Thanks for all your feedback. I called the vet to make an apt to get Copper checked for UTI. I spoke with the vet on the phone and he said that since Copper not just peed but pooped in the house that it's not UTI. He gave me some ideas to help. For example I didnt realize that by giving Copper a treat could stimulate a bowel movement. HE said that I shouldnt give any more treats until Copper is housetrained. TO answer the questoin from JAva the Beagle, I am usually in the same room with him when he pees, but not always. Yesterday morning whe I got him out of his crate I realized he had peed in there at some point during the night. Tonight I took him out at 9:30pm, watched him pee, PRAised him big time, then petted him while he lay on my lap while I watched a movie. He got up at 10:00 and walked to the kitchen and peed on the floor. My husband is having a coniption - and I am afraid he wont put up with this forever - But I soo appreciate hearing all of your experience in dealing with this - it is really encouraging and helps me to stick with this. I am trying all the advice that you all have given me - especially about going back to housebreaking him as if he's a new puppy. ANy more ideas or just similary stories are much appreciated!
