Please help! I just recently got a beautiful 16 week old female boxer. I absolutely adore her. However, the constant accidents inside my house are starting to drive me insane. I take her outside almost every hour during the day and she does nothing. As soon as I bring her back inside, she squats! What do I do???

Thanks Ari, this is definitely one of the options we are considering. My boyfriend and I both work full time, so I understand she's not going to be able to hold it in for nine hours, but the night time accidents are just a slap in the face.
Glad to help. I just adopted a dog myself. I found it overwhelming at first, but an intro training class at my local SPCA has helped immeasurably. Training was a big investment for me, but it's paid great dividends!
Great answer Fawntia. Crating is probably very important here. Also, it sounds like positive reinforcement when the puppy goes outside might be helpful.
Oh we are definitely going to crate train. I went home today on my lunch break and there were two piddles and a pile waiting for me on the kitchen floor.....ugh! I will definitely check out that book too! Thanks for the suggestions!
