potty training trip
Thoroughly agree punishment for a pup is counter productive, clapping of hands, anger, shouting, raising you voice is only going to scare him & Bassets although large dogs are also sensitive soles, never scold. House training is about us, it's not his fault. Don't show any emotion, no fuss just clear up well ensuring that their is no residue smell, biological washing powder is great of getting rid of any enzymes that will draw him back to the same spot. You need to go back to the beginning and take him out on a lead, to the same spot he's used before, don't let him play or run around till he's been, then praise him, give him a treat I've always used a command when first training as they start to go like 'be busy' so that eventually you should be able to take him out & he'll perform when you give the command. I wouldn't use the words 'Good boy' as tend to use this for general praise & you don't want him peeing every time you say it! Don't take you eyes off him & when his is loose around the house perhaps till he gets the idea it's good to contain him to one room at a time, our pup was house trained, had surgery & had to be contained in the kitchen for weeks/months. When he had freedom again would never soil in the kitchen, but run in from the garden & **** hs leg around the rest of the house!

He is still a puppy ,start back at square one,do not let him see you clean up anything he does ,next time he goes in the house slop it up with paper towels put them in a plastic bag then the next time he goes out place the paper towels where you want him to go.
