My puppy was ripping up the wee wee pads but now that I bought the wee wee pad holder, I'm not having any problems with her tearing it. HOWEVER now she just goes potty anywhere she wants. I don't know what the deal is and I honestly feel like I'm going to kill her! (not literally but seriously I'm at wits end!) She was so well trained on the wee wee pad, and now it seems that she has totally forgotten how. The odd thing is, she urinates on it quite often and every now and then goes on the carpet- plus for her fesces, she ALWAYS goes on my carpet now. Like once a day, she'll go on the wee wee pad but the rest of the time, without warning she'll just go doodie in the hallway carpet or the office or wherever she wants. I even keep her in the same room with me but she gives me no warning, just will walk behind my back as I'm on the computer or washing dishes or whatever and she'll just go doodie with no warning.
It's driving me mad and I seriously don't get what the problem is. HELP!!!! What am I doing wrong??!!!
Ok I have never been a fan of the puppy pads, it's like having to train your dog twice.
If your dog is having accidents, keep her on a leash, you can tie it to your waist loops, keep it on your wrist or I even sometimes just put the handle loop around my ankle. When you are not home keep her in a crate. Dogs do not like to do their business in their personal space.
She is a pup so her bladder is small. Take her outside frequently. I take Khan out every hour. After they eat they should go out usually about 15-30 mins after they finished their meal. Limit her water at night time.
When you take her outside use a keyword, I use "Go Potty" and when she goes tell her Good Girl, praise her a lot! Hope this helps!
Hi- First rule out a urinary tract infection w/your Vet. If that is not it, then tether the dog to you. Literally, attach her leash to your belt, and to her- and do not ever let her out of your sight. Also, retrain her as to EXACTLY where you want her to "GO",- the new holder may be throwing her off. Be very diligent about this, and in a short time she will be back on track. Of course, remember that dogs cannot tell the difference between a pee pad and the Persian rug!
