    Now how in the world can you ever be mad at such a cute little thing like that?





    Probably when you have to clean the poop right?

    This belongs in training I think...

    Are you confining your puppy at all? Keep her away from that spot. Don't leave her alone if she's not confined. How old is she? How long is she left alone?

    Also, what do you do when you come home and find the poop? How do you handle the situation?

    Ok, so she's 4 months old... and how many hours is she left alone? A 4 month old puppy can only hold it for 4 or 5 hours, and toy dogs for even less than that.

    Also, you didn't answer my other question... How do you deal with the situation when you come home and find that your puppy has pooped on the floor? This is important.

    I feel really mad when she poops in my room. I pick up the poop, put it in a bag, and yell at her. And, she might be left home for more than 5 hours.

    Ok, next time you come home to the poop, try and remember this:

    The poop has been sitting there for quite a while, and your puppy doesn't even remember doing it by the time you get home. Your puppy will most likely look "guilty" when you come home to find the poop, but the only reason she acts that way is because she knows that when you come home you get angry for some reason that she doesn't understand so she is acting submissive to try and calm you down.

    So when you come home, take a deep breath, count to ten, and greet your dog happily, poop or no poop, and put her out of view when you clean it up so she doesn't see.

    The fact here is, she is left alone for too long and she can't hold it that long. Is there anyone who can let her out to potty during the day?

    Block her from getting to that spot to poop. Confine her to a small space if you have to. My grandmother kept her pekingese puppy in a playpen made for human babies and just lined it with newspaper. Maybe you could do something similar?

    First of all she is a puppy. Does ANYONE in your house take the pup outside for potty during the day when you are not there? You can't expect a young pup (especially little breeds) to hold it for a long time.

    Second, CRATE her! But you still need to have somone taking her out to potty.

    Third, NEVER EVER yell at your dog after the fact. Belle has NO idea why she's getting yelled at - so you will be training her to be scared of you!

    Fourth, you have to use a cleaner to get rid of the smell - just picking it up will not work. The smell is still there and she knows it. Use some of Nature's Miracle to clean the area where she is going.



    And to be honest, if no one is around during the day to supervise, take care of a puppy for training, then you really should NOT have a puppy. You might do better with an older dog that is trained and more reliable. I know pups are cute, but you really need the time and someone home during the day to have them properly trained in all areas.

    Oh yes Keno's Mom, oh yes. My bro takes her outside, in the front, to go pee pee and poo poo. And Cheetah, I shall remember your clever idea.

    Ok, how often is your brother taking her out. And is he getting her to go as soon as he's outside, or is he outside playing and when Belle has to go, she goes?

    It that's the case, then no wonder poor Belle is confused. You need to start training her that when you first go outside is when she is to potty BEFORE any playing time is allowed.

    That might help with her going inside. I get the feeling your brother isn't taking her often enough. And if you are in school, how old is your brother that he's not in school?

    I agree with the above posters.

    Crate training is a great way to house train your pet. As young as she is, she will not know she is to hold it.

    You cannot expect a dog to potty train itself.

    As for why she poops in the same place over and over again- when a dog uses the bathroom, their scent and phermones is attached to the bowel movement. As you may know, dogs mark their territory and familliar places by urinating. Defecating is no different.

    She automatically will go to a place where she has used the bathroom before to relieve herself again. That is very very normal canine behavior.

    Many people use this particular trait of dogs to help house break them. They first get their dogs on a potty schedule, and immediately take the dogs from the crate to the yard outside to use the bathroom.

    The dog will associate that one place with using the bathroom, and will eventually only want to use the bathroom outside and at that same spot.

    Getting angry at a puppy doesn't accomplish anything. They really don't understand why you're angry. If this will be a continuous problem for you, and you don't have the time to retrain her, you may want to consider rehoming her.

    Any puppy that you get in the future will probably have this problem. Therefore, I suggest an older dog who is already potty trained, which will better fit your family's needs.

    Also, even though children have the best intentions, it is up to the parent to make sure that the puppy receives the proper care.

    Hmm. you're right Snowshoe. I'm really sorry about the rude message. I'm guessing you don't forgive me.

    As long as you are willing to try some of the things suggested by those who have more experience, you shouldn't feel hurt or upset. We all want to see happy, well trained dogs.

    Puppys take a heck of a lot of training (proper) and if you don't have the time to do it right, adopt an older dog that is trained.

    For us (and we could train a puppy if necessary) we just prefer older dogs that are trained in basics and housebroken. Its a lot easier for us.

    You want Belle to be a good puppy - so start doing things the right way so she's a well behaved dog and you don't have problems.

I've helped train upwards of 50 dogs trust me.
    I could not disagree with you more. Positive reinforcement is much more effective then punishment. Dogs do not think like people do and punishment just does not make sense to the dog.

    ilovemychihuahua, there are several threads on here about house training a pup. http://www.dogforums.com/3-dog-train...eeds-love.html (My Baby NEEDS Love)
    Read PennyRose's post in this topic. It has some very good housetraining advice in it. Hope this helps.

    Sorry Cujo,

    Everything I have ever heard and read says NOT to do that. Dogs will have no idea after the fact what you're telling them. They'll just think you're being mean.

    Monitors,

    Can this Cujo person be banned from posting in here? The advice that he posts is very cruel and inhumane. He might think its funny but somewhere/some time, a person that really doesn't know any better will be doing these things to their dog.

    NOBODY LISTEN TO THIS POSTER.

    Cujo, you are suggesting ABUSIVE "training" techniques, and you are going around posting rude comments which we continue to have to remove. I highly doubt you have trained 50 dogs using that method. If you have used those techniques 50 times over, it is abuse, and nothing more, and I feel sorry for them.

    I'm going to have to ask that you don't give out advice if it involves PHYSICAL punishment (hitting of ANY kind, rubbing a dog's face in its excrement, etc.). This is NOT that kind of forum, and if you insist on giving such advice, maybe this is not the forum for you. >u.u<
