My boyfriend and I got our puppy about 2 weeks ago. He just turned 8 weeks over the weekend but he's slowly getting worse about potty training. When we first got him he was basically a natural (I think the breeder was keeping them outside). He would go outside when we took him and only had a few accidents in the house. We never used a training pad because alot of people say it can confuse the pup. Well over the two week span he has been peeing in the house right after we take him out. We will take him outside and he will do his business and then will walk right back in the house and go again. And it has gotten increasingly worse over the few weeks. My boyfriend and I work until 2 and 5 in the evening so we can't be home to watch him during that time so his mother watches him. When he is not in his crate he is out around the house with full freedom. I'm not sure how much he is being watched while we are gone but he also does the same thing with my bf's mother (going outside and then peeing in the house). I think he is having too much freedom to roam because I know puppies shouldn't have full access to the house. I just want to know how I can prevent this from getting worse and if I should buy one of those enclosed gate things or if it would even help. He knows where to go I just think he likes peeing in the house. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!!!
