Okay Jasper is now just under 12 weeks old. He does not pee in his crate (which he can stay in for about 2-3 hours at a time) but he has gone out and pottied and been confined in the kitchen and peed 15 minutes after he's been out to potty. The thing is that unless I keep him crated most of the day off and on, he will have accidents even in the kitchen. I've caught him and scolded him and he knows where he's supposed to potty because as soon as he's out of his crate and I say let's go potty he goes to the back door. He does NOT need to get in the habit of peeing every 15 mins. He can and does hold it for 2 hours at a time. I don't understand this behavior because Harry was the easiest dog I've ever owned to housebreak. He had one accident in the house after we got him (14 weeks) and I caught him and scolded him and he never had another one. We never even had to crate Harry we just kept him confined to the kitchen until we were sure we could trust him in the rest of the house.
