Default Cold n wet bathroom problems

Chipper is 10months now and has been toilet trained for awhile now, but now that it is cold and wet he keeps going inside. Wet i can understand, but now even if its cold he goes inside. I have tried standing outside with him but he just looks at me like i'm some crazy person.

Please any advice would be great.

First thing, go back to house training 101. Don't let him roam the house, instead, I'd tether him to you. If he starts to go inside, say "Ahh ahh ahh!" and quickly usher him outside. When he goes outside, throw a party! Have some yummy biscuits on hand. You could also train bathroom command(s). I say "Go Potty" to my dog. She has, maximum, 5 minutes to start the process of sniffing for the part of the process or we go inside. When she was younger, I tethered her to me when we got back in.

If you can't tether him to you (like you're cooking or taking a shower), I'd crate him.

Also, don't scold any messes... most certainly if you didn't catch him doing it.

Finally, make sure you clean the spots thoroughly with an enzymatic (sp?) cleaner. On another board, Petastic gets rave reviews. You can usea black light to find previous areas he's gone. It's really important to get ride of them all, otherwise he'll still smell it and think that is the place he should go to the bathroom.

Thanks so much for your reply.

I have caught him a couple of times tonight already, like you said i have gone back to the start. When he was younger i used the word 'bathroom" which worked. It's raining now and he went out, so lets hope it was a 72hour problem thats over now.
