out side but poop in a crate when we leave..

I was thinking of giving them away or back to the pound but my wife threatened divorce if i do...I have to crate lucky because he's a chewer and will chew anything...

The whole thing seems hopeless

any ideas at all appreciated...

Tom

10yrs, and not house broken. Sounds like they have been outside dogs perhaps? or maybe its the reason they were there? either way, they now need to be house trained.


Do you have a dog door / able to install one? As this speeds the training up immensely. And every house i have had, has one. As i install that asap.

Do you have crates? are you willing/able to get them?

Do you have a dog secure garden? and easy access toilet area, ie no steps, close to back door?

How much exercise are they getting? How are they getting it?

What training have they already had? what commands do they know?



There are sticky threads on house training. take dog for a pee. wait till pee's, reward type lengthy descriptions i wont go into here.

Not reading a lot of 'team work' vibe oozing from the mrs. Any chance you could read up together, and tag team on this project for a couple of weeks. 2 weeks hard work, or 5 yrs of cleaning up choice?

We need to get the back yard fence repaired soon....We have a crate for the male and he poops in it..Hates going in there.....Maybe a total of 30 minutes exercise a day...mostly walking around the yard..

they are getting better in the peeing department but the male only poops inside.............


He is cute though..wags is tail constantly.......
I've heard you can't train old dogs but I'm willing to try
they know very few commands..Come mostly and that's about it.we will try anything..
