Toileting Indoors

I have a 15 month old male cocker spaniel who keeps urinating and defecating in the house when he's left alone. He gets let out/walked at regular intervals and is rarely left for long periods. He'll never have accidents when you are with him and knows to ask when he needs to go out to toilet.

I had a urine sample checked at the vet incase it was due to medical reasons but it's came back clear! He has been neutered. I'm not sure if it's separation anxiety as he doesn't display any other symptoms and doesn't appear overly anxious when you leave the house but clearly is behavioural since we've ruled out medical issues.

Please help! (I'm running out of kitchen roll!)

I would use crate training in this situation. If you crate train your dog it will be less likely to soil in the crate. It is a simple process and most dogs come to love there crate like a little den. I would try that and see how it goes. Good luck if you need help on crate training there is a great thread on it here in this forum.

Crate training is an option but I really hate using it.

I also hate crates. However, in my situation, I didn't have a choice, and I can tell it really helps in potty training. In my opinion the most important is to take the reasonably large pen, for example, I took this one, and I'm perfectly happy.
