  • Get yourself a kennel cage and put him in there, do they do not poop where they live!

  • How are you training her? Crate, pads, what?

  • Crate train. Only keep him/her in a crate just big enough for them to lay down in. Let the dog out first thing in the morning, and if he/she pees/poops outside, let him/her play outside of the crate for a while, say 15-30min, then back in the crate. Throughout the day, take puppy out. Eventually they'll get the picture.

  • I have been using pads, and she has a cage that she stays in at night and when im not home. when i take her outside she goes to the bathroom but then 5 minutes after we are back inside she is going to the bathroom in the house!!! Its frustrating!!

  • Clap or make a loud noise to startle them if they start piddling in the house. Then pick puppy up and bring him/her outside and let them do their business. When they're done, lots of pats,rubs,kisses, and cuddles. I got my dog potty trained in a couple weeks by doing that. The thing is, when I trained my dog, I didn't have children at the time so I had more time to keep an eye on her. Just a suggestion though =)

  • Crate training has always been the easiest for me

  • When I got Mona I would take her outside almost every hour or so and when I was not home I left her in the yard. She was easily houe broken When she needs out she will scratch on the door and sit and wait for me to come open it.
