My Coton is almost 2, and despite all of the "best" training methods, still cannot be trusted not to pee in the house.
He was really difficult to housetrain, will pee and/or poop in any other house we visit (except my Dad's, who had a dog) and recently discovered how to go downstairs, so will now go down and pee or poop in the basement instead of coming to tell us he needs to go.
We've had him checked by a vet, and done everything -- clicker training, a bell on the door, taking him on a schedule, keeping him tethered to us when out in the house (he peed 2' away from me in March). He is crate trained, and will whimper or bark if he needs to go when in his crate; otherwise he goes and stands at the door, and if nobody happens to see him, will just go somewhere else.
I'm afraid my husband is on his last good nerve with this dog, and we will have to give him away. My daughter will be heartbroken.
I need help!
