5 month old house training regression
For the last two months, my 5 month old puppy was pretty reliable at peeing outside with only 1-2 mistakes inside a week. In the last week, it seems we have regressed. Today, 4 pees inside, and pretty consistently 1 pee inside a day for the last week or so. No big changes in home life, schedule, diet, water intake. She is let out to pee whenever she is at the door. But lately, every once and a while, she just gets up and goes pee, without even going to the door first. The only thing I can think of is that we've gotten lazier in going outside with her and giving her lavish praise each time she pees.
Should we go back to going outside with her each time she goes to the door and heaping on the praise? Is this regression 'normal'?
