House break an older yorkie?
My yorkie will be 9 in August, and we have issues with him peeing in the house as well. When we got him as a baby, he was litter box trained, so we carried that over and he is trained to use the pee pad when no one is home or in the middle of the night. It is located in the laundry room, same place as his food and water, and he does reall well with it....sometimes. He is spoiled so if there are over three (yes..three) spots on it, he refuses to use it and will go on the rug or on the floor right next to it. The rug is for our entrance into the house from the garage, so it needs to be there. The funny thing is, we have a brown one and a pink one. The pink one he will not pee on as often, but the brown one he will use constantly! He still poops in the house randomly as well. Sometimes he will come in from outside and go in the house! It drives us nuts! I am thinking he will never be trained now that he is so old we must have done something wrong with this one.

I do think indoor training can be very confusing for some dogs...mine included. I wished I'd trained them to go outside only.
For training, the only thing I can recommend is to go back to the basics....check out the potty training threads here: General Training Questions - YorkieTalk.com Forums - Yorkshire Terrier Community
