I have a six month old English Shepherd/Poodle cross. He is house trained on the first floor of the house. Goes to the do and barks when he needs to go. However, when he is on the second floor of the house he invariably relieves himself. How do I get him to understand that upstairs is also part of his space and not to eliminate there? I have shown him the door upstairs to go out and taken him out of it, but that does not seem to be computing in his mind.

Thanks, Bob

Hi, don't let him on the 2nd floor unless you are watching him constantly.  Every time he 'goes' in the house reinforces that it's okay to do so.  Dogs do not generalize like we do.  Be sure to clean his accidents well so he cannot smell them.  Back to training 101, good luck~

I've created a house training infographic that might help going back to basics:

Great info But I might add my pups are on a lead for quite some time--makes it easier to catch them if they stay close to you Thx again
