housetraining

  1. I'm beyond frustrated

    Housetraining
    I have always had Aussies. Violet is #5. The only difference is she was 14 weeks old when I got her. All the others were between 6-8 week. Housetraining them was a cinch. By 8-10 weeks they were golden ! Violet had been supposedly brought up on pee pads but I seriously doubt it. I bought a pack...
  2. Why won't my dog go to the bathroom outside?

    Housetraining
    We got a new dog about a week ago and the shelter told us he is a little over a year old. We were told he was housebroken but he isn't. Out of the week he's been home, he's peed maybe 4 or 5 times outside and pooped once. Everything else has been in the house. The few times he has gone to the...
  3. Help training dog to understand to pee outside

    Housetraining
    Hi, I got my dog a 4 weeks old along with 2 of his sisters that I fostered til they were all 9 weeks. I started by pee pad training them as it was difficult to maneuver 3 4 week old pups down a set of stairs to go potty. When they were 7 weeks old I started trying to train them to go...
  4. Adult American Bulldog Regressing in Housetraining

    Housetraining
    Hi there, first time posting here. My husband and I have a 5-year-old American Bulldog. We adopted her when she was 2 from a shelter, and she came to us well house-trained. When we first got her, we would only have to take her out two times a day (before and after work), and she would never...
  5. Housetraining a (very) scared and timid dog

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all! I adopted a neglected puppy 5 months ago who is timid and scared. Her biggest fear is outside, she is entirely unresponsive outside while she has opened up and calmed down inside. She is pad trained, however, she will not use the bathroom outside. We go outside everyday to just walk...
  6. Adult House Broken Dog Reverting to Poop in the house

    Housetraining
    Hi All! I have a 5 year old Goldendoodle who picked up potty training immediately as a puppy. In the last 5 years she has not had any accidents, except when she has been sick. My mother came and stayed over the holidays, and when my mom left, my goldendoodle now poops in the guest room or...

    Housetraining
    Hey Dogforum! I'm a new member seeking some help! Just a little background. My girlfriend and I adopted Zelda from a shelter back in April. She was 5 months old. She had accidents often, didn't hold her bladder at all, wasn't crate trained, etc. Well we took her to training classes and worked...
  8. Housetraining while working FT

    Housetraining
    Hi everyone - I have a six-month-old Morkie and I would like to transition her from puppy pads to outside only. I got her when she was 18 weeks and she was partially trained for puppy pads. She will use them 9/10 times, but she does have occasional accidents. I take her out for walks when I...
  9. Help me!! adopted dog so aggressive and keeps escaping

    Introductions
    I just adopted a 1 and 1/2 year old Mastiff lab mix from a rescue shelter. He has a past, he was adopted and then taken back (he is a 73 dog pound) because he knocked down a little kid while playing. My boyfriend and I fell in love with him and adopted him. He is sometimes a calm dog, others...
  10. Toes... My puppies' obsession with them!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Ok so my puppy is adorable; he has all the normal quirks -- barks for attention, loves to play, adores his naps, etc. BUT he is just the most chewiest chewer! Whenever he plays he throws himself at every knob, edge, string, thing he can find and chew and he attacks his tosys like he hasn't eaten...
  11. How to get 4month GSP like her crate again

    Housetraining
    Hello all, I have a 4 month old GSP, Oakley. Both of Oakleys parents worked for the first month and a half and had a dog sitter come in the middle of the day to let her out of the crate to go to the bathroom. She was crate trained pretty quick, as she wouldn't pee or defecate in her crate and...
  12. Help with older dog housetraining

    Housetraining
    I recently rescued a four year old pooch who was severely abused, starved, chained to a tree and then thrown away like he was a piece of garbage. He is the most loving little guy you could ever want. There is a problem with him that I do not have the answer to. Can you potty train an older dog...

  14. Our New Rescue Pup Will Not Pee Outside

    New Additions
    Hey All! Thank you in advance for reading this. I know many new additions struggle to learn their new schedules and may experience some initial bathroom issues. However, our new addition seems to be struggling with this to an extreme degree. We're hoping that some outside perspectives might...
  15. How do I get my puppy to pee outside?

    New Additions
    The title is a (tiny bit) misleading. Because at home(and when we visited my mom) Albus quickly learned where his toilet is outside, and goes when I put him there. He is a 12 week old Cairn Terrier puppy. At home we're currently working on the cue "peepee" to see if this will help at all. But...
  16. Experiencing the terrible two's?!?!

    Housetraining
    I am in need of some help. I have a 2...almost 3 year old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier) and he is the absolute love of our lives. When we got him as a puppy, he was promised to be about 12lbs and he has maxed out at 4lbs. Tiny thing, but again, I wouldn't trade him for anything. Talk about...
  17. Dog needs to go out immediately after being brought inside

    Housetraining
    So we have a great housebroken dog, he's crate trained and never poops or pees inside, but lately, like for the past week, he's been having a problem. We always bring him out once at night time around bed time. So lately we'll go out with him, walk him around the yard, and he'll pee. But when...

    Hi - I am having a bit of a problem and looking for some advice. I have a 4 month old male Westie. We have had him for about a month and housetraining is going as well as can be expected. We are crate training and lucky for us he is very happy in his crate. Here is the issue - overnight he will...

    Housetraining
    Hi - I'm hoping there are some city puppy owners out there who can help me. My boyfriend and I just got our new 3 month old Westie last Sunday, so he's been with us almost 1 week! Immediately, we wanted to start house training him. We live in a busy area outside of NYC. Our house is set back...
  20. Housetrained rescue reverse trained herself

    Housetraining
    Several years ago I inherited a small pom from some neighbors. He was about 9 years old when I got him, and was trained to a pee pad. (It was more convenient for them than taking him outside, I gather.) That wasn't a problem for me -- he's religious about using the pad, so I just continued to...
