We have a 10 week old Australian Shepherd pup. He sleeps in the crate for about 6-7 hours a night without peeing and he can do a three hour car ride without needing to stop but in the house he is peeing every 10 minutes. Well...not every ten minutes. We will take him out...he pees we praise. Then five minutes later...or 10 minutes or maybe 12...whatever...he is peeing on the floor. If we catch him its "no puppy" and straight outside...if we don't catch him its just outside and clean up. He will then pee again outside. But there is every chance he will be peeing again in the house within the next half hour. This pup can seriously pee more than any puppy I have ever seen. But since he doesn't pee in his crate or in the car so I can't see it being a medical issue. I think he just loses focus and never finishes. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? I don't expect him to know that he has to go outside not inside yet but how on earth am I supposed to keep up with a puppy who can pee every 10 minutes...I can't take him out every 8 minutes!
