Our pup will be six months in December. He has sporadic accidents around the house.

He is crated while we're at work, however my husband goes home to feed him lunch and walk him and he usually gets an afternoon potty break. He will still pee in his crate! We've taken his comfy bed out, left him with just a towel. 3 mornings this week were fine but he had a couple of afternoon accidents. He did have an accident this morning, so for the afternoon he'll have nothing in his crate.

What else can I do???

Sounds like your little guy is still young. Don't worry about it too much, as my Java was had that problem when he was that age. He's 14 months now and there's definitely light at the end of the tunnel. Some dogs just can't/won't hold it that long at first. I kept with his potty schedules and made sure he associated pottying outside as a positive behavior. My washing machine was running non-stop to clean all the urine drenched towels. I also became a stock holder of Nature's Miracle.

My suggestion is to regulate his water intake. If he is peeing after the lunch time break don't give him any water at that time. Same before bed.

Bodie was never crated during the day, only at night. At night we pulled his water after dinner time and he rarely had any accidents over night. And that was when he was around 3 months old. We still occasionally get an accident here and there, but it's usually traced back to someone giving him water later in the evening.

I'm with brien, our 5 month old pup had accidents like that and would pee or poop over night in his crate regularly until we regulated his food and water intake, for example we cut ALL drink and water at 6pm. and took him out every 3-4 hours. Now he usually lets us know when he needs to go out but he gets let out at midnight and then not again till 7 am we haven't had any accidents in WEEKS. Also when he pees inside just say NO and put him outside, by himself, so that he knows that peeing inside means alonetime outside with no one to play or toys. when he does go outside LOTS AND LOTS of happy voices and excited praise. good luck ::)
