Well, I've been trying this for a couple of days now (I know, not long). Problem is, I can't get him to use the box. He'll go stand in it just fine and isn't afraid of it, but he won't use it to go to the bathroom. Currently, I am trying the crate method. I have a pen set up with his bed, food and water, and the litter box. I have been trying to leave him in there so he has no choice but to use the litter box. He cried all day and then when he finally did go, he went on the one tiny little spot of the floor that wasn't covered up. I have since put a box in that spot. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to be unnecessarily cruel to the poor dog. Problem is, he has no problem peeing in the house when no one's looking, but the second we actually want him to do it, he's on his best housebreaking behavior. [8|]
I know this is going to be a long process, especially with an adult dog, but does anyone have any tips? Am I going about this the right way?
