Exclamation Why does my 4 month old beagle pee in the house after being outside?

Hi there,

I have a 4 month old beagle puppy called Hugo with a few behaviour issues. Firstly i have been housetraining him for sometime now and have made some progress but hes still having some issues.

I can take him for a walk where he will do his buisness but he will also come straight back in the house and pee on the floor, i have also tried the crating method but he has on many occassions peed in the crate even though hes been taken on walks throughout the day.

There has also been 2 occasions where he has been lying next to me on the sofa only for me to find out once hes jumped down that hes peed where he has been lying.

I dont know where im going wrong with the training but i need some help/advice....Thanks

well he is only 4 months old, a lot of puppies don't really get it until they are 5-6 months old or older depending.

Make sure you have a strict schedule for him. he will need to Pee, before and after eating, right after playing, and right after napping.
if he can't be trusted in the house, make sure to keep him on a leash, and with you at all times.

other than this, it seems you are on the right track. (and continue to crate train.. as he gets bigger he will probably grow out of it. and def should be crated at night. )

don't worry such is the life with raising a puppy.

Hi Bringing up a puppy isn't easy I have been there my self!! You need a schedule/routine as a puppy's bladder can't hold out for long periods of time! (As for crateing this is a personal thing ( you can get by with out it though ) My dog Nipper has never been crated and never will be she is now 3 years old!. When you are out on a walk introduce a command word for peeing. I say to Nipper go do Pee then do poops and I have never changed the words ( that's being consistant!) Never tell Hugo off when he gets it wrong as he is more likely to find hidden spot where he will go when you aren't looking when he gets it right give plenty of
praise ( always give plenty of praise!) and a treat! it won't happen happen over night either so stick with it. Let us know how you get on! Good Luck! ATB

Thank you for your advice...Hugo was brill when i used the puppy pads when he was very young would very rarely make mistakes...but he finds it hard making transition from inside to outside he associates walkies with playtime(esp when our cat likes to join us for walkies too)...i do use keywords which he does recognise for example he has learnt the 'sit', 'lie down' and 'paw' command but maybe he needs some time adjusting to peeing 'outside'.

Crating at night may be a problem for Hugo has he really doesnt like being in there at all. He will whine bark constantly even though hes in the same room with us, i dont really want to keep him in there i much prefer him roaming around the house but in order to train him ive been told its the most effective way until he has learnt.

Thanks alot for help!!

Ahh, the puppy pad problem rears it's head again....I swear those things should be taken off the market.

Your pup has learned that it's okay to pee inside...now he has to go back and learn that it's not okay to pee inside....poor little guy is confused!!

A couple of tips I've collected from the other members here

- pick up all the loose throw mats for the time being (they resemble puppy pads to a puppy)

-confine him to floors with no carpets if you can.

- Get yourself the best enzymatic dog pee floor cleaner that you can find and thoroughly wash every spot he's peed. If he can smell pee, he'll try to mark the spot again.

-And be consistent with his schedule.

I agree >.< Never really understood the point in using them. But my puppy was the same way, she peed on beds, and the sofa. never just on the floor.
it was very annoying for a while, since I have to go to a laundry mat...>.<

lots of good info offered here, Good luck,
btw Hugo is such a cute name

Thank you all very much for the advice,its much appreciated!!

@Artdog thanks he really suits his name & he has also peed on my bed, sofa, floor practically everywhere...i thought it was only him having this problem because my parents have dogs and they never had that sort of problem so its nice to know that not hes not the only dog that goes through this phase!
