hello im having some trouble with my 8 week old bichi-poo male pup named bentley.. he seemed to be picking up on going potty on his potty pads and was doing a good job. really surprised he was taking it to it so quick. ( weve had him a week today) but he doesnt seem to go poop on the pad i find him going else where, is this normal? i catch him in the act and i pick him up and put him on his pad and praise him for going on the pad but the next time its a hit and miss kinda thing he might go one time on it and then the other few some where else.. but mostly he is going pee on the pad theres been a few accidents here and there but mostly because he wiggles off the pad and gets the end of the pad or next to it but i feel he is trying. but with pooping he doenst understand that he is also to go on the pad. i dont punish him in anyway is this what i should be doing i do tell him bad bentley and put him on the pad and tell him to go potty. but he is so young and this is the first pup ive had but it seemed potty training my children was easier..lol any advice you can give me would help . he does pretty well tho and im not crate training him as i was told he was to young. but he sleeps with me and my husband in bed and he sleeps threw the night with out peeing in bed which i was told was very surprising as he doesnt have bladder control that long usually 6 hours . so the litle guy seems to be trying but it gets fustrating to keep cleaning up his poop and not knowing why he isnt taking to the potty pad as he does with peeing? thanks and any help i would apprecaite.. theresa
Ok if you find him going poop on the floor or if you find poop on the floor do what you were doing and put him on the pad and tell him to go to the bathroom on that. When he starts going to the bathroom on the pad i mean once hes done, give him some kind of treat and tell them good boy/girl make sure he/she doesnt scratch up the pad if he/she does that tell him the same thing no no bad boy/girl. Because when i went out 1 night for a few hours. I came home to a torn up pad that was also only peeded on. so i guess it might be normal at first but you have to teach him/her. BYE
hello.. i do praise him for peeing on this pad and also the few times he has pooped on the pad. i just found that he pooped in the bathroom on my rug which seems to be his daily thing now. going on rugs in the house. this is very frusterating let me tell you. i will start giving him a treat when he goes on the pad and maybe this will do something. so hot dogs of coarse in small portions are ok? and alittle cheese? he doesnt care for the puppy treats or bones ive gotton him so really it isnt a big deal to him. so when he doesnt go on the pad do i do anything? or just clean it up and go obout my day? or do i get him and let him know hes done bad? ive been just letting him know im upset with him .. so will this work? thanks and i hope to hear from you. theresa

I was just reading this post and Toy Poodle, what on earth are you talking about??? Your techniques are very wrong. Never tap the nose or use any sort of aggression like that. Please let people read up on their own to find this out, or ask a trainer, or someone that has more experience.
I was only teasing with her in the beginning. We had all just gone thru a nite of trolling. Thought that might be what this was in the start. Did'nt mean to offend her or make her mad, I didn't realize she was just real young. It always sends up a red flag when people act like they know more than anyone else. Just ask me and I will tell you. I think that was how that came across in the start. Sorry if I teed anyone off.
