    Default Help!!!!

    My baby bully has had two accidents in the house, both poop! And both right after she eats! Is it normal for them to poop right after eating? I'm talking within seconds after eating? I was told to wait five min after eating then to take her outside to go bathroom.. well she don't wait five min... feeling frustrated.

    If you have a puppy, they need to go out as soon as they eat and play, and if very young about every hour! You have to try to get her on a schedule-and that may be determined by her. If she goes as soon as she eats-then take her right out when she is finished eating. How old is your pup?

    Hi, I'm sorry you're going through this with Izie, I'm not sure why she would be doing this. How old is your bully, and how long has she been doing this? Is it a new behaviour. You are right to wait to take her out after eating to let her tummy settle. My male Bulldozer will throw up a little if he gets excited or exercises right after eating. I usually wait for about 1/2 an hour after they eat before taking them out. They will usually poop within a 1/2 hour to an hour after they eat.

    My next question to you is when is this happening? Is she pooping after breakfast in the morning, and are you taking her out before she eats? I always take my guys out first thing in the morning at around 6:00 am, and then feed them both at 6:30 am. Then they usually go back to sleep for an hour or two, and then I take them out again, and they will usually poop again. They poop first thing in the morning, because they've been sleeping all night, so it's been 7 or 8 hours since they went the night before, and they usually go again a few hours after they have eaten. My guys usually go poop 2 to 3 times a day. Try taking Izie out first thing in the morning, then feed her, and then take her out again a couple of hours after she eats, and see if this helps.

    Three months is very young, and she will have to go out quite often. When I was potty training, I would take them out about every hour-and right after eating-or playing. Then as they get on a schedule that works, gradually extend the time. I also had a puppy pad down in a spot that they seemed to favor(when they did a "sneaky pee".)
    Everyone has their own ideas. I was home with them most of the time. If having to leave, I would crate them-or have a "play pen". to put them in. When you take her out, and she goes, give her LOTS of praise and a small treat and tell her how good she is.Like get really happy! If she goes in the house, just clean it up and ignore. Eventually she will get the message. Bribery /treats and praise works better for bulldogs more than other doggie methods.

    I agree with Lynn, at 3 months she's still very young and still learning. Puppies generally hold for one hour for every month of age, and by 5 months can hold for 6 to 8 hours. I would go back to basics, and put her on a strict potty schedule. Take Izie out every one to two hours, and before eating, and after she has played or exercised, or gets excited. Puppies will usually go pee and or poop after they have played or after they are excited. This is the schedule that worked for me when my guys were puppies.




    Re: Potty training help




    Hi, the general rule of thumb for a puppy is that they can hold their bladder for 1 hour over their age, so a 2 month old puppy can hold for 3 hours, a 4 month old puppy can hold for 5 hours, and they should be totally trained by 5 months old, and can hold for 6 hours by this age. Puppy training is mostly consistency and schedule. This is the schedule we used for our guys when they were puppies, and it worked really well.




    It took us 5 months to fully potty train. The general rule is that they should be able to hold 1 hour for every month of age, so that by the time they are 5 months they should be able to hold for 6 hours. We used a pretty strict schedule for training our guys, until they were trained. Here is the schedule that worked for us.




    For potty training, we just used a schedule, this is what we did and they were trained by the time they were 5 months old, and we've never had a accident in the house.




    Hi new Bully parents, my name is Monica, and I have 2 English Bulldog pups, they are both 9 months old, and are brother and sister, their names are Bulldozer and Blossom. I've noticed a lot of new puppy owners have posted questions regarding potty training for their new babies. Since my 2 are now 9 months old, and I have been through this already, I thought I might share what worked for us. The puppy stage is very much like having a baby in the house, the training takes time and patience, and sleepless nights, but it is a temporary phase. The best thing that you can do to make potty training go smooth and without accidents is to first crate train your new baby, this will make your life much easier. Crate training your pup is not a cruel thing to do, they actually learn that the crate is a safe place. You can use it for sleeping, and for a safe place to put puppy in when you can't watch or supervise them, and for when you need to go out. The other important thing to do for successful puppy training is establishing a schedule. This worked the best for us, and our babies were fully trained by 5 months old. The schedule that worked for us was:






    6 am: Take puppy out for their first pee and poop of the day




    7 am: Feed puppy breakfast 1/3 of a cup kibble mixed with water.
    Place puppy back in crate for 10 mins to let tummy settle after eating.
    Then take puppy out for potty again.




    7 am: From 7 am to 2 pm take your puppy out every hour or two throughout the day , and increase the
    time by an hour each week , so they learn to hold.




    2 pm: Feed puppy lunch 1/3 of a cup of kibble mixed with water.
    Place puppy in crate for 10 mins to let tummy settle after eating.
    Then take puppy out for potty again.





    2 pm: From 2 pm to 8 pm, take your puppy out every hour or two during the day.




    8 pm: Feed puppy dinner 1/3 of a cup of kibble mixed with water.
    Place puppy back in crate of 10 mins to,let tummy settle after eating.
    Then take puppy out again.






    8 pm: From 8 pm to 11 pm , take your puppy out every hour or two, until around 11 pm or 11:30 pm.
    The last pee and poo break will be at around 11 pm before you go to bed.
    Take your puppy's water away around 8 or 9 pm, otherwise you will have many accidents throughout
    the night.



    2 am: We would set our cell phone for 2 am to go out for a pee. The time between 11 pm and 6 am when
    they go out for their first pee is too long for the new puppy to hold, but again this a temporary phase,
    and the puppy will eventually be able to hold all night. This happened for us when the pups were 5
    months old. After they were 5 months old, we were able to eliminate the 2 am outing, and they were
    able to hold for 4 or 5 hours at a time during the day.








    I hope this helps any new puppy owner that has maybe never owned a pup before, and doesn't know how to train a puppy, or anyone who has a new puppy and is struggling to train them. At first it's like you are training when the puppies will go, but eventually they will tell you when they need to go out, they will either go to the door, or bark, or whine, my female Blossom will whine, when she wants out, my male Dozer will bark. Another thing to do is take your puppy out before and after they play, as they will always go pee after they have been excited.




    Good luck to everyone, and remember this is a temporary phase , your puppy will be trained before
    You know it. Enjoy your new baby


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The schedule we use now that they are older is:


    6:00 am Go out for Potty, they usually do both


    6:30 am Eat Breakfast


    10:00 am Go for a walk, and potty breaks


    2:00 pm Go out for potty breaks


    6:00 pm Eat dinner


    6:30 pm Go out for a walk, and potty breaks


    10:00 or 11:00 pm out for last walk and potty breaks

    She's very young still and if you've just had her for two days, she's still very new to everything. Take her out every hour, and right after eating, lift her up (one hand under her bottom) and carry her out!
