Puppy does fine in the crate but pees in the house?

asked 2019-10-28 15:40:08 -0500

I have a 13 week old puppy. He is doing great with crate training and does not have accidents unless I give him too much room in the crate. He can also sleep through the night without needing to go out. When I am home, we go out very frequently (sometimes every hour or sooner) and I give him lavish praise and treats for going outside. However, he still pees in the house. Sometimes these accidents happen even within 10 minutes of coming in from a successful potty break. He just went to the vet and has a clean bill of health. He is obviously capable of holding it longer, but is choosing not to. Is this an emotional or behavioral issue? There does not seem to be a pattern of where he is going, so I don't believe the issue is that he smells the pee from the last place he marked. Any advice on how to manage this would be appreciated!
