How do I get my dog to pee inside?

asked 2020-01-17 11:20:26 -0500

My dog will just not use pads/towels/his area to go pee. He already knows how to go outside, but soon I will be in a new job and I will be gone for sometimes 12-14 hours a day, and I need him to be able to go inside in a designated area. At this point, I have him in a large room (hes a small 7 month old) and has toys and water and his bed and everything in this area. Half the floor has towels/pee pads/other things he has peed on to encourage him to pee there. And this keeps happening:

I am in a standoff and its been 14 hours since he peed. And the second I remove him from the area, he pisses on my carpet. I mean literally 8 secs, in front of me, so I scooped him up and put him back on the pads. TO which we are back in the standoff. And I cant let him out at all or he just pisses everywhere. The training sprays from the stores have not worked, pheromone things have not worked. He is very stubborn and clearly not going bc he knows I will eventually let him out. But I have patience. Help :(
