Regarding the question about what I do when I catch Copper in the act of peeing in the house, I hold him by the collar and scold him, (I say sternly in a deep gruff foice NO!NO!)then take him outside to see if he has more peeing to do. I guess that it similar to the combination approach that Mkielbas recommended. I do a LOT or praise when he goes outdoors. I like the idea of a bell on the door. At one point this evening he went and sat at the kitchen door and looked at it and I immediately took him outside and he went. So maybe he is going to get the hand of it and I do just need to be patient. (However I took him out every half hour this evening between 8:30pm and 10:30pm and at 10:30 he peed in the kitchen again! UGH!) You are right Jassy, he will be a year old this week (on the fourth) so has had a lot of time to learn bad habits with his former owners who didnt have much time to work with him. So I guess that kind of puts things in perspective. Also, to answer the question from Mom of Two Beagles, when he pees in the kitchen he usually pees on the trash can. He was neutered last month. I clean everything up with Natures Miracle. I'm also going to try taking him out after every time he eats, drinks, sleeps or naps. I've been letting him drink all the water he wants and noticed that he drinks a lot in the evening. I dont want to stop him from drinking as much water as he wants on hot days, but then again, maybe that is contributing to the problem. 99% of his accidents are between 9:00pm - 10:30pm at night. On days when its not too hot, in the 70's, which is typical for where I live, should I stop letting him drink water after 8:00pm.?

I stop letting Daisy drink after 7:00pm because she was peeing on the bed. It has worked well for us. I don't get her all worked up or take her outside for extended periods after 7 though.

I wouldnt stop him drinking, dogs only drink when they need to. I would however take him for a walk before bed, as late as possible. Then no more to drink and straight to bed.

I have to do the same thing with Lucky. He drinks too much at once and about 30 minutes later he can't hold it and goes on the kitchen floor - I can always tell when that's the case because it's clear, has little smell, and it's in the kitchen! If he is trying to mark he does that in the living room and it's more spotty vs a puddle, plus it's more yellow!

I am trying to keep better track of him drinking big like that, but with two beagles, a toddler, and a husband my memory is not very good these days!!!

I have to make it to where he can't always get to the water!

Is it the kitchen that he normally pees? And his favorite place is to pee on the side of the trash can? What if you picked up the trash can? Put it in a closet or out of his site. The trash can may have scents inside it that draws him to pee on it. How about if you get a new trash can? Then all the scents that he is returning to will be gone. I know you are cleaning it, but seems like you can't ever get it all.

We used to limit their water drinking in the evenings.

Also if you are able to pin down 99 % of his accidents between 9 - 10:30 p.m. I would keep a eyeball glued to him during that period of time.
