My 4 month old puppy was potty trained until recently.It is hard to figure out the cause as 2 new things occurred. 1. He was neutered on April 8 and 2. He was no longer allowed to go in the backyard untethered (he began to wander too far and I have no fence). He will be outside for awhile, laying in the sun then come in a urinate on the floor. He even jumped on the couch and peed right in front of me. I am at my wits end. Any help on this subject is greatly appreciated.

definitely incorporate bell training, and go back to square 1 (assuming all health problems are ruled out). i really like the umbilical training trick – keep him leashed to you in the house, so if he shows his usual “gotta go” signals, you’re right there to catch him and get him outside. when he DOES go outside, throw a party, make it rain treats, etc.
