    Default Dirty phase??? WTH

    Ellie will be 10 months on the 18th of this month and she has begun having accidents just about every day. Now I stay home at the moment and am usually home. I only leave the house for a few hours a day (take kids to school and do some running around.) Not quite sure what to do differently- I'm constantly watching her but just as I think all is well..... I find an accident. Is this normal???? Any suggestions would be great. I think we will be done having my cuddle bug in bed for the time being....

    I dont know about normal. Is Ellie crate trained? That seems to help some a lot. When Matilda would have "accidents" she would go into time out.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    We got her when she was 12 weeks and they were working with her, and then we began crate training with a very small crate (she has kind of out grown it) but then I was laid off shortly after so I have just been working with her. I watch her like a hawk so this surprises me. I think I need to put her back in a smaller kennel.

    Ellie is adorable, by the way.

    Yeah...just back up a few steps in the potty training and carry on as usual. If you're home with her and she's having accidents, you're not watching her closely enough. Get out the leash and tie her to your leg if you must and stay on a strict schedule for eat/potty/play/potty/sleep/potty - just like when she was a wee lass. She'll be back on track in no time!

    You know my female Karly will not go potty outside - she's a little diva and must go indoors on soft things like rugs pads or towels even. I just usually lay something down for her to use it on because she'll usually go in doorways but I do put them out and only Nigel will go take care of business. She'll walk around but won't go until she's back indoors. Good luck!


    Cheerio mates!

    Is there any possibility that she's got a UTI or something that would cause her to piddle without the ability to control it? Or is it a poo accident?

    Good luck with her, she's adorable!

    It's #2 only. And she has gone in her kennel too.

    Oh...I see. Well...in that case I agree with the others. Just start the potty training routine over again. She will get it.

    I'd go back to the smaller kennel. Sorry, I know starting over sucks but its looking like that's what you're going to have to do

    She's hitting adolescence....or I like to call it their version of the Terrible Twos.

    Guinness backslid a bit around that age. Had some accidents in the house, and did some naughty things that she didn't usually do. She outgrew it quickly enough.

    Like others said, I would take a step back with the house training.

    Good luck!

    I too was going to suggest a UTI until you said it was #2s only!!

    Unfortunately, it does sometimes feel as if you are taking two steps forward and one step back!!!
