  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone! I have a weird issue. My dog is 6 yrs old and she used to potty in the back yard with no problem. Peepee and poopoo with no issues. After the big rain three days ago she refuses to even put a Step on it. She smells it and goes away. However when I open the front door of the house...

    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...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 12 y/o mini dachshund, the prettiest in the world, if that makes a difference, was pretty easy to potty train. Rarely an accident as an adult. She has surprised me with her ability to hold it when necessary. When I go to work, she holds it every day for about 10.5 hours. Then at night, she...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi~ Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I rescued a dog from a reputable small breed rescue that I have adopted from before. However, this particular dog came right from his bad home situation almost directly to me with a brief stop for 48 hours with a foster to be...

    Hi All, I have a 7.5 Maltipoo Jazz, who's very smart and at the same time afraid of new things. She's trained to the point where I can leave the front door open and she won't go outside until I give the command. Every since I got her at 9 weeks, we've pretty much been together. Since I'm lucky...

    Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and I need some help. We have a 1 year old Chihuahua, her name is Zoe. She is trained to go on her potty pads but here is the problem we are facing... She will sometimes grab one of the potty pads, run to another room with them and then tear them up. She...

    I have a Rat Terrier pup from an accidental litter. She's currently 10 weeks (we brought her home at 8 weeks), very hyper active. We limit her to our second living room (no barriers, she's very obedient when it comes to thresholds and I tell her no, she won't cross and will come running back)...

    Okay, so this is the story. Me and my husband got a boston terrier at 3 months of age. She was quite sick at first and the vet told us to not take her outside. The first time she went outside she was already 4.5 months old. When she was supposed to be inside at all times, she peed and pooped in...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    We recently adopted a 13-month old Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix named Leo and we are absolutely in love with him. However, the little stinker will only go to the bathroom (both peeing and pooping) on walks! We're trying to get him to pee on a tree outside of our house, but he'll just sit down and not...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Here is the situation: I adopted my dog 1 year ago from a Breeder who did not want her anymore due to uterus problems. She is fixed, now 6 years old, and honestly a wonderful dog. She is a Pomeranian, sweet natured (with people and animals), a bit of an alpha female (she humps other dogs), very...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    I rescued a 9 year old Papillon 2 months ago. I watched videos on how to bring him home, etc. He won't pee or poop in his playyard area of course, but after I take him outside to go potty, I give him house time and he goes around marking things. I immediately put him outside again and then back...

    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. Because I work from home, Jack spends most of his day following me around, or sleeping by my side while I...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello and thank you for reading :) I got my chihuahua / beagle mix from a local animal shelter about a year ago. She's a very good dog, mostly obedient, she's also pretty smart (we counted, she knows 37 words). However, there's just one problem. Ever since I got her, she has not pottied in...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a dog this past January. Our vet and the organization we adopted her from could not be certain of her age, but judging by her teeth they said between 8 months to 2 years (wide range, I know!). We started her on our other dog's dog food, which is the Premium Newman's Own Advanced...

    Hi all, Sorry for the nondescriptive title, as I have a number of questions to ask and would be really thankful for some advice :) I'm the proud, first-time owner/mommy of a cocker spaniel female puppy, named Miko, who's around 2 months now. 1. Apartment potty training - I think Miko's natural...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 5-year old beagle/hound mix that up until last week had no problems using the back door doggy door to get into an area of my back yard that is fenced in. That is where she would do her business all well and fine. And then suddenly she started to use the carpeted areas of my home as her...
  17. New Additions
    Hello all. Let me start by saying that I have read the previous posts back to 2010 for help but they don't seek to address my problem. It seems as though my new 8 week old pomeranian puppy has a bit of a an attitude. He only wants to be bothered on his terms and seems a little stubborn. He...

    I just got (yesterday) a 2 month old border collie and I want to start house training her. Here is the situation, I live on the 3rd floor, but it's not a typical building as we have our stairs and a yard. The problem is my father doesn't want to keep the puppy on a leash or to prevent it's...
  19. Puppy Help
    Her name is Minnie. She's scientifically a mutt and she's gorgeous. She's as sweet as can be. Very affectionate. Plays incredibly well with her new big brother Bernie (45+ pound Shepherd/Collie Mix). We are however having issues with potty training. Having a lot of trouble getting her to grasp...

    Hi. We have a 3 month old male whippet puppy, Truffles. We are training him to use puppy pads (like newspapers) in the guest bathroom for his business (we live in a high-rise in a big city and this is the best option for us). He understands just fine that is where he is supposed to go (he...
