I have my doubts about that plan, but good luck. A dog will pee anywhere as long as it doesn't have to lay in it and it sounds like the area will be too big to ensure that. Get a crate - they make...

Crate training works well as long as the crate is not too big. Limit food and water after a certain time each day. Take the dog outside more, even if it was just out an hour ago. Just take it out...

If it's just where the wall meets the tub or counter (change of plane) then it shouldn't have been grouted at that joint - caulk or silicone is used at changes of plane.
