messing inn the hous help

Hi everyone

The recommendations I gave there would apply here as well. I would start over with potty training.

And it probably isn't that he knows he's doing something wrong, he just couldn't get your attention quickly enough to go out. He's just a puppy and isn't able to hold it for long periods, especially being a small breed.

As for the negative reinforcement of putting his nose in it, aside from being just plain mean, all that does is teach him it's a bad idea to potty in your presence rather than in the house. It could actually make the problem worse if he won't go for you at all, in or out.

I just want to say that yelling at him and him running to the door is him responding to your negativity (body language included) but he doesn't actually associate it with the potty in the house. Your best to ignore bad things and praise the good (like when he goes outside). It's like when you see that your dog has ripped something up while you at work...when you see it your whole body language changes and the dog reads that and runs away and hides, knowing you are really cranky...but they don't think 'she's mad cause I ripped up ............. they just know you are mad'
You'll get a better response if you praise the good things and ignore the bad...all dogs want to please their owners and if they know something is good, they'll generally do that instead of the things they get ignored for. It makes for a much happier dog too!!!

Hi
Thanx for your reply.
I have never stuck his nose into his mess and I do not yell at him,I just thought i'd say that because it sounds like you guys think I do this sort of stuff.I love my puppy
Ok so I will prais him when he is behaving good and ignore him when he is behaving bad.
Jade thanx for the link.
Sorry if I have offended someone,I didn't mean to I just don't like people thinking I am horrible to my puppy.

Don't fret your little puppy will learn. It just requires time and you being consistant. My last boy I had from a puppy and he was about 6 months before the occassional accident in the house stopped and he was almost a year before he could go all night, every night without my taking him out for a potty or two (or three or four or five depending on his age and how long I was in bed). Sometimes I'd be in bed 10 hours and it felt like I hadn't even been there getting up every 2-4 hours to let the puppy out.

In a year you will look back on these moments I am sure and smile. I still think fondly (in a strange way) of puppy messes even though I am glad I am not dealing with it with my new boy.

Your welcome....hang in there, because we have surely had our share of housebreaking puppies and even full grown dogs and it is never an easy task!!!

I just want to say I was not trying to have a go at you or anything like that. I never questioned the love you have for your puppy. However I mentioned the yelling thing because you did post this.....

You said yourself that you shout at him, why would I think otherwise? And I still wasn't having a go at you, I was just trying to explain that him running to the door is probably more associated with him reading your body language and listening to you and knowing that you are mad rather than him knowing that going to the toilet inside is a no no....once he understands that concept you will have yourself a toilet trained dog. Like I said before, dogs prefer to please their owners. I'm glad you are going to praise the good and ignore the bad though

ok saying his name with a no followed is fine As long as you are confident when you do it, and not angry. I'm glad he didn't mess in the house all day!!! That's a great sign! He still could give you mishaps along the way, but he'll get there soon I'm sure!
