Not Having Any Success Potty Training Our Australian Shepherd
We don't seem to be having any success potty training our Aussie. We have read many articles and striven to follow all the advice. We are crate training him. We take him straight to the potty spot after letting him out of his crate. We don't give him any attention until he pees or poops. Then we praise and reward him. We constantly supervise him and take him out often.
Regardless, he still attempts regularly to pee in the house. He also pees in his crate. We have followed all the advice with setting up his crate and making sure it is only big enough for him to stand up and turn around in. He has been checked by a vet and confirmed he is healthy.
It is very discouraging. We have never had trouble house training our dogs before. Not sure what to do...
