  1. How To Handle Poo?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am a first time dog owner. I now am a mother of an eight week old male Corgi mix. He is sweet, vocal, and seems pretty smart. We currently keep him in the crate when no one is home. However, when one of us is home, we have a small tiled room, and have given about a 1/4 of the room to him...
  2. House training a new puppy with a full time work schedule

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone, I'm getting a 9-week old female Springerdoodle puppy. I will be able to be home with her all day for two weeks, then I start working (I'm a teacher). A few details about our situation: - I live in an apartment - puppy has been eating twice a day, early morning and evening times...
  3. HELP! Puppy needs SERIOUS training!

    Dog Training Forum
    Now, I'm not sure if you saw my first post about how it made my Simba seem so sweet and perfect. Don't get me wrong, he's adorable, and oh so sweet! But he needs training, and fast. Simba is a 6 month old Pomeranian Puppy, he is so sweet and loving. He has never purposefully hurt or growled at...
  4. What is house training goal?

    Dog Training Forum
    Is the goal of house training to get the puppy to not pee/poo in the house, or is it to get the puppy to pee/poo on a schedule? Is it the latter in order to get to the former? The reason I ask is that I'm finding it hard to get to a schedule during the day (not hard at night). Some pees/poos...
  5. When can I have doormats again?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm on week #2 of house training a 13 week old newfie puppy. She's been doing really well - rings a bell to go outside - but has a consistent weakness: she'll pee on anything near the inside of the door. Once it was a towel I had put there in anticipation of wiping her feet, and twice now on...
  6. Submissive Urination

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi everybody! I just adopted a 1 yr old Silky Terrier Mix yesterday and I've noticed that every time I go to pick her up, she crouches down and I notice a small puddle. I'm not sure if this is because she was just spayed yesterday or if this is Submissive Urination - but either way, any...
  7. Pup peed in crate: Do I need to get all new bedding?

    General Dog Forum
    Our eight-month-old cavalier has been spending every night in a crate since we got him at 9 weeks. (First a small one, now a large one.) His crate has a dog bed and a blanket. He's been house trained for a long time, and hasn't peed or pooped in the house in months. He still doesn't hold it...
  8. Need help getting our dog to pee outside!

    Dog Training Forum
    A few days ago, my roommate and I rescued a dog, a Manchester terrier mix we named Luna. She's 2 years old, very sweet, but she was a stray, so she's not house trained. We've managed to get her to poop outside, but peeing is still a big issue. The problem is that she knows to hold it when we're...
  9. A puppy that only poos indoors!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi I know everyone asks about potty training but we need some advice! We just adopted a german shepherd from the shelter and he is happy to poo on paper (which we have moved to the garden door) but we cannot get him to poo outside: • Because he was abandoned when we try to cage him no matter how...
  10. What to do indoors. Regarding puppy house training.

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm curious about what to do about house training a puppy when you're indoors and they potty. I've heard two sides and don't know which I should do. I've heard of disciplining them for when they potty indoors. And I've also heard to not do anything when they potty indoors and to just reward for...

    Hello everyone (I posted this in the new users thread too, sorry for the repeat!), I just got a new puppy and am in the process of trying to house train her.

  13. Puppy potty traning

    Attention All New Members
    Hello everyone, I just got a new puppy and am in the process of trying to house train her. When I first got her, last weekend, she seemed to be doing pretty well.

  14. Trust Training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello Everyone! I wanted to know and hopefully get some training advice as to how to get my 1 year old, crate-trained pugs to be trusted to be left in the house alone without peeing/pooing or destroying anything! They are capable of holding it in their crate for the entire work day, but I feel...
  15. My dog "asks" to be let out but then doesn't potty

    Dog Training Forum
    We adopted a Retriever/Border Collie mix a few weeks ago. He's about 3 1/2 months old. He's VERY smart, and may be a little too smart for his own good (or ours!) We have been pretty successful with crate training and house training, at least until a few days ago. We followed the usual advice for...

  19. Dog peeing in house randomly

    Dog Training Forum
    She's a 6 month old pit bull mix, and while I recognize that she's very young and may not be fully potty trained yet, it is strange to me that she goes inside within a half hour of peeing outside. I don't know how to remedy this behavior, I always take her out whenever she goes to the door but...
