    I agree with everyone. Patience and consistency are your two best friends with an EB puppy!!!!!! Since he was never trained I would treat him as you would a puppy and go back to the very basics. Keeping them on a schedule helps and treats, treats and more treats!!! Mine will be 5 months on Monday, we got him when he was 7 weeks. When he was small he couldn't go 20 minutes in between peeing. You have to watch them like a hawk and look for their "signs" until they are trained!

    We have a behaviorist that comes to our house often for private lessons and we also attend weekly obedience classes with our puppy and they both say to reward with treats WHILE they are doing their business outside that way they also know why they are being rewarded. I try to think of Patton's brain as a goldfish lol anything after a few seconds and forget it, they forget! Hence why our trainers said to give the treats (and praise) while they are in the act. I also would praise him verbally as well, I'm sure my neighbors thought I was the town looney from my happy dance!

    But you'll find what works for you, of course all our babies are different and respond to different techniques. My best advise is an unlimited amount of patience and consistency and you'll see progress before you know it.

    Best of luck to you!!
    Proud to be Patton's Mommy.
