My beagle shadow is now 8 months old, we brought him home at 8 weeks on January 1st so we have had him roughly 6 months. He knows that he is supposed to use the bathroom outside, because when he has a accident in the house he feels bad, we can actually tell when he does it without knowing he did it by the way he acts. He stays in a crate while we are away at work during the day he is alone for roughly 8 hours. He holds his needs all day, and when I come home I take him outside and he does his business like he should with no problems. When I bring him back inside we set a timer for 45 minutes, and we take him outside every 45 minutes all night long. Sometimes he will go outside and do nothing, then he will come back inside sneak away and pee or poop somewhere in the house. right after I just took him out, it happens at least once a day. Shouldn't he be catching on by now? Because he knows he is doing wrong, but he just doesn't seem to want to stop having these accidents. I mean he holds it all day while we are gone and when we get home it seems he cannot hold it longer than a hour. Is this normal? What can I do to help him learn quicker? Thank you!
