    Default Potty Help

    Good Morning EBN Family!!

    Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

    Ok - SOOOO, Ellie is 8 mos old, and we are still struggling a little bit with her house-training.

    Today mama tried to take a QUICK shower this AM, as I was LAZY and didn't to take it last night as I normally do, SOOOO I poked my head around the shower curtain, and caught her in the act of squatting and peeing on my bedroom floor

    She IS crate-trained and go up to 7 hours without messing her crate during the day, she also at night time, does sleep in our bed, and HOLDS it 7-8 hours, but the waking hours while we are home, she may only go 1.5 hours TOPS and if we are not right on top of her will have accidents.

    We HAVE done all the following training, taking her out every hour, treats and praise as soon as she does her business outside, we even tried the potty bells.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it but she does not pace her water intake, sometimes she will have little drink, and sometimes she have almost a WHOLE bowl

    Mama is feeling defeated today!!

    Is she just being a stubborn bully or does mommy need to step up her game??

    HELP!!


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    I think it's OK that she's not fully potty trained just yet... it is hard with bulldogs Does she at all show signs of wanting to go out before she does her business inside, or does he just go where she likes?

    Is it possible that she's got an UTI? I'm asking cos our basset did kind of the same, she would be able to hold all night and never peed inside when the door was opened but if the door was closed she would go inside. I never saw here squat often but one day she peed every 5 minutes so we got a shot for UTI and after that she's only peed inside once. She's now 6 months old.

    I think it's just a matter of still needing some time. You said she kind of binge drinks...is there a pattern to it? After eating dinner or a particular treat?

    Fezzik was awful/stubborn with potty training. He would go potty outside, but if he had to go while inside he wouldn't let us know and would have accidents up to 9 months. We finally have a system where he barks to go out. Just keep in there.

    Extremely normal behavior unfortunately... I think that all bullies regress at some point. Willow is 8 mos and w/all these stupid fireworks going off, I found out yesterday she has peed in on our bedroom carpet. Sigh... Lol

    With Biscuit I just made sure if I couldn't 100% watch her that she was either outside, in her crate or on a leash right beside me. But honestly I think it is just the dog, she was the easiest of all of mine to train. She sounds like she is almost there!
