why does it seem like every is on board then back out?

so we got a puppy with the understanding that everyone not just me has to help potty train it. i can't be with it all the time & when i leave i put her outside but i often come home or down stairs to find the puppy inside with my husband and son either on computer, tv or playing video games & puppy is mia. of course i go & find poo or pee marks around the house. i'm so fed up and can't see how in the world if others let her pee & i'm the only one training how she will ever learn, doesn't she need more consistency then this? she won't do the crate thing. she'll go in but won't stay in it and i won't force her by shutting the door. should i have a family meeting & tell everyone i must see more of an effort & if no-one else does their share that she has to go, is this fair to ask? any more tips would be appreciated as how to get everyone on board.i read while looking 4 tips her breed is hard 2 potty train. plus have another ?

  • i would be takin her out every 30 minutes..the key to potty training is the same as children..you need to be consistent!! lotsa praise when they pee outside, rewards, love, everthing...now when she goes inside..unless you see her doing it, you cant do anything..but if you see her in action, give her a firm NO!! pick her up and place her outside. and ya, some breeds are harder to train than others..i got my golden ret when he was 3.5 months..and he has NEVR peed or pooped in the house..hes jjust under 2yrs now..whereas my other 2, theyre maltipoo x shihtzus, theyre 6 months now, we got them when they were 4 months..and man oh man, theyre a handfull!! geting better..but.stil, its annoying!! sooo good luck!! and remember to stay consistent and lotsa praise!!!!!!
