Is there anything I can do? Two puppies, ten times the mess!

Our little guy Maestro is 15w. We are pet-sitting for my parents' little lady, Willow, who is Maestro's sister/littermate.

They play CONSTANTLY but I've sort of learned to ignore the growling and rough-housing ... but oh.my.goodness the peeing is OUT OF CONTROL!!! We give Maestro free access to water, but with Willow here it was sort of a "see me drink your water" then Maestro would join in, and the next thing you know, they've been through a bowl of water in 10 seconds. So now we just give water at frequent intervals throughout the day ... but honestly, I'm not sure it's much better!

So for example, I got home at 9:30 and took them both out and they peed. Came in, gave them a drink of water, set the timer for 20 minutes ... but both peed inside before the 20 minutes was up. Took them both out after I cleaned up, and both peed again. Came in, set the timer for another 20 minutes ... and when I got up to take them out, discovered not 1, not 2, but FOUR puddles on the floor.

This is very typical. Last night I gave them water around 6:30pm, took them out around 7:00, 7:30, and 8:00 ... but between 8 and 9 I encountered five puddles.

I swear - one of them pees and then the other does the same thing just to even the score!!!

What can I do, if anything? Maybe my only option is more extended crate time?

How can you be mad at those cute little hooligans, no matter what they're up to? How adorable are they!

Oh my goodness. How adorable are they?

My only suggestion would be to see if you could train them on a potty pad however I think that may be really hard with two of them. It could even backfire so I am not sure if it is even a valid suggestion but I thought I would throw it out there.

Enjoy

OMG I am sorry but that must be a sweet and fun mess! They are too cute!
Have you tried using an expen for them? Maybe with a couple of pee pads... They are having fun, for sure. Haha

Actually, I think this is the exact problem. I think we're going to be spending a lot of time outside the rest of this week.
