10. However, if your dog do not pee or poop when you command him to, put him in the dog cage for about 30 minutes. Then repeat the command again.

      This seems like good advice but if you have a crate trained dog and you are using the crate to punish the dog that seems counter productive what would you recommend for a dog that pees on the floor as Have a friend who has three dogs one of which is crate trained it seems as though the older dog has regressed to puppy rules you would think the younger dogs would follow the older dog but it has been exactly the opposite.

      Not only does my 4yr old dog lift his leg when I leave he will tear apart the trash cans, rip apart paper or boxes which is very frustrating. I also have spayed female who does not do these things. In the summer time I leave them both outdoors and all is well then.
