    I've got to tell you the easy way to potty train a puppy is to have a pet door and an older dog to show the puppy how to use it!

    We have a doggy door except Fergus is too short to step out. I've seen him watch my lab go thru it so hopefully he will get to use it soon.

    Hi There! like everyone has said, Hang in there. Silias is still so young, he will get it. Doyou have any blankets or a bed in his crate? some have taken those out to help thier puppy not pee in the crate. keep the faith, he will learn. As far as the biting goes. he's a puppy, it does get better, Ike is almost 5 months, he is so much better about biting and mouthing. Sila's teeth are cutting in it hurts them, Same think you just went thru with your daughter. Some are using frozen green beans to help the teething pain, We used a rope toy that we got wet and froze, and another toy that was made to get wet and frozen.

    Keep strong, he will be the bully you are hoping for!

    He's also teething and nothing, not nylabones, kongs, his stuffies or any toys will distract him from our fingers and toes when he's on a mission to bite. I have so many puncture wounds on me I look pathetic.

    BUT- all of this will pass. They're puppies, that's really all it is. It takes time and patience. Hang in there.
    Jsut wait for the puppy teeth to be gone, when his adult teeth are coming in he will still be chompy and mouthing, but his teeth wont be as sharp!

    Is your baby's UTI all cleared up? if not, that will definitely be a contributing factor to the peeing. You got some very good advice above otherwise!

    I would try a metal grate for on the bottom of his crate so if he pees it doesn't get on his skin (It looks like an oven rack) I would also remove all blankets and towels out of his crate. Once he has urinated on them he may continue even after they have been laundered because of the scent he recognizes. Once he stops wetting in his crate you can put back the comfy blankets. These are tips from Olive's breeder and she had very few accidents in her crate. Hes very cute! Good Luck
    In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.

    please don't restrict water to only meals....dogs need access to water...when i got jameson as a puppy my vet told me(and he has had bulldogs) to never limit his water...that is really dangerous for him/her

    @Silastheman as others have said DO NOT restrict water from that puppy. That's one reason he got the UTI in the first place. Your skin kid did not learn to use the toilet over night and your baby bully will not learn to potty train over night. It takes time for their body to grow and their bladders to grow and in time they will be able to hold it longer and they also will learn to go out side. Set up a pin, you can by a plastic play pin for dogs at Petsmart or Petco and put his crate in there and leave the door open so he can sleep in his crate and go outside the crate to pee and poop. You can use puppy pads (but they like to play and chew them up) or use news paper for him to go on. Once he gets a little older you can do away with the play pin and shut the door at night. What we do is put a towel down and if the pee on them we just hose them off and then wash them. Once he gets about 6 months of age he should be able to sleep all night without incident. They still have accidents every once in awhile, but that's just pups. Be patient and he will learn as he gets older. We have a 7 month old at home and she does pretty well most of the time but will still sometimes pee on her towel. They are pups and it happens. Just remember, they are babies, just like your 19 month old, it takes time for them to learn, so please be patient with him. All they want to do is please us and be loved and will give you years of unconditional love in return.

    Plus, doggie doors are not a good idea for bullies, unless you are home all the time and can watch him all the time. They will go out to play and sun and can get too hot and may not come back inside and before you know it, you have a dead bully from heat stroke. It happens all the time, so be careful if you have one.

    he came to me with the UTI and vet said it was from poor food quailty from breeder and I do not restrict water, I offer him water all the time, just not before bed and I dont leave it out all day, But anytime he wants it, he sits nxt to his bowl and I fill it otherwise he will pee every 5 minutes.
