doh!

x-pen...ex pen...
i knew what you guys were talking about but had no idea what x pen stood for.
'exercise pen'!!

how did i discover this?

i just bought one today after work.

mugsy is too darn stubborn and will not stop peeing in the house. he can hold it if he chooses and i know this cause he does it occasionally, i think just to raise my hopes only to dash them again.
so every morning and every day after work i search the house looking for wet spots.
maybe the x pen will help and if not i'll know where to look.

so i set it up and threw in some of his favourite things, a smelly sock (mine), a handful of cheerios and some chew toys, along with one of his beds.
so far he has yet to go in.

Oh Joe - I do feel your pain. Just be careful that your smart guy doesn't figure out how to scale the Xpen. LOL

Joe- I like that idea of my dogs making great choices but you need to help him make that choice! I would start by placing all food and water into the xpen. I would also put his favorite treats in there too

I agree with Amanda. Lure him in with treats. I think the basic crate training tutorials will help in this case too.

You'll need to put him in there and close the door (and LATCH it!) for quite a while before he will choose to go in there. I have puppies that are 10 weeks old and only half of them choose to go in there but it is because I have made a game out of coming in the house and running into the pen for treats (with me jumping over the top so they can come in and greet me for their treats).

It will take a while, but he'll go in there by choice eventually. You need to teach him by routine first.
