2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

PostSubject: Update: Puppy won't potty outside   Sun Sep 30, 2018 7:06 pm

Today I have been out for hours with my puppy but he just won’t go potty outside. I left a blanket that had pee and I also left some of his poop on it, he just sniffed around and kept walking away. I tried playing with him, throwing balls. All he does was chew on the grass and lay down. I stayed for about a whole hour outside with him after he ate and drank, but nothing. After and hour of being in my backyard I took him back inside and he peed. He always goes to this one spot inside the house, and its a blanket that smells like pee, I read that I should take it off but I don't want to ruin the carpet. I went out frequently today but he didn’t go potty. Today was the first time I actually really started potty training him, just because the past few days it has been raining. And I know he won't learn in one day, but I thought puppies could only hold their pee and poo for so long, which is why I'm frustrated with him not pottying outside, he was holding it in for the whole time while I was outside with him. I'm worried he won't learn on time and continue to potty inside even as he gets older. I don’t know what else to do.

Age often depends on how long they can hold it. Think it's around an hour per month of age. So an 8 week pup could hold for a couple hours potentially. Wash the blanket in vinegar or an enzyme wash and move it or get rid of it. When you bring him in leave him on leash and don't let him go to that spot. Come in and go right back out. If he tries to pee inside give a correction through the leash and take right back outside. Even if he's mid squat grab him and shuck him out the door.

The way I potty trained mine, and it was mostly Mishka because Kohdi had it down within a day or two, was to wait til they had to go rather than to just take them outside and expect them to go. Like Jenn mentions, you catch him mid squat, grab him and put him outside. If he's inside and you see him sniffing urgently or heading towards that blanket, grab him and put him outside. Have a phrase for the job too, like "go pee pee", something that you can use each time and can associate this with. Once he goes, praise him, I think it's important, dogs love to know they've done something good. I would also give mine a treat for being good, it's about the only time I treated them for doing something I wanted.
