Default Unexperienced and looking for your help!

Hello Everyone, I'm looking for some advice on toilet training my new pup. Max is nearly 12 weeks old. We take him into the garden every hour and wait and wait and nothing happens. As soon as he comes back in he wees on the kitchen floor. No matter how long we stay out for he still wees in the kitchen.
On one occasion he did "go" in the garden and we such a huge fuss and gave lots of praise and cuddles etc but, it was a one time thing. Are we putting too much pressure on him? Is this normal such a young pup? Any advice welcome. Thank you in advance, Catriona xx.

Hi Catriona wouldn't make a big thing out of it he is only 12 weeks and is still a baby, sorry I've forgotten what breed he is . Some breeds take longer than others to toilet train and you just have to be patient. Also the tiime of year you get a puppy in this country with all the rain we've been having recently doesn't help. I got Rye on hogmanay when the weather was awful and he took much longer to toilet train than Pellow who I got in March and could leave the back door open for him at this time of year, but borzois are an easy breed to toilet train unlike the dachies who are a very hard breed to train and take much longer. he is only being a puppy but when he does it outside you are doing the right thing by lots of praise and if he does it inside please try to ignore it do not rub his nose in it or scold him but just take him outside with persistence he will eveentually get the message.

Thanks for that. His mum was a collie and his dad a lurcher. He's so beautiful and is doing really well settling into family life. I know what you mean about the weather - I wouldn't fancy having to go outside in this to do my business. We'll persevere. It's good to know we're not doing anything wrong! Thank heavens for linoleum xx.

We've got a flap and we trained them to go through it. So, now, they do most of their business outside but they still pee in the house throughout the day... It depends if we're around or not. If we are near them when they want to pee, they go outside, but if we're in another room, they'll do it on the newspaper (which is where they were trained to go). I think it just takes time, they are still learning. Trooper peed just in front of the flap at lunchtime, inside not outside ......

Hi

My girl Bella is still peeing inside and she's nearly 7 months old, she is a nightmare. She is worse in the evening, I am up and down like a yo yo as she keeps going to the door, going out then coming back in to pee !

Not sure where I went wrong as have never had this problem with a dog before. Hamish my new boy is only 15 weeks old and is miles better, goes outside nearly all the time. Any suggestions welcome, I haven't punished her when she gets it wrong but have now, on the advice of a friend started to scold her verbally when I catch her at it now. Any suggestions welcome please. PS she manages to go all night without any mess so not a case of a weak bladder !

Hi Gayeb, and welcome!
Have you taken her to the vet to rule out a UTI? Just because she can 'hold it" all night does not prove there is nothing medically wrong with her. It could be something else, who knows, maybe how much she is drinking.
And your friend who told you to scold her when you catch her at it has given you bad advice. About all you will accomplish is that Bella will get sneaky about it since she will make the logical connection that you do not like to see her pee-inside OR out.

Hi Skunkstripe

thanks for that advice. By scold her I only tell her off in a growly kind of voice should I just ignore it. I do praise her very highly when she does it outside. I will ask the vet as sometimes it's very little puddles, am due back with Hamish next week.

Hamish just accidentally bit me in play ouch ! - he's got teeth like little needles (maybe that's why the family I got him from with 2 young kids couldn't cope !) , Bella never did that and still doesn't ! How do I tell him off for that and get him to be more gentle when he is playing ?
