potty training

  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Based on observing my two dogs, a dachshund puppy and an adult lab, we've begun to wonder if their interactions with each other are influencing their bathroom habits in a negative way. The puppy refuses to go outside unless a family member or the other dog accompanies her and then will either...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have this puppy. She is 13 weeks old. 3/12 months. We’ve had her for 6 weeks and I keep telling my family potty training takes time. She goes outside very well but when attention taken off of her she will go find a spot to potty in the house. This is normal but is there anything I’m doing...

    We have a new puppy that we got a week ago, he used to be great at going outside but now he’s peeing inside the house again on a regular basis. We’ve gone back to taking him outside every 30 minutes but sometimes he holds it for two hours and sometimes he holds it for 20 minutes. I know he’s a...

    Hi Everyone! I’m at my wits end I don’t know what to do. I have 2 rescue Maltese. One boy and one girl. My boy is great and I don’t have any behavioral issues with him. But recently my girl has me ready to pull my hair out! She’s always been a sneaky pee-er; instead of telling me she needs to go...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Our Labrador was raised in a 4th floor condo for the first 2.5 years of his life. So every time he had to go out to potty, we took him on walks to do so. Fast forward to present day, we just moved into a house with a nice fenced backyard. We were excited because with a baby on the way, we...
  6. Training Journal
    Hi there! I just adopted a chihuahua mix, Arlo, from a shelter about five days ago. He has been a very good dog, except he doesn't ever want to pee outside, or really at all. I have read many articles and such on this topic, but they all say the same thing. My problem is, Arlo doesn't care much...
  7. Puppy Help
    Hello! My boyfriend and I just got a new puppy about a week ago, in the beginning taking him outside was pretty easy, we would do it once an hour, and he didn't have too many accidents. Now he doesn't want to spend any time outside at all. Its kind of like he's scared, his tail is in between his...

    Hello, Our 1 1/2 year old small dog randomly goes to the bathroom in the house. She pees and poop outdoors most of the time (we have a dog door) but will randomly poop on our hardwood floors or pee on our small area rugs (we have no carpet thankfully!) There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or...

    When we first picked up Moxie we had a 20 hour drive back to our home on Magnetic Island here in Australia. I didn't know what to expect having such a new puppy in the car with us for that long. We split the drive up into 3 long days and honestly she was a dream. She never urinated or went potty...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, this is my first time posting. I desperately need any and all advice, I will try everything. My mother and I recently took in a new dog. The home he was at was a mess and the owner barely took care of him. He's real sweet and I love him already, but I have to work on his behavioral...

    We have a new beagle / hound mix (we think) puppy about 13 weeks old. We have had her almost a month now. For the first few weeks she did a great job with sleeping through the night. Recently she has developed a habit of waking us up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. I...

    We got our mini schnauzer, Fritz, when he was 8 weeks old (currently he is 14 weeks old), and we are first time dog owners. Despite having parvo, he learned the basics of potty training quickly. We crate trained and took him outside, but decided as a small dog to just keep him indoors, and...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. We have two Shih Tzu puppies: Gin is female and she is 5 months old, Whisky is a male and he is 4 months old. As potty training we are using the nappy method and when we are not home we leave them in their pen which has their bed, food & water and nappy. They...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi! My 3 month old puppy has been having some severe separation anxiety issues. From the time we got him at 8 weeks old, we have not been able to be out of his sight for one second without him going to the bathroom all over himself. It doesn't matter if we are gone for 2 minutes or 1 hour, he...

    In about a month, my Borzoi will be coming come for the first time and I'd like to get started on housebreaking right away. She'll be 4 months old at the time. My problem is, I live in a shared house with two other dog owners who have a Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso. The Shih Tzu is...

    I recently got a rescue mutt, probably pit mix, about 2.5 weeks ago. He's been a great dog so far, very sweet, but I can't seem to completely potty train him. If I take him out often enough, he will go potty on command easily, no issues. But he does not want to go outside either by himself or...

    Last March my husband and I adopted our girl. She is believed to be 19 months old. We were told she was potty trained. We started noticing she had separation anxiety. We tried to crate her and she destroyed it so we took a chance and let her roam and she didn't destroy anything. She used to...

    I've had my puppy for 4 months now (6 months old). He is a golden retriever. Recently my mom has become frustrated and wants to get rid of him because of one issue. We never really properly potty trained him. We are all happy with him and are able to do everything else but currently the extent...

    Hi, Everybody! Recently I've been running into some issues with my husky puppy and not sure what to do. She's 15 weeks old and a very smart girl so she learned to potty train pretty quickly. As of lately though, she purposely doesn't go on the pee pads when I'm with her. It's not that she...
