Question H2O monitoring?


I have had my puppy for almost 3 weeks now. I am trying hard to house break her. She is smart and has got the crying at the door thing down for pooping outside. As for peeing- she is a watering can and my apt is the lawn. She is peeing all over. There is wee wee pads down and she uses them 60% of the time and the others she just squats wherever.

My ? is: I have a petwell water fountain that is left out all the time bc I have 2 cats. Should I be monitoring my puppys water intake to avoid the peeing everywhere bc she drinks a lot???

Thanks for the feedbacks

Your pup should always have free access to water. How old is she? And how often do you take her out? You will want to at least every two hours, plus after play time or nap time. If she really can't seem to control her bladder, perhaps talking to a vet wouldn't be a bad idea. Good luck!

She is still a baby she will be 9 weeks on Tuesday coming. 2 ppl told me to monitor her water or she'll never be trained and I didnt get that so I figured id post it on here and see what ppl had to say bout it. I take her out after naps but she never shows signs of pping only whimpers and jumps at door when she needs to poop.

Nine weeks is pretty young to expect them to know where to pee. I think Laceface is right, it's a good idea to haev the vet do a urinalysis to make sure she doesn't have a UTI. If she does she won't be able to control her peeing at all and all the training in the world won't help.

If you're using pads though that can confuse her. Dogs don't understand that pads are ok and other places aren't. I think it's time to take her outside to pee and praise her when she does. Get rid of the pee pads and if she pees indoors, clean up up well and don't make a big deal of it, just ignore it. If you use pee pads she'll think you think it's ok to pee inside.
