My 4 month old is doing better with potty training. We are training him to go outside only. He sleeps in the crate and has been from the day we got him. He got up in the night for a couple of weeks and then started sleeping through. But during the day he has to go out every 2 hours unless we crate him then he will go for 4 -5 hours no problem. My Question is i have never tried to keep him out of the crate for more than 2 hours without taking him out and he does not tell us if he is outside the crate by any signal if he has to go except once I caught him sniffing and going back and forth so knew he had to poop. how you train your dog to let you know or how do your pup's tell you outside the crate that they have to go. (He stays in the play pen for most day but also sits in my room with me while I am working on a leash.

I donít know how you train a dog to signal you to go out unless you have trained them to ring a bell. In my experience, dogs find a way to tell you on their own as they mature. If you always use the same door to exit your home for potty your dog may go sit by the door to signal you. Molly will either stand up on our legs or come up to us on our laps and get in our face if we are sitting down. Believe me, she lets you know when she needs to go potty and we did not train her to do this.

If you're using the same door to take your puppy out to potty, when he has more freedom to roam around he'll likely go to the door and paw or bark. If you hang bells on the door and each time you taken him outside, help the puppy paw the bell. He'll eventually get the idea and when older he'll paw the bell when he wants outs. I doubt at four months he's housebroken and probably a little young to ask to out.

I taught my other dogs to Bark to go out. I'd go to the door and say,"Arf, Arf"... then let them out. Patti is a year and half, she'll gently paw the door and sometimes Bark. She taught herself how to Ask.
