I have a major problem. I have a 10 month old Pom who we have been attempting to house break since he was 8 weeks old. He was slowly getting better until he was fixed about 3 months back. At this point he cannot hold his pee for longer than 3 hours. We originally did not crate train him, however, now he has been placed in a crate, since we gave up on all other methods. He continually pees in his create. And this evening he peed on my wife and in the hall way as soon as I let him out of the crate (he was only in there about 2.5 hours.) On several occassions I have taken him out for an hour and finally gave up bringing him in, he immediately pooed and peed in the house. My fear is that there is something wrong with him (either mentally or physically) I need advice and advice that includes "just keep on trying" isn't what I am looking for. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow to do a battery of tests as he also has a warm, dry nose as well. Any one please help!
