  2. Puppy does not let us know she needs to go outside

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Our 10 weeks old husky knows that peeing in house is bad. We have established that by saying "NO" with a loud voice. She has successfully learned that ringing the bell means she can go outside but she prefers to go out to catch some bugs by the glass door. We have been constantly rewarding her...

  10. Puppy refuses to use pee pad

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog is an 11 week old Chihuahua. It's too cold outside for my Chihuahua to go outside where I live so we are trying to use a pee pad. He was using a pee pad at the breeder's before we got him, but now he won't even walk on it. We first tried bringing him there everytime after he'd eat...

    I live in New Zealand and it has come to my attention that there is a female 2 or 3 year old newfie that the owner wants to sell, as she has 3 of them and they are too much.

    So sometime within the last two months my two year old toy Aussie has started neglecting his house training. He is usually left around 8 hours a day but there are occasional days it is longer.

  20. How to teach an elderly dog it's OK to go inside????

    Dog Health Questions
    My problem is the exact opposite of most, I WANT my dog to know it's ok to go inside the house. I'm gone all day for work, there isn't anyone to let my aging dog out, neighbors are not an option, I can't afford off-site day care or the cost of having someone come by and let him out. Before I...
