Default Frustrated with new puppy

i just got a French Bulldog puppy only 9 weeks old...i just got him yesterday, im only 18 going to college when summer is over and i thought hed learn a little quicker than ive been noticing, hes been kenneled with his mother since he was with the breeder and now that hes home in a different kennel all he does is whine, i cant sleep at night im going to move him into the bathroom but i dont want him to get lonely or anything. And everytime i leave him outside hell go to the bathroom and everything, but i live in california, and if uve heard of the weather lately its been HOT so i keep him around the house walking when i let him out, but it seems like he just pees everywhere and poos and everything even with potty pads lieing around, im getting frusterated and i dont know what to do! any advice would really help...haha i just wish puppies were automatically potty trained and didnt whine...

Hey ebaydan, are you even remotely considering having kids?
Just kidding.

A couple of things.

At 9 wks your dog is really a baby. He whines when you leave because he is scared. Try leaving for a short time, like 10 minutes and then come back. Increase the time to a few hours. He WILL be sad, but dogs learn to live iwht it.

Peeing and pooing in the house is something else. Your puppy literally cannot hold it yet (think of why human babies wear diapers). Take him outside every hour or so. They say that for each month of age, a dog can hold it that many hours. When he poos or pees outside, act like he just won the Nobel prize. If he starts to pee/poo inside, don't make a big deal out of it, just get him outside quickly with a minimum of fuss. If you act like he is doing something bad, he will only learn to hide his land mines from you and you will find surprises behind the sofa etc.

Good luck!

dan, I say that before puppies are born, they sit in little classrooms in heaven learning to give humans the 'look' that makes them feel like a heel.
Look at my avatar, you need a heart of stone to resist them. Which I do not have....

yes that is a perfect saying haha....well alright i guess i just gotta live with it, now is it a better idea that i keep him in my room all the time (including night) so he gets used to the idea of where he is and hopefully he wont whine in a week or so, or should i move his kennel to the bathroom area so I can sleep at night lol, right now his kennel isnt big at all it fits about 4 times the size of him (and hes tiny) he has a bed, then in front of the door is a potty pad with food and water on it, he never pees on his bed only the potty pad, unless i take him out then he pees wherever the heck he wants in the house when were playing even when the pad is 3 inches away, and like i said its 108 degrees right now, outside is a bad idea can u help with advice on all this..pppleeeaaseee haha

this may come out wrong but definitely don't mean it that way...but you said you just got him yesterday?? That's really not reasonable time for a puppy to learn anything...they need several days alone just to adjust to their new surroundings...

We're raising newborns right now and we just moved a radio into the room w/ them even though their ears and eyes aren't open yet but I strongly believe that animals can feel soundwaves too and we're always in there talking with them and when we're not we leave a talk radio on. You can try leaving him some toys also in his crate. Someone on here so wonderfully suggested Kong toys for our pup when we first got her so she'd stop whining and sure enough she LOVED them. They make puppy specific Kongs for his teeth and it'll keep him busy with the treats inside it that he may not even notice you're gone right away.

Hes need comfort, try a clock wrapped in a sock or something , to give him when you put him to bed. Also leave a radio on for him when hes alone. At 9 weeks his new life is just beginning and he needs to adjust. He is only a tiny baby so it will take time.

How long are you going to leave your puppy? Are you going to take him to puppy socialisation and training? He needs comfort - he only left his Mom yesterday. I wish you all the best, its difficult enough giving your best to educational studies when you have a puppy who needs training.

I with you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll get some useful advice from other members here.
