    It will stop when she is thoroughly house trained, but this will not happen quickly if she continues having accidents.

    Pups generally do not have much voluntary control until about 5 months of age, so when they need to go they cannot hold on for long, like a toddler who says they want the potty as the wee trickles down their legs :D

    You need to be thorough in your approach and TAKE her out every time she wakes up, has food a drink plays and every half hour in between, and you must STAY out with her until she goes and praise her up to the skies.

    Do not shout at her for going indoors as she will just sneak off to do it behind your back, and you need to use a cleaner that is biological, or solution of vinegar or bicarbonate of soda.

    Do not let her have too much freedom in the house unless you are watching her every second.

    toy breeds can sometimes be very hard to house-train.

    Thanks Brainless for the advise the last two mornigs when I have got up the area where she sleeps has been clean no mess and she is starting to let me know when she needs to go outside.
    I have noticed with her when it is raining she wont go out and she does not like the dark. :)

    Make sure rain or shine that you go out with her - she'll catch on really quickly if you are there to tell her what a special, wonderfully brilliant little girl she is for doing wee wees/poos outside:)

    Great looks like shes learning, lots of praise when she does poop and wee outisde but of course lots of stick when seh does it inside. It will catch on....hopefully you won't need to rub her nose in it!

    Sorry colacooler but I totally disagree with 'lots of stick when she does it inside' - whatever that means!! Ignore the bad and praise the good - if you start making a song and dance about it when she has a hiccup she'll just start doing it all the more - unless you catch them at it they dont even have a clue what it is that you are going on about. That is, of course, just my humble opinion:rolleyes:

    Thanks to all.for your posts the person we brought the dog from said she would paper train it for me while i went to scotland they have three dog fully grown amd i dont think they are tained as well so I think that if the fully grown dogs are not trained my dog will be harder than if she came from a different home

    Don't be so soft! The dog has to know it's done wrong. Worked well for all of mine!

    Dogs are clever, they very quickly associate peeing in the house with being told off, and they hate it!
     
  14. Yep...Seems to be Brainless is the wrong name...Should be something like Brainpower, or Brainattack!:D

    I agree with you I have noticed that if you treat her like a baby she starts doing it inside but if you are stirct with her she is great

    Trouble is some of them will just learn that it is peeing that you object to and not peeing indoors, so they won't go in your sight, and wait until your not around or sneak into another room.

    The best thing is to ignore accidents, if caught in the act whisk outside (no telling off) and then praise when they finish outside.

    If your pup is sensitive telling off can really make things worse, and undermine your relationship.

    Thanks for that Brainless - I dont consider myself soft - far from it!!!

    My methods have worked well for me - my last pup was clean during the day at 15 weeks so we didnt do too bad seen as we didnt get him til nearly 10 weeks old - and childish as this may be if there was a smiley with a sticky out tongue you'd be getting one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PMSL!!!!!
