    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all. This is my first post :) We currently have a 4 year old crate trained Bichon Frise named Lily. It took us about 2 and 1/2 years to fully housebreak her to go outside. Even today, she will go stand by the door but doesn't know to bark at it so if you aren't around or aren't paying...

  5. My puppy goes poop in his crate at night.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Last week, I just got a F1 Mini Goldendoodle. He is now seven weeks old. The house training has gone really well, except at night. We feed him dinner at the same time every day, and don't put him to bed until he poops and pees. Then, we take him outside every three hours. He has pooped in his...

  7. Housebreaking My 14 week Old Puppy.

    Dog Training Forum
    I've had my female pitbull/lab mix puppy for 4 weeks now and I had her mostly house broken after the first week, or so I thought. It was to the point she would go to the door and scratch at it, or paw at her leash that hangs on the coat hook next to the door. I thought this was GREAT! Well, now...
  8. Housebreaking Relapse?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi Everyone, just wondering if I can get some perspective on my 12 week old pup. Since getting Teddy 2 weeks ago, he's been such a sweet boy, only ever had one accident in the house, on his first day home. But, after our recent trip to the groomers, he's had three accident in two day. It's quite...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone, new to the forum, been lurking about for a while, and simply cannot find a post on my issue. When we first got our 10 week old puppy, we were completely prepared for crate training and house breaking. Although to our surprise, our puppy came pre-house broken. He has only had 1...
  10. Housetraining Questions.

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello Fidget is about 15 weeks old now. We have owned her about a month or so. She doesn't make many mistakes indoors now. Right now, sometimes she lets us know, sometimes she just pees without warning. She usually whines when she has to poo. One of our problems: she whines about ALOT of...
  11. Puppy seems oblivious to peeing

    Dog Training Forum
    My new toy aussie shepherd is about 15 weeks old and I can tell she is very smart. She picked up on going "potty" outside right away and even though we try to take her out every hour when we are home, she still is having problems inside. I used to have a Shih tzu and vaguely remember training...

    General Dog Forum
    Hey everyone! So, my girlfriend and I just got a Maltese. He's a rescue and he's 4 years old. He's very smart and we've been having great success with teaching all kinds of things. He sits, comes, stays (sometimes) and is quite obedient in general. The only problem is he keeps peeing in the...
  13. Puppy Potty Problems

    Dog Training Forum
    Our puppy Diesel is a 6 month old chocolate lab mix. He's such a well mannered puppy and very loving and playful. Since I am at home with him all day, we were able to potty train him in less than 2 weeks! I felt so lucky! He has always been really good about sniffing the door when he needs to...

  16. Silent in emergencies (housebreaking issue)

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 3 year old shepherd/husky(we think) mix who has, on occasion, a delicate stomach. She's housebroken, really, but when she just can't hold it, rather than whine to be let out, she'll run around frantically until it's too much and then find a corner to let go in. The main issue is that...
