sammy is one and he has been paper trained since he was a pup. now i want him to start going outside. he is in his crate all day and as soon as i get home i take him out. however, he will hold it for the 30 min we stay outside. today i tried to take some soiled paper out, but no luck. any suggestions?
Just keep trying. Switching this late is going to be alot harder then house breaking as a puppy. He already has his routine and now you are going to change it on him. Change is hard to take so just be patient with him and eventually he will learn the new routine.
How long have you had him? Since a puppy? Why change now?

You may have to resort back to useing a crate inbetween outings, eventually he will and when he does, be sure he is praised. If he has an accident in the house(if allowed to roam the house), just clean it, give no attention or punishment.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
