I know there are countless topics on housetraining dogs on this forum but I'm just at my wits end!

Ralph my pugalier, is about a year old now and he just will not stop peeing inside. If I say "wanna go wee wee's?" He understands that means to go outside and he will if he needs to go but sometimes he doesn't or he goes and wees or poos somewhere in the house without us knowing so we are standing outside with him waiting for something to happen that already has inside (but we don't know it yet).

Another thing is that he won't go to the toilet if we just leave him outside on his own and he won't go to the toilet if he is wearing a collar/leash (which is weird) when outside or on walks but he will inside -_-

He is healthy and just recently had a checkup and all is fine. He also recently got desexed which hasn't changed anything unfortunately. It is wet and cold here at the moment so I understand he doesn't want to get cold or wet but hos behaviour has always been like this.

I'm just getting so frustrated with him and I know that he knows he has done the wrong thing because when he has pee'd or pooed inside he walks around all guilty and if we look at him when he's feeling that way he rolls onto his back as to say "I'm sorry I didn't mean it" so we know we need to look for where he's done something

I just don't know what to do anymore :(

There are. Try doing a search for crate training. Your dog should be either outside, in his crate inside, or on a leash inside with you looking at him. That way, he has no opportunity to pee inside because as soon as you see him try you take him outside. It is quite a bit of paying attention at first, but dogs catch on very fast.

Go outside with him. While your at it, take a couple little slices of hot dog and praise him and give hime those treats when he goes outside.

Dogs do not have the abstract concept of 'wrong'. Usually they get that look because they realize they are about to be yelled at or hit, but they do not connect that with the 'accident' it just makes them fear their owner.
