Q&A on Housebreaking
I have a 9 month old cockapoo that is almost house trained but recently he’s been jumping up on my couch or bed and urinating. Is this dominance or insecurity?
My 10 month old puppy is clean in the crate overnight but when I crate him during the day he pees in there about 50% of the time. He's been checked for a bladder infection and he's fine. Do you have any suggestions?
My 4 year old dog is going to the bathroom in the house. We lived with my parents and their dog urinated in the house so my dog would mark his territory wherever the other dog went. He also used to go on pads at night based on our vet recommending this. Friends have said this is his way of getting back at me for moving to a new home. I'm getting frustrated and now I have a baby on the way so I don't want him doing this anymore. Please help me!
We adopted a dog about 5 months ago and she's about 95% house trained. How do we fix this last 5%?
We plan on getting a schnauzer puppy in April. One breeder told us to get a belly band for the puppy in the house while house training--even in the crate. I haven't seen you mention anything like this. Is this a good idea or something to disregard?
My house trained dog has started urinating on our bed. Is this a dominance issue? What should I do?
We have a new adult dog and she is wonderful except that she poops in the house. It’s gotten to the point that we walk her straight inside to her crate. That’s no life for a dog, please help.
My 3 1/2 year old dog is housebroken but is sneaking off to pee in the house. Can you help?
My 13 week old puppy rings a bell to go outside but sometimes he goes to the bathroom in the house. I don't understand why sometimes he rings the bell but not always. When should I expect him to be housebroken?
My 18 month old dog is comfortable in her crate and never goes to the bathroom in our house when we are home. I’ve started to leave her out of the crate in the afternoon for 6 hours and she’s constantly going to the bathroom on our carpet. Please help.
I have 2 puppies and they sleep in their crates all night without accidents. During the day they do not tell me when they need to go out even though I’ve put bells on the door for them to ring. What am I missing?
Our new pup is only having accidents on carpet. Is the carpet creating a problem for her? What can we do about it?
Our new puppy has a bladder infection. We don't want him to think it's ok to go potty in the house but we understand his situation right now. What should we do?
My 8 month old Rottie growls at me when I try and take his toy away. What should I do?
My puppy pees in the crate when we leave for errands even though he knows to sit by the door when he needs to go potty.
I will be bringing home a new pup shortly. I'm concerned that I might not always be able to break up the day with a trip home from work to give him a break. Do you have any suggestions?
I have tried to paper train my puppy, but haven't been successful. Please, can you help?
My dog is doing great at holding her bladder if she has to pee, but can't seem to wait if she has to poop. Any suggestions or advice?
Housebreaking my pup has been a nightmare. What would you suggest we do?
My 9 month old dog has been eliminating outside successfully for the past two months. He generally goes at the same times everyday. Recently had defecated in the house after playing outside. I'm looking for a reason as to why this may have happened.
