My little pup spends most of his time outside with my other dogs, but I do like to bring him inside when I come home from work for a little bit. The problem is that the first thing he does when he comes in is run to the kitchen or down the hallway and pee's. I'm not sure why he does this. I haven't really done any traing because I figured if he spends most of his time outside I wouldn't have to worry about potty training him and him going inside the house. What is the best way to stop him from doing this?

Well I am not a dog trainer but! I do know keeping a dog on a leash in the house will only
make things worst. I have had all kinds of dogs and some are harder to train the others.
I would have to say keep him from entering the hall until he stops wetting. Maybe try disinfecting that hall it might be the smell that keeps bring him there.. How old is the little guy?

Not sure why you think this would make things worse :? It's actually a very effective way to train a dog...not only for housebreaking, but also to make sure they aren't chewing your house to bits or getting into things they shouldn't. The basic concept is that if you can't watch your dog the whole time, then he/she should either be crated or leashed to you (sometimes referred to as the umbilical method).

As for peeing immediately when he comes in the house, it sounds almost like an excitement thing. I would make sure he's calmed down (maybe he's excited to see you and hasn't gotten over that excitement when you let him in) and walk him in calmly and slowly on a leash. Once he has settled down, you could take him off the leash. After a short while in the house, let him out to go potty and then let him back in. Just because he's outside most of the time doesn't mean he knows to ONLY go outside...quite the opposite actually. he's used to being where it doesn't matter where he goes...the yard is his bathroom, so when he comes in, it's not like he realizes it's different.

Consistency is key in whatever you decide to do. He should catch on fairly quick, as these bully breeds are smart! Good luck!

Hello Mom What I wanted to say is keeping him on a leash will only make him not understand
ounce you let him loose he wil keep doing the things you don't want him to do....
The dogs needs to be trusted not confined and the only way to do this is letting him or her run freely.
It's ok if you prefer to crate a dog while your not home but again you would not keep him crated all day...

I know that he gets excitied but this is not an "excitied pee" it is a big puddle!!! And I sanitize the hall or where ever he goes everyime, so it's not the smell. I just need to treat it like he is an inside dog and take him out every 30 min or so then he will get use to it and know that he doent go inside. Thanks for all the advice I will definetly use it!
