    Crate training was the only thing that helped house break Meatball. He is almost 4 and if we don't crate him while we are out he will still pee in house usually on a couch, blanket, or pillow. If we are home? No problem at all. I swear Meatball does it out of spite. He HATES being alone!!! Makes him very destructive and anxious. So definitely try crating

    +1 for Crate Training. It is the most effective way to protect them and your belongings. We started Jupiter in the crate from the moment we picked her up and she has no problems with it at all. She actually has multiple crates right now One that she sleeps in at night which is smaller and her larger one where she stays when we are out or we are feeding the pack.

    How old is she? honestly my wide and I were in the same boat with Ella but one day she was just trained. Now she never has an accident. We do kennel her when we are not at home. But in the beginning it was very hard to potty train her. I have to give credit to my wife mostly because she took Ella out all the time in the beginning.

    Dont give up keep at it. I bet she will get better

    There is irony in your current ranking of "potty trainer" and the thread topic.

    Nope...not giving you a pass, Cody, to complain or be frustrated with Diamond.

    Sounds like she's had a hard life, neglected and with lots of physical problems
    and maybe, mental ones. AND...she's in a new place, new people and probably
    never potty trained. Did you really expect miracles?

    There are excellent articles under Forums & these kind members will be sharing
    their helpful training tips so CHILL and work patiently, kindly & calmly with her.
    I'm amazed that Diamond is doing even half as great as she is, especially as she's
    a bulldog, not feeling well, etc. Count your lucky stars!

    I'll share my tips too but am just too damned sad for several losses this week of
    my friends here, I love these bullies almost as if they were mine and know how
    deeply these dear friends & families are hurting.

    Diamond is doing a wonderful job of dealing with so much and all at once. Please
    honor her and give her credit, nothing comes easy or overnight.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I'm not sure how house broken Betty was in her previous house. We have a shaggy rug in our living room which she kept peeing on, I think she thinks it looks like grass (we visited friends with her who have the same rug in a different colour and she did the same thing!). We've covered it with her blanket now which helps. When we're out she stays in our kitchen with her crate in with her and she hasn't ever had an accident in there. But yesterday morning she decided to pee on her blanket in the middle of the living room even though she'd been for a walk an hour before and peed twice! She doesn't really ask to go outside so we just take her out every couple of hours and see if she has to go, then if she does, lots of praise. It's frustrating, but it's just one of those things, worse things than cleaning a bit of dog pee I suppose! I would get cleaner specifically for pet stains that has enzymes in it so that Diamond can't smell where's she's gone before.
