    Angry Potty Time!

    Hi I am new, to this community and to my puppy!!,
    My little Evie (12 week old Cav) is having some potty training problems... Oops! How can we train her? Any tips? We do NOT smack the pup. We have been taking her out every 30-35 mins. She also pees on our quilts! Any explanations???

    Have you been giving her plenty of praise when she goes outside? My puppy is a little bit older than your's.

    You are not the first to have this problem. You can solve it, by being patient, boring, and consistent.

    Keep your bedroom door(s) shut so she can't get in there to pee.

    Keep her on lead all the time in the house so she can't sneaky pee without you knowing - until she has learned where she's supposed to go. If you yell at her when she's peeing - she may just learn to hide first. But do interupt and carry her out if she catches you out. Take her out if she starts sniffing. Do not come back in until she has peed. Carry her to where you want her to go - if it's cold wet grass. Once her feet are wet - she may as well go there.

    When you take her out, be boring, do not come back in until she has peed.

    Clean up with something that does not contain bleach or ammonia.

    Stuff like biozet enzyme based washing powder, or bicarb soda then vinegar, then lavendar oil and water.

    PS - do not come back inside until she has peed.

    Like Hya said

    Just to add....stick you nose close to where she peed..if it is smelly she may have a UTI...puppies with UTI's are very hard to potty train

    Over at mine we still keep bedroom doors shut an our little cav boy is nearly 10mths, he likes my girls doona for some unkown reason. He was really good with going outside most of the time, then when he learnt how to lift his leg at not quite 6mths all hell broke lose no chair was safe. After he had the snip snip op things vastly improved and my chairs sighed with relief at not being wet. But then came the rain and my guy took exception to going outside so out came the puppy pads again, these worked well with number ones but not twos our boy prefers our garage when wet outside...Hence we do a poop walk around the car before we leave for school and work.

    Good luck keep persevering...

    Maxi - My boy was the same as maxi, once he got the ole "cock the leg" manouver, nothing was sacred. I was luckly enough to catch him in mid stream one day and gave him a quick slap on the arse where it didnt know it was me, and he hasnt done it again inside and he is 3yrs old...he associated the fright with the act of peeing on the furniture as it was instant.

    Puppy Love, Some good advise above , Puppies are just like children, they just need to realize the rules and as hard as it is...consistancy is the key and taking the time to ensure they as less accidents as possible, which is hard when so much is going on at home.

    I would have a crate in the house with food, water and toys for those times you cant watch her every minute making sure she dosent stay there to long, and keep her with someone when she is out, even on a lead attached to you. Use whichever potty word you choose and say it when your taking her out, and when shes doing it along with the praise.

    Catching them in the act is great...show her you are dont like what she has done and take her straight out to the grass.

    Im not sure if it is just a cavie thing, but my 3 yr old girl refuses to get her feet wet when it rains and will go on a small rug in the loungeroom, she will even cross her legs and hang on till shes let in.
    With a lot of days in a row of rain , we decided to set her up to catch her and she would only do it when we wernt around. So we left her outside for 6 hours and hid behind a door ...and jumped out, growled and frigtened her and put her outside....she has never done it again and the princess will now get her feet wet....

    I know its frustrating...hang in there.

    our old Aussie Terror didn't like getting her feet wet either. So if it was raining or wet grass, we just carried her out into the middle of it and wouldn't let her in until she "performed". She got pretty quick at performing because she just wanted out of the wet and that was the only way she was going to get what she wanted.
