Ok let first start with the peeing in the crate, this has to stop. Make the crate smaller and remove anything that will soak up urine (bedding) and cut way back on water, give him access to the water every 3-4 hours unless excersing. Make sure he is empty before putting him in. Before you leave and immediately upon returning home ignore him for at least 15 minutes. That means everybody in the house and even when he is barking, or peeing. YOU CANNOT CORRECT him at this point for this. Let it go Its really hard to say without observing you and the family interacting with him. I've got a plan for you Start here and either post or pm me in a week or so. Wanna kill these ads?
