Hello I have a 7 month old border collie male. We have had him since 7.5 weeks due to his mum starting to bite at him and I am absolutely at my wit's end with house training! I have read multiple times he should be able to go 7 hours without needing to pee again but he regularly goes every 4 hours in my house without even an attempt at going near the door he goes outside in. He regularly makes no noise for when he needs to pee and just goes when he feels like! We did have it kind of sorted until he got neutered 3 1/2 weeks ago and even went on holiday with no issues. He knows simple commands and responds well to them but has lost his "heel" tactic recently (I presume from lack of practice because we normally just test full recall on a walk, sit/down/leave/off are fine). He does very occasionally whine when he needs a wee or a poo and when he goes outside he gets rewarded with lots of fuss but he just doesn't seem to get it a good 90% of the time. He will either go from midnight-6 absolutely fine or its a 10/2/6 issue. He is not crated as even with multiple encouragement he would still destroy his crate as a 8-12 week old pup and constantly whine in it for hours on end. We have even tried sleeping in the same room as him to no avail, he will just continue to go in the same place. My concerns are this - why is he going only every 4 hours when he should be going 6-7? -what can I do to get him going completely overnight without starting from square one and crate training him?
