    My dog is 4 years old. Ive had him since he was 8 weeks. The past 4 or 5 months hes been peeing on the floor EVERY time I leave the house. Hes not super anxious but hes high energy. I exercise him plenty every day. If I'm home with him he can go like 5 or 6 hours without going outside and...

    I got my second puppy in November he is a cardigan welsh corgi same as my older dog. My first corgi was very easy to train, non destructive, fairly independent. He had only a couple accidents inside and has been house broken since. We were lucky enough that when we got him we were living with a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. When I first got her, last weekend, she seemed to be doing pretty well. I would take her out every hour or so and she was doing a pretty...

    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. I would take her out every hour or so and she was doing a pretty good job (maybe 50-50) of doing her business while we were outside...

    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...

    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...

    Here is a great article we found in Holistic Pets regarding urinary track health and how to avoid urinary track infections and bladder stones. Remember that an indoor dog toilet is a "relief" for your pet, but they still need daily walks and exercise to stay healthy.
