    Potty training Regression?

    My 5 1/2 month old puppy was doing great wtih potty training, no accidents for a couple of weeks. She also did fab on vacation at the condo with only one accident after another dog did the same thing. now that we are home, she is having accidents again. We gave her more freedom in the house as weel. It is normal potty training one step forward two steps back or too much freedom?

    If you just got home from a vacation, she may just be re-adjusting. I would just take her out often and keep an eye on her. When she does go where she is supposed to, give her a treat and lots of love.
    "Without dogs, our houses are cold receptacles for things. Dogs make a fire warmer with their curled presence. They wake us, greet us, protect us and ultimately carve a place in our hearts and our history. On reflection, our lives are often referenced in parts defined by the all-too-short lives of our dogs."

    My puppy did this too and I just went back to puppy training 101. It's tough because just as you think all the really hard work is done something like this happen. It happened again for me when I gave her more freedom.
    Good Luck

    I agree! Besides, most puppies don't gain complete physical control of their bladders and bowels until about 6 months old, give or take, each dog being different. So, there can still be accidents. I know our first puppy had accidents until about 7 months old. And, usually, a vacation means some changes in your schedules, so she may just need a little help getting back to her routine!
