    Default Puppy potty training

    Hello Everyone...so I am new this wonderful site and a brand new owner of my first English Bulldog baby boy....his name is Tank. He has been so wonderful and such an awesome puppy. We are struggling in the potty training department though. He is constantly peeing in his crate even though he only has enough room to sleep in it. He also will be outside, use the restroom, and then the minute he comes in he uses the restroom inside as well. We are a tad frustrated because we see how well he is doing and now we are looking for some type of ideas or tips to help us out....anyone have anything they can share???

    Hi Tanks mommy
    If he is peeing more then normal and can't seem to hold it you might have him checked for a infection. They can be very prone to blader infections. I hope this helps you out some

    We are struggling with that too... Belly is 4 months old and won't sleep through the night ..usually has me up to take her out at 11,2 and 4 am... She used to sleep through the night... we are gone 10 hours a day for work also... it's our own fault..wish sometimes we were on opposite shifts to get her out more often.

    Welcome to the board. I hope we can see photos soon

    I will be of no help on the potty training issue. I didn't use crate training, I just take him out constantly. Now even at 1 yr old he decided to start hiking up and marking so I have to watch him constantly.
    You will get plenty of great advice here. Can't wait to see your baby.
    I didn't do it

    I am glad I am finding that people are going through the same things we are. I know that things will get better and I am practicing patience I have his Dr.s appointment today for his shots and I will ask Dr. Butchko if Tank may have a bladder infection. I notice that when he does go outside and then come inside, when he is going to the bathroom inside it is a couple of drops and not alot like when he goes outside. I will let you guys know how the appt. goes. I will also get some pics up soon!!

    Patience is the key even though it is VERY frustrating!!

    Daddy took a good 5 - 6 months before he really understood that going inside the house and inside his crate was a bad thing. For the first 3-4 months he used to poop in his crate too and we would come home to a poop-covered bully ....

    Even now if he has been playing a lot he will run to the door and can leave a little pee trail behind him because he has left it a little too late. Thank goodness for wooden floors!!!

    Weeeeeeeeeell................6 years later...........Duke has never had any accidents. Why?............because he let's me know..........even if it is 2:00am......I still get up and let him out. It's part of the commitment and love. What I found to help in the begining was taking him out for walks. Telling him what a good boy he was when he finished his muffin missions. Bulldogs eat praise up.......and they're dieing to please you to get it. So make it work for you while you do your bonding together.

    We added a bit of a twist on crate training... I was afraid of Moe experiencing, thus potentially accepting that it is OK to potty in the crate, so we added a baby playpen gate around his crate, and provided a puppy pee pad. This gave him the option of peeing out of his crate without messing in the house if he just had to go. We started by waking up in the middle of the night to take him out, and praising him for the dry floor, or acting sad if there was a mess. It really did not take him long to figure out what we wanted. We were able to extend the time before we woke up to take him out until we eventually were able to sleep all night. We still had some accidents in the house when we let him run around, but a big turning point was catching him as he started to squat... I yelled at him and rushed him outside. I felt bad for scaring him, but I made an impression that worked. We no longer need the pee pad in his crate area as he is able to hold it, and he now goes to the front door to be let out if he is out of his crate area. We don't trust him enough yet to leave him out of his crate while we are gone, but with his progress he'll earn it soon.

    Since we have had Bulldogs we have always had an older dog & cat and a pet door and have not had more than 10 pees & poops in the house per puppy. The puppy would follow the older dog and/or cat outside and caught on real fast.

    Chaos still has accidents too and it is frustrating. He is getting alot better, I think its time and as he grows he is able to hold it longer. The last few days we have come home to a clean kennel!! Now at night is mostly when we have our problems. He wakes up dont cry and sometimes just pees or poos and we wake up to a pee or poopy .
