I have a 2.5 months old Golden retriever and I am house training him for past 1.5 weeks. Every 2 hrs once I take him to his designated area to pee and he does it. But if I miss, he doesn't even call me or give an idea that he is about to pee and pee whereever he is (even near the place where he sleeps).
Also I could see that he doesn't sniff before peeing and if I lift him while peeing and drop him in the designated area, he stops peeing for a long time.
So, why does my pup doesn't still knows that he has to pee only in the designated area?
On the other hand, pooping is a difficult task as he does that on different times every single day and I have no clue how to make him schedule it.
Does this both behaviors are due to he is a puppy?
One more thing, we wash the designated area most of the time to avoid stinking. Thus this is an issue?
