I'm in need of some advise. My youngest of three is having an issue with going potty in the house while we are at work. He is 16 months old - completely potty trained - rings the bell when he has to go out etc. If we leave him in his crate when we are gone (which really isn't all that long between our two schedules) he's fine. It's when we leave him out. At first I thought he was probably playing with our older boy and then gets himself all worked up and has to use the bathroom. So after a while I would just leave him in the kitchen dividing the two rooms with a gate. Unfortunately there are still days that my husband comes home at lunch to find that he has gone in the house again.
Am I maybe just jumping the gun with this one leaving him out? Maybe he's still too much of a puppy and needs to be crated during the day. Or (this is stretching it)could there be some kind of medical issue I'm overlooking?
Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
