  1. Potty training help

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog is an 8 month dog old golden retriever and he will only poop in a certain place a certain way far from my apartment. He will only go poop if he is off leash and in the complex dog park. I want him to be able to go wherever outside or at least on command. How do I get him out of the habit...
  2. It feels like my puppy is not making any progress when it comes to potty training

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi, My boyfriend and I adopted a 3 months old chihuahua almost two weeks ago and although he's been potty trained by the breeder he seems to have more and more accidents. At first, he was peeing and pooing on the pad, but for couple of days he's been doing his needs all over the house. He...
  3. won't pee in usual spot due to rain/morning dew!

    Dog Training Forum
    My 13 month old Newfie has stopped using her gravel area in the back yard with recent rains and even if it's not raining but the gravel is moist due to dew, she'll refuse to walk on it, and will just look at me when I use her "hurry up" command. If put out on her own, she will go elsewhere in...
  4. Having trouble with my 12 wk old pup..

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I brought home Stella - a mini poodle - on 9/18 and she is great. My problem is that when we take her out to use the bathroom (upon waking, after feeding, randomly throughout the day) she is not going! She will run all over the place and then when I stand and ignore her, she just sits quietly...
  5. 10 Week Lab/Husky Puppy needs help!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We recently adopted a 8 week old lab/husky puppy (now 10 weeks). Things got a little complicated right after since we found out the old owners lied to us about their 1st shots, and on top of that the poor thing had worms and vaginitis. She's doing a lot better after being in our care and she's a...

  7. Shiba Potty Training Conundrum

    Dog Training Forum
    I just brought home a Shiba Inu puppy from a breeder who was letting him pee on mats very similar to carpet, on a carpeted area (meaning he was probably peeing wherever he wanted). I'm trying to get him to use regular paper puppy pads, but he sees them as toys and chews on them. This is his...

  11. Why would I need a Piddle Place indoor dog toilet

    Piddle Place
    I thank you again for allowing me to share this with you. The concept of an indoor dog potty was unheard of a few years ago. In that past, we were told that we needed to control and master our dogs. For many of us, that old adage has disappeared. My dog, Kippers, is part of my family. I...
  12. Help! Going crazy with training/comforting while puppy is in heat

    General Dog Forum
    Perrin went into heat earlier than I expected (she is 6 months, so I guess that isn't actually early). I decided to let her have two heats or reach 1.5 years old (whichever came first) before spaying her, and the vet agreed. I am super responsible (okay, maybe it is more appropriate to say...
  13. Puppy Obsessed with Potty Spot

    Dog Training Forum
    Sorry for posting a potty thread, I just couldn't find any info in the search and I'm desperate! Potty training has been going great (crate training), but I hit a totally unexpected snag! My 16 week old puppy will not go outside of her potty spot! She has gone outside in our backyard since 8...
  14. 4 month old puppy peeing clear yellow urine a LOT

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello! I have a 4 month old puppy, and I'm concerned about her peeing patterns. She was treated for a UTI a month or two ago (though they didn't actually take any samples to test because her bladder was empty) and it came back negative when they checked to see if it was gone. She pees a LOT...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hey all! New to the forums but I believe everything should be in order in terms of following the posting guidelines? If not, let me know! My Pembroke Welsh Corgi is 6 months old and I feed him the Wellness grain-free puppy food twice a day, 1 cup each feeding. After each feeding, he poops twice...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have female pitbull who is about a year old now. My husband has been working out of town for the past 3 weeks and probably won't be home for at least 2 more. Usually he is the one that takes her outside for potty breaks when he's in town- but since he's not here Ive been doing it. She will NOT...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, all. We have an 8 month old Shih-Tzu who is still pooping in the house. In fact, he'll go outside to pee and poop within 10 minutes after he's back inside. Wondering what we can do to fix this. A little more info: ~ He seems to not like grass in general. We got him over Christmas and he...
  18. Potty.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    At what age should I start house-breaking/potty training my puppy? My roommate suggests I start potty training him, and punishing (I don't 'punish' my pets) him for his teething right now, at only six weeks. I feel like he's not ready, especially because six weeks is a bit early to be taken from...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions

I've been taking him out every 2 hours (I usually stop water intake at about 7pm; we go to bed...
  20. Puppy outsmarting me in potty training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! I just adopted (week ago) a Pomeranian/Pekingese 10 week old rescue puppy. He is too smart for his (well, mine!) own good and has caught on quickly. He gets the potty training thing and realizes that when I take him outside he has to go potty. It's still rainy/snowy/generally icky out...
