Thread: Puppy Weeing Inside

  1. #1

    Default Puppy Weeing Inside

    Hi there, I am still in the process of toliet training my puppies, they are going well but occassionally they will do a wee inside, after they have done one outside! Its annoying cause I take them out very regulary now.

    Is there any other way to deter them from weeing inside? ie Washing the floors with vinegar or something?? I heard them smell can work?

    Any other suggestions other than the obvious?

    I find toilet training requires time, patience and repetition.

    Keep a close eye on puppy, don't be in a rush to let puppy back in the door after feeding.

    Making outside as enjoyable as inside so puppy is happy to take themselves outside rather than duck into what they see as an unused room.

    Wash any soiled areas in diluted white vinegar.

    Close off bedrooms and extra rooms where possible, take up rugs and mats.

    Praise puppy for going outside, ignore any mistakes. Wait outside until puppy goes to the toilet, sometimes it takes a few minutes of walking around before the need to go right now hits them.

    I don't have a water bowl in the house it's outside near a bushy garden area and I find my puppies will have a drink then nick into the bush for a wee and then run back inside or off playing.

    So sorry nothing really outside the usual to offer.

    I'm still having a similar problem, only Max is now nearly 6 months. One of the problems I have is that I dont have a covered outside area and Max refuses to wee on the ground when its rainy or wet. I leave the garage door open for him during the day if I think its going to rain and he will wee in there sometimes if I'm not around.

    I also dont like leaving the back door open in the evenings all the time as flys and other bugs get in but he wont tell me he wants to go out if the door is shut. Its very frustrating.

    In my puppy preschool folder it suggests cleaning up with paper towels and placing them in the part of the garden you want then to wee on then clean up the area well with urineoff I think its called or something similar so that the smell is remeved

    Puppy training always takes it's time.

    The way I taught Pipi was if she ever started to go to the toilet inside I would pick her up if squatted somewhere, before started weeing and placed her on the grass.

    We also take her outside every 15 minutes, she got into a routine then and always waited at the door with her lead by her side.

    I suggest puppy wee training pads, you can get them quite cheap from th Reject shop for about $5 for 12 pads. I placed Pipi on them each time she decided she would go in the house, that way at night I did not have to take her outside as she knew she had to use the pads.

    The disinfectants may be encouraging her to wee there more, especially if ammonia based.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    As others have said, it just takes time. Ziggy, while quick to learn other tricks, still had inside accidents for some time. She got the main idea within a week or so, but still had accidents for about eight weeks. Now she is older she hasn't had any, and can hold on for some time, even during car trips etc.

    Mine can hold in the car and she usually sleeps pretty well at night.

    I am out of disinfectant now, so I guess thats okay as of the advice above.

    vinegar it is!
