Hello.........I am new here and we just got a puppy (17 weeks) about a week ago. We are becoming frustrated in the potty training department. I was wondering if anyone one would be willing to give us some ideas of a schedule for her age that we could go by? Like for example.........I know to take her out when she gets up, after she eats, after playtime etc..........but what we are wanting to know is at her age.........how long after she eats do we take her out, how long do we allow play time, how often should she be out of her crate, we are all getting frustrated.......we take her out and she just site there..........how long do we stay out with her if she doesn't go and then do we just put her back in her crate if she doesn't go? This is all very new for us as we had older dog before and didn't have these issues.
So we need help........we are tired and just plain worn out.
Potty training is the most important thing a puppy learns in a new home so I advise everyone to get on a schedule!! Schedule everything: bed time, wake up time, feeding times, walks, and excercise times, yep EVERYTHING. now the good news is that you won't have to keep up a rigorous schedule forever, just temporarily while the puppy learns what you want. Soon you will know how long after that meal she "goes", and whether she does #1 and #2 each morning, and many more details of the way your particular puppy's body works. If you need to share the care with a spouse or family member, a log-sheet might help to keep everyone doing the same thing. I also advise crate training and tethering a new puppy. And at no time does any puppy have freedom or "free run" in the house until I am certain of their reliability on potty training. that means babygates, leashes, closed doors and CONSTANT SUPERVSION. I also recommend rewarding good potty behavior. Every time they potty in the right place, make a big deal of it! Use a very special, very tasty treat that they get only when they potty outside. All these things combined will get you started off right. You can also pm me with other questions if you want. I have successfully house-trained MANY puppies
I have an 8 week old Boston Terrier pup. I have had her for two weeks and have been consistant in housebreaking her. I feed her at 6 am and 6 pm. Right after she eats I put her back in her kennel for about 20-25 minutes, but she won't poop when I take her out, only pee. It takes her a good 2-3 hours to poop. This means she is doing it in her crate at night cuz she doesn't bark or wine to go out!The crazy thing is she won't pee in her crate, only poop! She will cry or wine and when I get up to take her out, she has pooped but not peed! She also jumps all over it and makes a huge mess. I have had to give her three 5 am bathes this week and I am at the end of my wits! Any help would really be appreciated!!!
I am house breaking and crate training a 14 week old pit puppy and have received help on those issues from other users on this site. Patience and consistency seem to be the best things you can do. I would suggest fail-proof supervision for the time after meals. I personally put my puppy back in her crate for about 45-60 minutes now (she usually seems to need to go at that point) then promptly take her out to do her business. while outside I give her about 5-10 minutes. If she does not go I bring her back in, put her back in the crate, wait ten minutes and try again till she does go, and praise her like crazy when she does. It seems to be working so far. Also, I was told by my vet and other sources that feeding a puppy 3 times a day is the best option. Your pup may not need to go because she doesn't have much in her system. Good luck with her though!
i think you does not take care of it carefully check by your vet if you can not handle this than contact your pet trainer....i recommend you study about your dog profile through internet and find out your dog problems.....
