Teaching our 13 week old pup Buckley, the correct toilet habits has been a huge mission. For the 5 weeks we have had him we have consistently let him out to relieve himself. It's a slow and tiring process but he is definitely making progress.
He now walks over to the door when he needs to go to the toilet, however our problem is in the fact that he never waits for us to get up to open the door and he never makes any noise to let us know he wants to go out, so he often relieves himself right by the back door. I've read a few things on google about attaching a bell to the door, but has anyone had any success in teaching a puppy to tap his paw at the door when he wants to go outside or in?
Was thinking maybe if i lift his paw to tap on the door and say the command "wee's" (which is what i use when I'm outside and want him to go to the toilet) he will catch on?
