    Shorkie potty trained great and then she started to reverse roles. Now she holds it to relieve inside the house. She could be outside all day and hold but once inside she relieves herself everywhere. Help! I am trying to retrain her

    My puppy goes inside the crate or any enclosed place I will put her into. Isn't it weird that the dog would do it to its' "place"?

    Hi! My 6 month old puppy used to pee in the grassy areas of the backyard but since he’s learned how to mark, he hasn’t been peeing as consistently. He will mark one tree and save it for when he goes on walks to mark again. How do I get him to pee an almost full load in the backyard?

    Also, if a dog has been trained to go outside and we suddenly feel the need to use pee pee pads, how do I transition?

    Hi thank you for your video, I have a 3 yr old Havanese which we rescued. She pees in the crate, she pees everywhere. It’s very frustrating I’ve tried everything. I’ve tried a schedule a routine, treats, scolding, different size crates, I don’t know what else to do.

    My Toy Fox Terrier is having the worst time with her crate. It's like she can't hold it for longer than 30 minutes. Whatever I do, whatever I put into the crate, she ends up pissing on it. Even when it's empty, she still pisses in it. Then she ends up sitting in it and queue bath #3 for the day. She drinks twice a day, less than an Imperial cup total, and pisses 10 times as much. I can't take her outside every 30 minutes. I'm lost as to what to do.

    I have my puppy for two months and followed all the guidelines for potty training. He loves his crate, has held his pee all night since day one, have a bell on door, goes out on lease every time to potty. He still is not getting it, in fact there are times he will pee indoors 10 min or less after peeing outside. It appears he is doing it on purpose if he does not have our full attention. He has occasionally range his bell but not very much. What else can we do? We are being very consistent but it is not working. Help!

    Please help! We have a 10 week old male English Bulldog puppy. He is pretty good about going on a potty pad, however, whenever we take him outside all he wants to do is lick the dew/rain off of the grass or roll around in the grass. We have a potty pad in his crate and if he doesn't go outside, we bring him back inside, put him in his crate and he will then go on the potty pad. We are at a loss! Any ideas would be great!

    We got 2 yorkies puppies 3 months ago and were hoping that we’d see better results with potty training by now but they constantly are outside and then we bring them in and they have an accident. However since there are 2 of them, we don’t always know which did making it more difficult to train them. Do you have any tips on potty training 2 pups at once?

    I let my puppy outside I have a fenced yard so I let him out there for a good amount of time even right after he eats and drinks his water, when he whines to come back in I let him in and he pees or poops literally right after taking him outside. I don't know what to do.

    My puppy, lately he doesnt even give any warning if he's gonna pee, he'd just stand there bark then pee. The only time he ever gave me a warning is when we are in my room, he sleeps with me btw, and he kept me up since 11:45 a.m on a school night then I finally took him out at 4:30 a.m, I was surprised he didnt just juml off my bed while I was asleep and do his biz. But when he's out of the room, he'd just pee the whole world full

    I have a blue tick beagle and she can’t stand the crate?, she goes ballistic inside and cry’s up a storm. She’s was a rescue and was separated from her mother pretty young. Any tips on how to combat this hurdle? Makes potty training a little difficult and confining her to a space is difficult because of severe separation anxiety

    My puppy is 4 months, I got her 2 weeks ago. Can you give some advice for people who don't have a backyard? When I take her out, it's always on a leash. Sometimes we only go to her potty spot, sometimes we do longer exploratory walks. Sometimes she goes before she gets to her potty spot. Sometimes I carry her to her potty spot, sometimes I don't. She almost always goes when we're outside. Advice? I don't know how to make it consistent. She can hold it for a few hours in her crate (and 7-8 hours overnight) but if she's out of her crate (in a confined area) she can only hold it for an hour and then we're in the danger zone. This evening she peed in the middle of intense play (she had peed outside 50 minutes before, ugh).

I am now either keeping her on a leash inside with me or in the crate. I cannot tolerate her peeing in my house and want to stop it quickly. What other suggestions can you make to help me. Thank you

    We have a Toy Poodle (5 month old), we put weewee pads down throughout the house and he has successfully used them for peeing. However, he often poops away from the pad. Also, he is very destructive…he'll tear up anything he can get ahold of. I'm tired- inexperienced pet owner. Please help!

    My pup is a rescue. She was in a foster home with her siblings until she was 4 months old. She was not trained at all and I don't think she ever went outside. She just pooped and peed in her crate and in the pin in the house. We aren't doing too badly. She is crate trained now. She doesn't go in her crate and can hold it all night. I am beginning to read her signs, but as you said she has to be watched. The second my eyes are off of her…BOOM! It is usually when I am making dinner. Well, now when I am making dinner, the crate it is.
    I am using a bell on my door as I did with my other dog. I have been consistent about taking her out. I am teaching her to "touch" the bell when we go to the door. When we go out she will pee pretty much on command. Her poop schedule is coming along.
    My issue is that I don't feel like she is coming to get me and she isn't ringing the bell or even really consistently going to the door. When I take her from her crate she can hold it until we go outside. My question is…do I need to pick her up? And can she walk around a bit when going out rather than staying in one place. I don't allow her to play at this time, in fact I won't even take my other dog out at the same time because then they do try to play.
    This video was very helpful though. Thanks!

    We have 3 month old beagle mix puppies. They do excellent in their crate and they potty outside with no issue. We stay outside and let them play to run off energy. I myself visualize them going pee at least 4 times and poop.
    When they are done we go inside and the pee in the carpet almost immediately. It's only a little but it's every time.
    If they drink water we go right back outside for them to potty…but pee a little when they come in. The girl pees more than the boy. It's like they aren't fully emptying their bladder or something.

    This is pretty much the process we use. Up in the morning, from crate to her spot outside, pee, poop a little walk back in for bkfst. Nap time. Up and back outside wash rinse repeat. I do supervise her as I'm home all the time! 2 questions.. when she needs to poop, she gets real fiesty and bite-y to let me know. How do I transition that to going to the door and whining to out out to indicate she needs to go? Thank you
