Here's the story. My big brother bought a Boston Terrier from puppyworld and from the beginning the dog seemed really skittish and afraid of everything. He soon developed a pee problem,; like he'd pee if you raised your vice, clapped your hands, reach down and pet him too fast, get excited, sees another dog. I told my brother that he may have come from a puppy mill and was undersocialized as a young pup. so for months on end my brother has been trying to get him to pee outside. after a while he gave up because the dog would hold his pee for hours outside and once in the house he'd pee right there. Now i have him at my house and i'm not accepting pee and poo on my carpets and floor... how do i train a dog to go outside when he hiolds it.?
I did the same thing when I was being potty trained, my mom would sit with me in the bathroom for hoursss and as soon as she gave up, I would walk right out, pull my pants down and pee on the floor. xD
Honestly, I only see 2 ways out of this. The easy way, teach him to use a litter box. OR the harder way, be patient and stay outside with him until he cannot hold it anymore and goes potty. After a few times, he'll realize that going outside to potty is not that horrible and he will be easier to train. He cannot hold it forever, it's physically impossible. You can do it, you just have to have patience.
Ask another dog owner whos dog does pee outside if you can walk your dog with them ...if your dog sees another dog sniffing stuff an peein then he might do the same...we all need showing sometimes...if you can ,why not p outside your self to show the dog its ok? i would.
