    Yep, that's definitely cruel don't do it, he is a baby and he can't help it. At 8 weeks old his bladder is too small to hold it in, the fact that he stands by the door shows he knows he has to go outside to use the toilet. Accidents happen it will take until he is about 5 months until it stops completely. I know my boyf got frustrated with our Bulldog but the little pup is trying his best so he just needs patience!

    ^ exactly. Plus rubbing his nose in it won't get you anywhere as you don't know how long it's been on the floor. Unless you catch him in the act and give him a firm NO or let him know that's wrong, he will not know why you are scolding him.

    As others have stated.... rubbing their nose in it does nothing..... just stay consistent and get the little guy on a good schedule. Keep in mind they can only hold their bladder one hour more than they are months old (i.e 2 months old... hold bladder for 3 hours)

    Default Peeing.

    Positive reinforcement goes a long way. Treats and praise each time they do their business outside, bullies are so motivated this way!

    When I clean up a mess I only get mad at the mess, never to the pup. I will pretend cry and whimper like its a very sad thing for me to clean it up. They think it makes me so very sad and they don't want that... They seem to pick up on that very quickly. If they get scolded for it they will run and hide so it does no good except create a game of hide and seek.

    I can't stress positive reinforcement enough Sheldon loves hearing he is a good boy and loves hearing the praise and loves he gets when he does good.

    I learned the hard way that Baxter truly didn't know he was doing anything wrong.
    For a few weeks you will need to do your best to initiate the peeing yourself.
    Meaning take him to the proper pee spot with a treat (i used blueberries), every hour.
    Then give him a blueberry and praise him.
    This is the hardest part: When he pees inside, wrong place, on something, etc .... say a very stern "No", but don't do anything else.
    No contact. No nose pressing. Nothing.
    With this breed, a negative vibe and a stern NO is sufficient to get the message across.
    They are so sensitive to tone of our voice its shocking to me.
    If you don't catch him in the act, do ... absolutely ... nothing.
    The only thing you'll do is create angry / scary / bad energy between the two of you.
    This will work against you in the future, as he won't bond with you as much.
    Every hour, take him to his proper location.
    Expect hundreds (literally) of accidents.

    Treats at the proper location is the key to success.
