I have a 5 month old yorkie female. It's been a month since we got her and she still has accidents at home even after we have taken her out to potty, not immediately afte but about 1 hour after we have left her hanging out at the house. Any suggestions?
My Yorkie is now a little over 1 year old, but we got her at 3 months old and since I am not working any more, EVERY time she woke up from a nap, I took her out. It was pretty detailed because they take a lot of naps!!! She was trained in approximately 2 months. We put her to bed in a separate room at night away from everyone & everything in the house and used puppy pads and she was real good about using them, but she didn't use them that much. The trick is really to catch her right away and take her out. She will get to know really fast that that's what she's supposed to do. These dogs are very very smart and catch on to everything. Good Luck. Let us know how your puppy's doing.
I didn't puppy pad my Yorkie. I am now crate training my Yorkie boy. He is now 4 months old and is doing extremely well. I started crate training at 3 months and he is now able to 'hold it' for several hours. I would suggest doing some online research into crate training. Puppy pads, however, are good if you are not able to be at home for extended periods of time. Luckily for me, there is someone at home with my dog about 90% of the time!
Hi, I have a Minnie Yorkie at the time and have had many small breeds in the past. Crate training and keeping the puppies on a schedule is the only way that seemed to have worked for me. Using potty pads in the house in my opinion is teaching them that it is ok to potty in the home. I use potty pads ONLY in part of the crate and have laid them in a small area of the yard. They have all learned to only potty in the crate and one part of he yard. It has made things so much easier for us! Hope this helps.
I just got my first Yorkie puppy last night. He is 8 weeks old and I bought a large crate and have put down puppy pads. My wife and I work 40 hours + per week. There is nobody going to be with him during the day. What suggestions does anyone have regarding getting him house trained with us not being there during the day???
I forgot to add in my post earler that there is a product out there called: BRAND: Simple Solution.....PRODUCT: Potty Training Aid. Your just spray this on the pee pad and it really does work wonders. Don't know what it is, but I had immediate succdess... Good Luck.
Puppie pads also known as pee pads can be found in your local pet store. They're very common, so you won't have any trouble finding them. They are about 2 feet square and are like plastic on the bottom and have an absorbant pad on top that soaks up the urine. There is also a product that we used ours was a puppy until she got used to them called "Potty Training Aid". You just spray it on the pad and somehow it attracts them to use it. Good luck. We had instant luck with ours when she was a puppy.
I have a 12week old female yorkie, and am having some problems with potty training/crating. I may be confusing her. I work full time days. I get up and have 2 hours with her in the mornings where she eats, potties and plays. I then put her in a play pen that has her little bed, food & water, pee pad and toys. When I get home I let her out to eat,play,cuddle & potty. Her play pen is off the ground so she can not get to it to potty, so I have another pee pad in the hallway for her to use when she is out of play pen, but sometimes she uses it and sometimes she wont. How do I reinforce the pee pad in the hall way? She always uses the pad in her play pen,why not the one in the hall? She is crated during the night and usually gets up twice to be taken to pee pad. Any suggestions?
