I am so confused. Duncan is now about 12 weeks old and couldn't be farther from potty trained. I suppose that it is my fault for not being as didligent as I should be. Well I was having dinner with my Vet tech friend and she was telling me that he should be able to hold it up to 8 hour by now and should be potty trained by 4 months. I was shocked, according to everything that I've ever read it may take months. Well I still decided to follow her advice and crate him if we weren't in direct contact, he had been leashed up in the house, she said he won't want to lay in his own pee in his crate and that he'll learn to hold it. Wrong! He pees in there and then licks it up and cleans up his own crate. What in the heck is that all about? Like I said in a previous post he pees alot, he will pee 5 minutes after coming in from outside and always goes when were outside and its large amounts. Any ideas?
