Thread: Will a 12 Week Old Pup..

  1. #1

    Default Will a 12 Week Old Pup..

    So I have finally got my crate for Missy and i've been hesitant in putting her in overnight, just for the fact that I think she will do her business in there. We haven't really got toilet training down yet and she keeps just peeing anywhere she wants. I brought puppy training pads and it came with a attractant and ive put the pad down where she usually goes but she either goes beside it or on the edge. If I leave her in her crate for the night...will she pee and poop? Any tips?? I have been going out with her every 30 mins after meals but she just walks around sniffing...


    Thanks

    You really have to wait until she does her business outside if you want to make the toilet training work. Otherwise the dog will never get it. The only thing that really will make this work is if you manage to praise her abundantly for doing the right thing. So you have to set her up for success. Even if it takes a long time at first. The more you manage to praise her for doing it outside, the quicker she'll get with doing wees and poos when you take her. It's also best to take her out on the lead and take her to an area where you want her to go and just stand still so she cannot go sniffing around everywhere. Eventually she'll get bored and hopefully do her thing.

    Most dogs will avoid soiling their sleeping area, but if she has not been before you put her in the crate, she'll have no choice.

    We trained Zeke much the same way as what Beloz has said it took 7-10 days (same as kids it can be shorter or longer to toilet train) ,he has only had 2 accidents inside both our faults for not reading his new signs that he wanted to go out. Puppy pads didn't work with Zeke (he enjoyed eating them though )

    It was grass training for him, every time he put his head down and started sniffing and searching we took him straight outside to the same spot of grass gave him a voice cue and stayed there til he had gone to the toilet, we kept him on a leash all the time with us unless we were playing. It was a great way to avoid missing anything and helped us to read his little quirks.

    If the crate you have for Missy is huge then she will most likely do her business down one end to avoid soiling her sleeping area (crate dividers can help with reducing her sleeping area) once Zeke was toilet trained we then crate trained him to sleep overnight, until he was trained we did shifts to take him outside to the toilet, for him it was 4 hours in between toilet breaks, I would go to bed at 1 30 - 2am and OH was up at 5-30 - 6am then he would stay with me at home or at work all day.

    Now he sleeps in a bed in the bedroom after a last toilet stop (he has to do 1's and 2's before we come inside) around 11 30-midnight ish and wakes with us at 5-30 6am but if he needs to go to the toilet in between he will nudge us awake, he has woken us 3 times so far and he is 26 weeks old now.

    Ahhhhh, those toilet training days, where you spend nearly every two hours hanging around for the twinkle or such. And than you have to show excitement and reward.

    After puppy eats, after puppy gets up, when puppy has those certain moves, after two hours or such

    I do not miss the sleepless night. I never expected mine to last past four hours, so it was one late trip and a wake-up call during the night. All of us, including the other dogs would be tired for a few weeks. But it is not forever

    LOL wish they could wear nappies some nights when my eyes would be hanging out of my head, OH made the mistake of giving the high pitched cue "toillie" now my husband realises how funny it sounds when he is out with friends so Zeke is nearly always toileted out of hearing when with my OH

    My word is twinkle, at least it gives people a laugh. Though a newfie is more like a waterfall not twinkle

    My dogs all know the words widdle widdle which can be a question or a command. If people are visiting I can be looked at oddly, lol.

    I use wee-wees.

    I have to say that I never had to do enough toilet training with my dog to get to the point where she would really know the word and do it on cue. But that was because she was already older and it took her only 2 nights to stop having accidents inside after I got her.

    I always make myself laugh when she comes and checks what I am doing on the toilet (there's only me and my daughter, so we never close the bathroom door) and I hear myself say: "I'm doing wee-wees, Banjo!"

    LOL my husband is 6'2'' and Zeke is supposedly to most people a "tough" looking dog, so the looks and giggles make me quietly laugh, but the OH sneaks away when Zeke needs to go like a school boy up to no good, so that makes me LOL, I haven't told him we can change Zekes cue yet I am having to much fun with some of them and his reactions

    Twinkle isn't to bad Newfsie but yeah I can imagine it is anything but a twinkle with your dogs

    Di Dee I think my husband would bolt and crawl under a rock if he had to publicly say widdle widdle

    LOL Zeke likes to check out people going to the toilet as well, my mum was a little surprised when she didn't close the door and Zeke walked in and sat in front of her wagging his tail She now closes the door and latches it lmao
