I should have added that I assume your friends don’t know anything in the dog’s history before they adopted the dog (or after) that might account for this behavior? I also wonder if it’s possible the dog did pee in the house under the previous owner(s) or, possibly, does sometimes pee inside w/its current owners but that they haven’t found it. That’s a long shot, I know, but it is possible, I suppose. Is this a shelter dog? Not sure exactly where these questions are leading, but some of this information might be relevant. But even if some of this info is known, I’m not sure how it might be relevant to developing a habitation plan. My hunch — just a hunch — is that the practical way to proceed is to make believe the dog’s a puppy re: pooping and get it on a regular schedule, based on when the dog’s fed. Interesting problem.
