    Default Happy then sad!

    I wanted to get on here this morning and just tell everybody for one time in 3 1/2months which is since I have had my bully, that I was going to say for the first time ever we didn't have an accident, WRONG, as soon as we was getting ready for bed she decides to stop and pee on my carpet like usual and then run and hide from me, ugh why so stubborn, my hopes r well on its way of hoping this will end very soon, thank u all for all the support and comment I recent questions with potty braking!

    My guess is that she doesn't know what you want from her. It's not her fault. Create a strict schedule and stick to it. She's running away because you are teaching her to be fearful. Your sweet pup wants to please you...it's in her DNA to do so! Be patient - don't rant or make a giant production when she makes a mistake - and stick to a very strict schedule. When you can't watch her -- crate or exercise pen her. When I was at work, my dogs had access to a potty pad on a tray (bed, toys, water too) and they used it. When she does go outside, THEN make a big POSTIVE production out of it. Is she food motivated? Bring treats with you. Do all of these things and she will catch on, I promise you.

    they learn at different rates and times. The more consistant the quicker she'll pick it up. don't scold her, just pick her up and take her outside and say Potty time. Like you said she is 3 months old, that's not so bad yet.

    Great advice!! I also agree a schedule is so important! When Winston had accidents i just brought him outside and said this is where you go potty. When he did go outside I used to jump around say good boy and give him treats, he looked at me like I was half nuts but he got the point! Stick with it, these little babies are smart, she will learn!!

    It will! Potty training challenges is probably the MOST POSTED problem here. You are not alone.

    The other thing to address is being sure you are eliminating the odor from where she already went to discourage her using the area again. Natures Miracle or some other type of odor eliminator. (even vinegar works, but the NM is specifically formulated for it)
