house breaking

  1. New Additions
    My boyfriend and I have just adopted a 2-year old Dachshund. He has spent his entire life thus far in a breeding kennel, and is very distrusting of humans. Day 1- we let him stay in his carrier with the door open so he could come out of the carrier as he pleased. We provided positive...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I just rescued a 1 year old dog from a rescue organization. We were told this pup was fully potty trained with her previous owner. Unfortunately, her foster parents let her roam a 10 acre ranch for the 3-4 weeks leading up to time we adopted her. (unaware of this until adoption...

    3 months ago my husband and I purchased this nice, soft gray comfortable comforter and have only been able to sleep with it a few times because our 1 year old Shepard mix will pee on it whenever we put it on our bed. Today I washed it yet again, she was out of the crate for a total of 5 minutes...

    I have a 5 month old Bernedoodle. He came to us litter box trained and is very good at it. We are now trying to transition him to outside. He does not go outside for the most part. He usually he comes back in and pees on the carpet or poops on the stairs or floor after spending 20-30 minutes...

    I adopted a Hound Mix about 8 months ago. She wasn't fully house trained, but learned quickly. She will go 6 weeks or so without an accident and then have one. She knows that she should go outside, and holds it all day when free in the house and I'm at work. Some of the accidents are...

    A few months ago I got a 1 year old, male, husky-shepherd from our local shelter. He didn't make messes in his kennel there, and he had been great after we got him home. But after a few weeks he started pooping in the house. And it progressed from poop to diahrea. So I took him to the vet and...

    We need some help or techniques to help train our puppy to let us know she needs to go outside. A little information here - Our puppy is about 5 1/2 months old and we've had her since she was 3 months. When we got her she was pretty much pee pad trained and knew to pee when she went outside...

    I've always been a homemaker. I love taking care of anybody important to me. I decided a few weeks ago I wanted a dog although my fiance didn't really think it was a good idea. I convinced him that adopting a dog from the shelter would be good for us as much as the dog. So, we adopted nix. We...

    Friends - I hope someone out there can help, In October 2016, my husband and I adopted a 2 year old black lab/greyhound mix - his name is Charlie. From Day 1 with us, he has been going potty in our home and it is both urine and feces. Now, it is important to note that Charlie has always...

    Hi all, I am new to the forum because I'm desperately looking for some help with my doggo situation. I have a 14 year old female dachshund, Suki- sweetest old thing you ever did see. I got her when I was a teenager and she has been at my mom's house since. She used to be house-trained but has...

    Hello, I rescued a male, 15lb, mixed breed dog a little over a year ago. This is my first dog. The shelter told me that he was not house trained but he seemed to quickly catch on and he didn't have any accidents for a few months after getting him. He still occasionally has accidents, but they...

    Help. I have blown it! I "trained" my Chihuahua/Minpin mix on puppy pads which I am sorry I did. He stands on it (sweet boy) but misses the pad. The carpet cleaning bills are getting unaffordable. I have put him in a crate ON my bed next to me at night and he SCREAMS all night (I have...

    Hank, my german shepard/lab mix, is 3 years old and we have had him for a little over two years. We got him from the shelter when he was 9 months. He was mostly potty trained then, but has always had the occasional accident. Lately it seems like it is almost every day though. The only time we...

    I need to provide a bit of backstory to make sense of my problem. I'm sorry for the length. On days one-two home with 7 week old pup, I would take him out to a dirt area by my apartment. The only grass around my apartment is frequented constantly by sketchy dogs and owners who don't even pick...

    Hi all. So a week ago I adopted an Aussie mix named Theo (currently 11 weeks ago). From bringing him home, I automatically just began putting him in a playpen that we had and started house training and basic obedience training. The house training is going pretty well so far, I've been taking...

    Hi everybody, My husband and I recently adopted a 3 year old Parson Russell Terrier from a local rescue. He's been with us almost 3 weeks, but I am having trouble with his potty schedule.

    About a week ago my partner came across a stray young female dog, we have been searching for an owner but so far no luck. In the mean time she is living with us, she was very skittish and would throw herself on to her belly being submissive a lot, but is a very friendly, playful and affectionate...
