I've been having some trouble with Reece and housetraining. We're crate-training and take him outside quite often. Most of the time he's outside though he gets really anxious and is always trying to go back in. Which is odd since when we first went to see him, he was outside and romping all over the place. He'll poop when he's out there when he has to really go, but it's usually only when he -really- has to pee that he'll do that outside. Otherwise, we'll have him out there 20 minutes and he won't do anything, but as soon as he gets in the door he goes to the bathroom inside. We've been using Nature's Miracle and he never goes in the same spot, so I don't think it's that he's smelling it on the floor. Everything I've been reading about crate-training says that if they don't go when they're outside, bring them in, put them in the crate, and try again in 15 minutes, but even then he still won't go most of the time. We don't want to keep him crated all the time, but we also want to try and keep him on a track towards housebreaking. Anyone have any suggestions?
