My boyfriend and I just adopted a 1.5yr old hound mix. He's very affectionate and very well trained for a shelter dog. They got him as a stray but they believe he was owned originally because he knows a lot of tricks.
The one issue we've had is house training. I know most shelter dogs won't be house trained at all. And everyone has a similar issue.
Today, I took Duke outside and he did his business. Then, not even 20 minutes later, he urinated on the floor.
I read up online that using treats after he pees outside is a good way to enforce good behavior and develop a habit.
Any suggestions?
