    Hello, how old is your cute teddy bear? Awwww, feel like smooching that adorable face! Did you try crate training -if he is over 12 weeks-? What products are you using to clean up messes? Look for enzyme based cleaners, they eat up smells, otherwise he'll think previous soiled spots are areas he can continue to use as his bathroom.

      The cute and dirty bear is twelve right now. He is outside every two hours, but it isn't enough. There where he stands he pees! I must visit his doctor, maybe there is something wrong with his bladder. I use special cleaner for dogs...OK,enzyme based

      The book "Way to go" by Patrical McConnell and Karen London is great. If you google "Alexadry secret strategies for potty training your dog" you will get several tips that have helped my clients. I write extensively on this topic.

    The basic training method, which works best with puppies, but can be used with older dogs, is to watch for the signs that something is about to happen, sniffing areas, circling, etc and taking them outside immediately. This also has to be done after every meal. It is time consuming but we have three Beagles, two were adults rescued from the local shelter and one was a puppy we purchased. They quickly learned to go to the door. Yes, there will be the occasional accident, especially if you do not pay attention to the signals, or if the dog is scared or they are sick because of eating something they should not have. Puppies can be trained in four to six weeks. Older dogs can take longer, depending on the disposition of the dog and the owner's willingness to wait it out before bringing the dog inside.

      In his case, nothing looks like he would want to pee, he simply pees! Right there where he stands! He is doing it without looking around, sniffling or circling. When he would do it, it would be too easy for me to recognize his needs! :-)

    I have two mini beagles which are part miniature pinscher and part beagle. they are very small dogs. The 7 month Bella was house broken when we got her and we just recently got her sister ginger 9 weeks olds same mom. With the weather getting colder she's too little start trying to housebreak so we are using puppy pads. You just lay them down in a certain area that you want them mainly to go in watch for signs of needing to go to the bathroom and if they dont go on there automatically put them on there. To house break out doors same idea if you dont have a fenced in yard you may need a leash. Be constant with them have them on a good schedule. Take them out in the morning, again in the afteroon, evening time like right after they eat n drink and right before going to bed.  Whether you train them to go on puppy pads or outside bottom line is it takes practice, routine and being constant with it.

      Thanks for your answer.
      I think that I spend more hours outside than inside and still he pees where he stands... I've tried with the pad, he ate it.... It didn't work, he is maybe too huge for it.

    Every time after eating, drinking, playing and upon waking take your dog outside and tell them to 'go potty'.  You will feel like a yoyo sometimes, but it is repetition that is needed not only to teach them where the door is but that when you say 'let's potty' or 'outside' they associate that with going to the bathroom outdoors.    Everytime they do their business outside praise them while they are in the act this way they are associating the praise of 'good boy' with the fact they are doing something they are supposed to do.   If you end up finding a mess in the house after the fact, it's too late to discipline your dog as they won't know what they are being punished for.  However, if you catch them in the act say 'NO', pick them up and tell them 'outside'.   They will get the hint eventually.   When you see your dog start going to the door by himself let him outside.  I used to put Christmas jinglebells on my doornob that hung down and my dogs would ring the bell when they needed to go outside.

    If your dog is 12 years old and has had bladder control before, then this is most likely medical.  A bladder infection causes this problem, and as that can turn into a kidney infection and kidney failure, It could also be bladder control loss due to old age.  There is a medicine that some dogs do respond to for old age loss of control.

    As this may not be behavioral, the first thing you need to do is eliminate medical issues with a visit to the vet.  If the vet finds nothing wrong, then you can begin to work on behavioral problems. smile

      Whoo!!  Then all the usual potty training applies, and you don't need a vet visit except for shots. smile  I thought maybe the pic was an old pic of your dog.
