Potty Training a Puppy?
TheRoadVirusI will show you why hurricanes are named after peopleRegistered Userregular
I adopted a puppy from the local animal shelter out here about a week and a half ago.
She's been good and is willing to learn, and as such, we've been able to teach her to sit and lay etc.
One problem, though, is that she is always peeing on the floor. Sometimes she'll drop a deuce as well, but more often than not, it's pee. This isn't as bad as it could be, as we have wood and tile floors as opposed to carpet so the cleanup isn't as hard.
There is really no pattern to her "accidents", and a lot of times she will pee inside shortly after doing the same thing in the backyard. We keep her kenneled (is that even a word?) at night, and after a few minutes of whining, she goes to sleep. She hasn't had a single incident in the kennel, which is great, but I'm honestly at a loss as to what to do to get her to stop.
Have any of you had any similar problems with your dogs? Any tips you'd be willing to share?
If it matters any, she's a Rottweiler/Australian Cattle Dog mix, according to the vet. She's about 4 months old also.
