    [QUOTE=BeagleMan;104408]Yeah she does pull sometimes, especially if a dog starts barking, fence cant be fixed.[/QUOTE

    I would change the routine if I were you. train/feed/walk/toilet seems more logical to me. this routine can become train/play/drink/toilet outside. Have a go!!

    i thought my way made more sense, she would be hungry from the walk, used up some energy thus making it easier to train.

    sadly playing is out, she seems to want to but doesnt know how, her old owner didnt play with her much, rubber squeaky bone, soft squeaky fully bone, tennis balls, a rope like toy, no interest in them, she has a small pooh bear she chews on for a few minutes and part of the vacuum but that it, not matter how much i try.

    The most effective method of dog toilet training involves the use of a crate. Dog is an intelligent and clean animal. They prefer to keep the place clean where they sleep. After initial 2 weeks of training, your dog will learn what is expected of him in terms of toilet habits. Your dog should go to crate for rest, use the designated place for potty.

    well thanks for all the advice, i just thought i would let people know it all failed completely.
    she pees in the yard of a night time, refuses to pee during the day, refuses to pooh at all, she just holds it in.

    she has stopped having accidents. (well im guessing as its now 24 hours since she pooped im betting she will do something in the house tonight)

    i really dont understand it 2 months, peeing for a month in the yard at night, but nothing else.
    nor can i understand how after 2 days worth of food she hasnt pooped since 8pm last night.

    Hi BM,

    Sorry to hear that!!! How are you coping? You must be totally overwhelmed. She does not have UTI or anything like that, does she?
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Hi hachna,

    I am not coping, i love her but she is pushing me towards selling her, while i understand dogs need walk sometimes my health makes it harder to do, and with her not going in the yard it makes my life miserable.

    Well im not sure, she is peeing 3 or 4 times a day, but she usually drinks a cup of water a day.

    Ok I haven't read the other posts, so sorry if im repeating.

    Keep feeding at the same time everyday. A raw diet will take about 5 hours to digest, while kibble takes around 8-10.
    If your dog is on kibble(like mine), feed her before you go to bed. In the morning, let her outside straight away, or if possible, take her for a 5 minute run/brisk walk around the yard to get everything moving again. Obviously if she poos/pee;reward. Leave her outside till the very last minute you have to leave for work.
    If she is on a raw diet, walk her when you get home, feed her immediately after then put her outsider for half an hour. Bring her back in and take her out 2 hours later. If she still hasn't done anything, take her out every hour until she does.
    Don't make yourself interesting, go outside and stand at the door.
    If she doesn't finish her food in one go, take it away. She doesn't get anymore till the next day.

    As for her water, freeze the majority of it, so its only really lickable.

    When you arn't around, leave her in the laundry/bathroom with a bed, toys etc.

    Always thoroughly clean where she poos/pees to remove the odour.

    Hope that helps!

    she is on a cupful of dry dog food for breakfast, another cup at lunch, and a cup of mince and rice at dinner.
    yes i know but she gets walked twice a day, and runs around allot.

    Hi- we also have a beagle. This breed is difficult to toilet train- its a known beagle trait. There is a great international beagle forum (hope its ok to post the link?) beagleworld Beagle Discussion - Beagle Forum : Our Beagle World Forums
    and there is a lot of discussion there similar to yours.
    Beagles are quite distructive, huge chewers, hard to house train, scent obsessed so escape and have no recall. They are pack dogs- used to hunt hare in packs and can suffer terrible speration anxiety (ours thankfully does not).

    With all that said we are really starting to enjoy the time with our beagle- but they do have their challenges. A tired beagle is a well behaved beagle...
