Default Toilet training 2 weeks in....

I've had my Westie pup now for 2 weeks. He knows that outside is the place to go as i give him a little treat when he does it correctly. But we're still having a few accidents inside the house.

Is this normal?

of course its compelty normal. 2 weeks is not long at all it can take months before fully housebroken infact i wud say a few months is average someone correct me if im wrong? esp in toy breeds they do take a wile longer.
i have had 2 king charles both was 3/4 months before housebrokn even then there was the odd acident its to be expeceted. your doing great tho with the treats keep that up ! dont make a big deal if accident in house just clean it up. and then praise like mad when he does go toilet outside.
btw he is a lil cutie

trayc is right, it is perfectly normal. Dogs aren't like us in that they suddenly "get it" and never make the same mistake again. It's more like they get it right more and more often and make fewer and fewer mistakes as time goes on. Sounds like you are doing good!

Few......

I dont make a massive fuss when he does it inside, just say NO! then plonk him outside while I clean up. I never ever scold if he has done it without me seeing.

He is also doing great on the whole trouser tuggy stage. He still does it but a lot less

i have a westie she is 16 months now and she was not fully house trained until she was 6 months old you have to be patient and give the pup lotsa praise when he/she goes outside i'll be in your shoes again in a few weeks as i'm getting another westie. good luck and be patient

The only way to prevent mistakes is to watch him 24/7 & that's imposible. Tilba is nearly 9 mths & still makes mistakes. I thought we were finally there a couple of weeks ago as she hadn't been in the house for about 3 weeks. Then the weekend b4 last she was sick & did it inside twice. And again this week. She does bark when she wants in or out but because our weekends are different than through the week there isn't always someone around to hear her & let her out.
I thought April was slow, Sooty was reliable at 10 weeks, but this one, oh my.
