I have two dachshunds (both males) one is two, the other is 6. Both have been housebroken since puppy-hood. (with the exception of Max's challenging my husband by marking the bed) he's not neutered.
On Saturday we aquired a third Dachshund. Another male, who is neutered and 2 yrs old. I don't know much about his background prior to getting him. He was an owner surrender due to financial problems. (MIL has rescue and was contacted by the owner) We made a quick exchange at my work and that was the end.
So I bring Sonnie home, the kids (both girls 7 and 4) love hime, and the other weenies love him too. Problem is.... he is obviously NOT housebroken. he will go outside and sit and cry at the end of the leash, we come inside and 10 minutes later he potties on the carpet! ACK! I usually can catch him midstream and take him out, where he stands and cries. I could walk him around the yard for 45 minutes and never get results (that I want). I really would hate to cage him, but if I have to I will. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me? Right now instead of keeping him leashed to me he is confined to the common living space where I can see him no matter what, it's not a matter of catching and redirecting him, it's getting him to go outside at all.
I ad a little dog that was just like your dog we had to try potty pads for the longest time have you tried those yet? if that dont work let him know he cant come in till bussness is done let him stay out and just tell him no when he howls it worked on my snauzer mix.
Not all the bully breeds are mean.Dont let them band our babys,They are lovable family members.
I have a similar dog with a similar problem! He's a 1 year old dachshund mix. He will pee on his walk and come home to pee on the floor! So I've been doing a lot of research on this. Make sure you walk him frequently, and give him a treat when he goes outside. I asked a friend how she potty trained her adult dog and she said she took him out 10 times a day, and watched him. I take my dog out any time he starts to sniff at the floor and keep him in the room with me. Is he crate trained? A friend of mine said she house broke her adult dog by feeding him, crating him for 2 hours, then walking him. She said a trainer recommended it to her and it did the trick when nothing else would.
