Extending times between Walks

How do you extend times between walks? The goal is to our "American Eskimo" to go a working day between walks.

He can hold it all night but has problems during the day.

Please advise how to get around this?

It could be a behaviour thing.

Make sure your dog has lots to do when no one is home.
Make sure he has lots of toys, keep the radio on etc. If at all possible try to get a neighbor to give a walk during the day.

At the very least, lavish tremendous praise on him the moment he pees during his regular walks.

He may then associate urination with praise which will hopefully make him hold it in so he can please you.

Good luck,
