    Default How do discipline or train your puppy not to pee indoors

    Hello everyone. My puppy is a bit over 4 months now. He knows or holds it when it comes to going number 2 indoors but when it comes to peeing, he just doesn't get it. I know he is young. Possibly small bladder and maybe cannot quite hold it yet but I know he doesn't go in his crate. He sleeps in a crate at night. I take him outside 8 times daily and then when we come in he gulps down a bunch of water. About a half an hour to an hour after that I can see sometimes that he will loose intrest in whatever he is doing ( chewing on a toy) and I can rush him outside. I praise him when he goes outdoors. I even started bringing him broken peices of cheese and giving it to him when praising him after going outdoors. When I do catch him peeing on the carpet/ tile I tell him BAD in a loud voice. BAD DOG. He knows something is wrong. I really let him know. I try not to pay attention to him for 20 mins depending what is happening. I would like to know anyones experience in training . I do not like to keep him in his crate in the daytime unless I am doing something where I cannot observe him or when he naps, I put him in. My older brother tells me puppys have lots of acciedents and 6 months is usually when they become house trained. Any advice. shared experience will be appreicated. Thanks Hero

    Yep, your brother is right. He's only 4 months, just keep telling him NO when he has an accident. Everything just 'clicked' one day with my dog when he was about 5 months. He's just turned 6 months now and there have been no accidents in many weeks. Also, the last few incidents were not accidents, he was deliberately peeing - like marking his territory. I told him that was a no-no and he stopped doing it. So you just have to figure out what's an accident and what is marking.

    I also think that my dog enjoys his independence and trust that I give him. If I tell him "let's go outside" or "let's go pee pee" and he resists or just doesnt get up to go, then I just leave him alone and trust his decision. If I tell him "let's go pee pee" and he comes willingly, then I know he really needs to go and I take him. If he starts attacking me relentlessly and not backing off, he's training me to know that he REALLY needs to go NOW LOL (he is still training me on this).

    Stay consistent and have lots of patience. They all 'get it' at different paces. Wilson caught on early - he was 4 months and could hold it over 10 hours. Emma, well she took a lot longer! She finally got it at around 6.5 months. She'll still have an occasional mishap.

    Do not scold your guy as all that will teach him is to hide it from you. Good luck! It's not easy at times lol.

    Ps..I'm going to move this to the training/behavioral section.

    Lola will be 12 weeks on monday and she has just learned to sleep through the night from 10pm to 6am without waking up or having accidents. She also holds it well during the day but she still has accidents if I dont watch. She is getting better with age but I think every dog gets it at different stages and I think some of it is personality. I hope he gets better soon!

    Here's an article that I found to be helpful to me. I hope it helps you! The best advice I can give anyone house training a puppy is this: set them up for success. The fewer accidents you have, the more quickly your dog will be house trained and all that takes is vigilance and consistency from the human! Tie the dog to your leg with a leash if you must. If your dog isn't getting it -- it's not his fault; it's yours. (And I mean that in the most loving way possible!)

    Housebreaking Your Puppy: Do's and Don'ts

    By Cesar Millan

    The process of housebreaking often brings on feelings of nervousness and worry, but the process does not have to be stressful—for you or the puppy.

    The truth is this is a situation in which you have Mother Nature working with you right from the start while puppy training. When the puppies are first born, they eat and they relieve themselves inside the den, but the mother always cleans them. There is never a scent of urine or feces where the puppies eat, sleep, and live. When they get old enough, they learn to use outside areas as they imitate their mother.

    In this way, all dogs become conditioned never to eliminate in their dens. From two to four months of age, most pups pick up on the concept of housebreaking and crate training quite easily since it is part of their natural programming.

    Another built-in plus when it comes to housebreaking is our puppy’s digestive tract, which is extremely quick and efficient. Five to 30 minutes after the puppy eats, she’ll want to defecate. So with a consistent eating schedule, and your attention to the clock, your puppy can maintain regular trips outside.

    In the early days of housebreaking, you also want to make sure the puppy has a place to relieve herself where she feels safe; a place that seems and smells familiar. Have you noticed how dogs will often eliminate in the very same spot they’ve done so before? The scent acts like a trigger.

    As always, remember that your own energy is a big factor in your housebreaking efforts. If you are feeling nervous or impatient or are trying to rush a puppy to relieve herself, that can also stress her out. Using a loud, high squeaky tone to encourage your puppy to “go potty” is a distraction to the dog, so try and avoid any conversation at all.

    First thing every morning, bring your puppy outside to the same general area. It is important to remain consistent throughout the process so your puppy can learn the habit.

    Once your puppy has successfully gone outside, it is important to reward the good behavior. It doesn’t have to be a big, loud celebration, but a simple quiet approval or a treat can get the message across of a job well done.

    Don’t punish your puppy for an accident or do anything to create a negative association with her bodily functions. Stay calm and assertive and quietly remove the puppy to the place where you want him to go.

    Done correctly, housebreaking should not be a turbulent production but just a matter of putting a little extra work into getting your puppy on a schedule during the first weeks after she arrives at your home. Don’t let unnecessary stress over this very natural, uncomplicated process taint any of the joy surrounding the puppy training process and your new dog’s puppyhood.

    Well. I am having a hard time. at times. lol with Buddy. When we go outdoors . sometimes he moves soooo slow. Sometimes he will just sit his butt down and I tug on the leash ( retractable but with a stop button) and have to actually go to him and lift his body up which I use a harness instead of collar to get his butt moving. If he see's another dog or person outside where I live ( condo ) he will run up to whoever and either play with the other dog or puppy or if its a person ( who pats him) he will not want to leave with me until that person or dog is out of sight.. He will just watch them as I am sayiing COME ON BUDDY . It is embarrasing. I do not know if he is stubborn. testing me to see how far I will go, or just distracted. I love him to death but it is agravating. I have been told by the majority of everyone here NOT to use a choker , only harness. a few. not many said choker and I even wrote the breeder where I got him and she said she would NEVER put a choker on an ebd.. I am about to call Petsmart or some place and take a few class's. I am now bringing little pieces of cheese with me to get his butt to move with me. As it is- I live in south florida and it gets VERY hot here so I cannot keep him outside in this. I know he could overheat and die so I like to keep it 15 or 20 mins outdoors and I take him out now practially every hour. NEED HELP with this.. Thanks Hero
