Some adolescent or adult dogs (over six months of age) urinate or defecate inside the house
Any physically healthy dog can be housetrained. The key to potty training is patience and consistency. Always be around to supervise our puppy when she is inside. If I do not have the time to supervise, then I crate my puppy or put her in a long-term enclosure with puppy pads.
II. "No matter how long we stay outside, my dog waits until we are home to soil." This problem is common in urban dogs who were papertrained until they were fully immunized. Most folks papertrain by putting down papers in one spot, taking the puppy to the spot until the dog seems to "get it," then leaving the dog in peace to eliminate. The puppy learns that housebreaking means going to a particular place in private to soil. The papers are almost incidental. Avoid this problem by simulating outdoor walking habits indoors. Put down the papers on a schedule instead of leaving them out constantly, and place them in different places instead of always the same spot. Take your pup to the papers on leash, teaching her a toileting command such as "Do your business," and praise her for a job well done. This routine easily transfers to walks outdoors.

There are several different ways to housetrain a dog. In the rescue, we advocate the use of a crate. The animal is placed in a cage that is just large enough to be a bed. Dogs do not like to soil their beds because they would be forced to lay in the mess. It works, and while in these confines, most dogs will control their bladder and bowels for a longer time than we would expect. During housebreaking, whenever the dog is inside the home but cannot be watched, he is placed in the crate. The last thing you do before you put the dog in the crate is take him outside to his favorite spot. The first thing you do when you take the animal out of the crate is another trip outside. No food or water goes in the crate, just a blanket and maybe a chew toy to occupy his time. Overnight is definitely crate time. As your faith in the dog grows, leave him out for longer and longer periods of time.Because it’s never easy to housebreak a puppy, we enlisted the help of eight pet’s choice ambassadors to share their stories of canine potty training trials and tribulations.

It occurs because have unintentionally trained him to do this. Often this is due to our training methods.
