I have a 4&1/2 month old Redbone Coonhound. She is a beautiful, affectionate puppy, but we're having a very hard time with housebreaking. During the day we take her out every hour, or at the most, 2 hours (we're retired). She pees every time. But then, sometimes she pees while sleeping on the couch. We now always put something under her. She doesn't get up, so I don't know she's wet until I get her up to go outside. Same thing in the car. She also doesn't mind peeing in her crate. We have tried making it very small, but with no improvement.

She was just checked for a UTI and is on antibiotics. We were hoping that once that is cleared up, she will improve. But so far, there has been no change. We get up twice over night to take her out, and most of the time she still has accidents.

We have done everything the vet and online articles have prescribed, so I'm hoping you might have some new insights.

Thanks for your help.
