Puppy accidents

My puppy is 9 weeks old. She seemed to be doing well with house training. Today I have taken her outside and she goes to the bathroom. I bring her in and within 5 minutes she has an accident. Any tips? Thanks!

My only tip to you really is to remember that she's an extremely young puppy. There will be accidents. Just try to keep on top of her. Good luck!

Accidents are bound to happen with a puppy, When you take her out, try giving her a bit more time. You could also try using a verbal cue when she goes ( It will make things a lot easier down the road later if you plan to train her to use a specific area or if you plan on traveling/ taking her places), and at her age, make sure to be lavish with the treat and/or the praise if she does go of course. When she has an accident, give her a cold shoulder as you clean it up. No attention, watch her out of the corner of your eye, but nothing direct until the mess is gone. Then carry on as usual. How you handle the accident holds just as much weight as how you handle to good business outside.

Ahh... I remember this journey...

Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting.

yeah well the bathroom is a fairly logical place to go wees- they copy us. Try shutting the bathroom door when your not in there if you dont want accidents in there or put the pee mat in there if you use one. My dog would go on her wee mat in the ensuite at the same time I went wee- . ha ha ha 😅 You prob weed on the carpet when you were a toddler too ☺️ Repitition is the key.

Hi! She is still a baby. I just raised two puppies of my own (a Westie and a Frenchie). They are now 1.5 years old and doing great. It took a little time, but no accidents in the house anymore (even though they are not neutered male dogs!).

I believe patience is key at this stage. Did you catch her in the act when she had her accident? What I used to do, and found very effective, is to pick them up (while they are doing their business) and carry them outside. I would say "no" in an assertive but calm manner and shake them once (more to surprise/startle them).

Don't hit them or start shouting! Once you put the pup down in the grass you can simply say "go potty" and praise her when she goes outside! Hope this tip will help you out!
