    Default Potty training Brooklyn.. Almost 12 weeks old.

    Hi guys...sorry we have been MIA!!!! It is like a full time job raising Brooklyn!!! We have one major question... And I know every bulldog is different. Brooklyn will be 12 weeks old tomorrow (Thursday). We will have had him for 4 weeks then. When we bring him outside to do his business, he always does..... But he still has accidents at least once or twice a day...on the floor or even on MY bed! But when I come home from work to let him out, he runs to the door to go outside and goes immediately! So it is like he knows....but half the time he just goes on the floor on his terms!?!?!?! I'm getting discouraged because people are telling me he should be long trained by now is this normal? When will he get it??? I don't "mind" necessarily that he has accidents here and there....I just wish he would signal me or something. Is there a certain age that he should "get it" by?! Please help. I am getting very worried. I don't want a 2 year old grown bulldog peeing and pooping on the floor and bed!
    Thanks for any help.

    Other than that..... I have never been happier with him!!! He's so amazing and gorgeous

    Sounds like Brooklyn is almost there. Try this..... when he has an accident in the house, do not scold him as much as you scold the mess..... freak out about it. Act like it is the end of the world, and then show him the mess and tell him no, all the while focusing your distraught over the mess itself. Sometimes they need to know how much YOU don't like the mess, and then immediately take him out. Also give him a treat whenever he goes potty outside. He will understand quickly that each time he goes outside he will get a reward. A healthy one tho! No pupperonis or gross cheap treats! Then he will get the !!!! He is only 12 weeks old, he does not have full control over his system yet, and sometimes activity & excitement, running and playing, ect. can make him just need to go.

    Twelve weeks is still young. It sounds like he's just about there. No worries.

    I have heard some have real good luck by adding a string of bells on their door and teaching them to paw the chimes to let you know they need to go out.

    I have only had Millie for about 5 months. She was 9 months when I got her. I have the bells on the door and she doesn't use them. She sits at the door and waits, but if I am busy elsewhere in the house and can't see that she is sitting at the door, she will eventually just go somewhere else and potty. How do I teach her to alert that she has to potty?

    @TomnZon I'min the same boat as you. Having a hard time
    with Jozi. She will be 12 week tomorrow. She knows go outside
    but just decides to do it in the house for some reason. I think that
    I'm going to giver her free time for a few hours in the house. Then
    after 3, 3 1/2 hours She is going back in her crate. Spend a little
    time in there and then outside to potty. Hopefully this will work.

    Try to stay positive. I know as well as anyone right now how hard
    it is. But we have to for our Bullies sake. Good luck with the
    potty training let me know if anything works for you. I might have
    to try it too.

    I am having the same issue with Guinness. He will be in his crate for 8-9 hours and will not go and as soon as I take him out of the crate I pick him up and bring him outside and bam bathroom. But when we are in the house he will not motion at all when he has to go and will just go on the floor. If it wasn't for me just bringing him out every 45min-1hour he would just go on the floor. I need to get him to go to the door or bark or something to let us know he needs to go

    Same here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!all day and all night in his crate, he doesn't go!! I take him out..he goes! But if we are playing or just hanging.... He will just walk onto my comforter and pee... Or just pee or poop on the floor! I say NO and kind of put his face in it so he knows what I am saying no to. But he clearly doesn't know that he is wring. I do reward him every single time he goes outside. But I don't think he comprehends...... I know he is still a baby..but like I said- people are telling me he should be trained by and he is nowhere near trained so I am worried I think I am doing everything right ????

    Guiness- we need a plan!!!!!

    carolina pet pantry has a huge selection of treats that are good for bullies. I always go grain free, and they have the fruitables too, which my bullies LOVE. Other than that, you can give frozen green beans, fruit, carrots, ect.

    I don't think there is a "definite" cut-off point for when a puppy should be house-trained. It really is individual to every puppy .. although I have heard that english bulldogs can take a little longer to train.
