Molly, Penny, Jammies, Olivia? Put a hockey stick in the yard. Every few hours, or 20-30 mins after eating, bring her outside on a leash to her “pee spot”. Wait for her to do her buisness by the stick. When she does, immediatley reward her with treats and praise her like she’s done the most wonderful thing ever. If you catch her having a whoopsie in the house, just interrupt her and bring her to her spot. Do NOT punish her for having an oopise if you didn’t catch her in the act. She will not understand why you’re not happy or what has to change. Also try hand feeding her so she understand where her food comes from. My dog was very defiant before we tried these measures.

My pup was pretty quick to pickup potty training.  I went through alot of puppy pads and we also crated trained him which helped.  He was 5 weeks when i got him and within a week of having him he held his balter all day if he was crated ๐Ÿ™‚  the puppy pads i put in areas where he had an accident before, and whenever i would see him start i would pick him up run outside and tell him “potty” i would say 2-3 weeks he was going to the back door and very few if any accidents in side.  he quickly outgrew his kennel and one day in the middle of the night i heard him get up and go in our master bath he jumped in the tub and had his accident in there(only happened once).  saved my carpet, good dog.  lol other then that no accidents since.  puppy pads were a life saver, kennel helped out alot oo and when you take her outside i would say us a command like potty or whaever you decide.  now everytime i get home and say potty he is outside doing his business

sorry to ramble on, good luck with your new pup she is adorable

Not Bella or Sadie.  The two most common dog names out there that drive me nuts.  There are 32 Bella’s at our doggie day camp!

I think she looks like a Margot ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t worry about her on the cold grass either. She’ll be fine.  You don’t want to use puppy pads if you don’t have to, this will only delay the training.

She is so sweet! No name suggestions, I always go with human names though. But don’t be afraid of putting her in the cold, she will be fine. Don’t leave her out there too long but make sure she is going potty and then bring her in. If she doesn’t go just bring her back in and then back out the second you see her ‘wandering’. I had to take out my pup in the freezing cold/snow when we first got her and it sucked but she never had an accident in the house.

Libby! I don’t know why but I instantly thought she looks like a LIbby

Take her out literally every 20 minutes and always give her a treat when she goes. I dont suggest indoor puppy pads becuase they are going to think it’s ok to go indoors.

Scout, Robin, Jazzy, Susie

Don’t use puppy pads! They just delay/confuse house breaking a dog. Plonk her in the cold wet grass- she’s a dog. Her instincts are to go in the grass, however cold or wet.

@HappySky7:  Oh that food tip is great! We always had rottweilers and did this. Then we would upgrade to the food bowl and we would sit next to them as puppies and put our hands in the food dish and move them around so they wouldn’t get terroritorial over their food.

She looks like a “Penny” …. she is adorable.Sorry about the housebreaking advise, i don’t really have any, i housebroke mine in the spring so it was very easy and she was sooo good… i used to take out 1/2 hr after her meals or would take her for a long walk and that worked.

Aww, what a cutie! I’d call her Roxie, no idea why, it was the first name that popped in my head. I just scrolled up and see someone else already mentioned that name too ๐Ÿ™‚

@arsing89:  Yes we used to “free feed” my weenie little cockapoo. He became very selective about listening. Once he understood that we control the food and he depended on us, he was much more responsive to food rewards. Overall, I like this method.
