Moving house with dog – potty training Question?
I am sorry if I sound totally ignorant, but this is my first time moving with any animal, and I was wondering if I have to train my dachshund all over again when we move. He is fully trained at this house (for a doxie!), but when we went over there today he has already peed in the kitchen. I know he will be stressed but we are being as gentle as possible about it.
Anyway, my question is that will I need to retrain my dachshund to potty, and do you have any good tips on how to do this as easy as possible?
Thank you so much.
No, you shouldn’t have to re-train him. All you’ll need to do is keep him in the room with you for the first little while to watch him for signs that he needs to go out because he’s not going to know where the door is to go out. All he should need is a couple of days to figure out the new house and where the door is that he goes out of, so until then just keep him close to you, take him out often and praise him just like you did when he was a puppy. He’ll catch on really quickly.
Potty Training a half house trained dog?
I have a one year old puggle and she’s partly potty trained. I take her out as soon as i get out of bed and she does her business and i give her a treat. She also tends to go pee separatly then when she poos. She’ll pee, run inside and then i’ll see her at the door again. I’ll take her out and she’ll poo. Note that i’m not calling her after she pees, she does this herself. Also, she does know to go to the back door and whine, bark or scratch to be let out to pee or poo, but sometimes she’ll sneak away and just do her business in a hidden spot in the house. I’ve tried to minimize these spots by restricting her availability to the house but I can’t understand why she can’t hold it in or wait to be let out.
She mostly does this when I am not around. I moved back with my parents and they have been changing her dog food around because they buy cheap dog food. I attribute this to the increase in peeing and pooing because she needs to eat more to feel full and its full of salts and whatnot so she needs to drink more. Am I right? Should i go out and buy the old, better dog food myself that I used to give her and will this minimize her potty useage? And how do i get her to be 100% potty trained? I would say she’s about 70% trained but still goes when I’m not around…I was told puggles are spiteful when their masters leave but do I need to do the crate thing until she understands that is only for OUTSIDE?
Sorry for the multiple questions too…but thanks for your help in advance.
Walk her on a leash until she does both. Most dogs don’t pee and poop in the same spot. They typically pee first then walk around a bit and then poo. Definitely add crate training. After you walk her, if she hasn’t pooped and you think she should have, then crate her and about 20-30 minutes later bring her back outside and try again. This worked wonders for a stubborn manchester that we have. Go back to the good food.
how do i get a dog to potty outside after training on pee pads in the house?
my mom got a dog from the pound and she is disabled so it is hard for her to take dog out. so when i can’t be there she uses potty training pads for in the house. when i am there the dog has unlimited access to the outside, but comes in to go potty. how do i change this behavior?
I have the perfect system for you. It’s the tinkle bell method. Go to hobby lobby and buy a Tinkle Bell or Jingle bell whatever you want to call it. Hang it on the door with plastic string (so your dong wont want to chew it).
Then ring the bell 25-35 times and every time you do it give them their favorite treat.
Then they will ring the bell themselves receiving a treat everytime.
After your dog rings the bell start taking them out side and praising them with more treats when they go poo poo or potty.
When they use the restroom inside on the pad hold them down in a dominating state and let them know this is bad(spanking is not necessary) Then after you pick up the pad have them ring the bell and take them and the pad outside and give them a treat showing your dog the spot outside you want them to go potty at.
This gets tedious but the pay off is great. I trained our 2 year old lab/boxer mix as well as our new 8 week old chiuahuah/pommeranian mix. They use the bell eveytime they want to go outside and it took 3 days to learn and about 2 weeks to perfect.
Potty/house training a dog.?
So I’m trying to train my dog to use the restroom on a mat. Everyone told me that I should put his nose in it, and then take him to the mat to get him trained. However, when i put his nose in his urine he licks it. I don’t like this because I don’t think its sanitary and I believe by him licking it, he doesn’t take it as a punishment. Is this normal? If not what other ways can I let him know peeing in the house is bad.
He’s a puppy. 9 weeks old.
You should never rub your dog’s nose in his excrement. It does not teach them anything because they do not associate the punishment with the crime…it’s too far removed.
How do you house potty train a dog about 1-2 years old?
My dog is really hyper and likes to pee and poop anywhere, anytime. Its hard to be patient with him, so I need some good advice. Thanks.
I had the same problem! Dog was peein and poopin everywhere. One day my husband decided enough was enough. I went away on a business trip for a week and when I got back the dog was miraculously potty trained.
Of course I was amazed and asked him how this could be possible. He said he followed the “7 day plan” and he would show me.
So he goes online and shows me this: http://rds.yahoo.com/**http%3a//bit.ly/1jojsJ
If our dog can be potty trained in only 7 days following this plan, any dog can. Ours was totally out of control and friends wouldn’t even come in our house.
U should give it a try. Even if it takes more than 7 days it’s worth it in my opinion. My house doesn’t smell like pee anymore, lol!!
