Housebreaking Regression! Help!

I don't know WHAT is going on the last few days. Gucci has been with us for about 7 weeks and she quickly potty trained to the puppy pads and outside! Heck, she will go potty on command for me....

But the last few days, she has gone pee on the floor RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!

When before, she would run to the pad or go to the door?????

What the heck is going on? Is this some way to test me? She KNOWS I got very mad about it yesterday, but today she did it AGAIN!

Has anyone had this problem before? Just when you think you have them trained, they decide to rebel?

Suggestions? Comments?

Thanks
Kara

Looks like Gucci wanted your attention and she got it.. What she doesnt realize it is not the attention she was really looking for.

I had the same problem with Riley except when he wanted my attention it was usually when we had company. We would all be in the living room and he would look right at me and squat in front of everyone.. Laughing now thinking about it. Boy I forgot about that part of training, Monte is 16 weeks today I wonder if he is going to do something crazy now.

I agree with Olliesmom go back to basics, hopefully she will straighten out in a couple of days, I would not let her know you are mad because then she knows she got your attention.

Best of Luck

Tripp did the same thing. He went for the longest time with no accidents & then all of a sudden he did it in front of me a few times. I gave him a firm no & just going back over the basics & he's been great lately(hopefully)!!.

ahahahahhaha Kara!!! All this time I was jealous and spiteful of you that Gucci was so good at housebreaking while capote is being a lil demon!!!! Now I can laugh and say HA!

...j/k ...I feel your pain. Daily. Capote likes the carpet more than the pee pad.

I feel your pain Kara, I thought things were going so good with Sam and then, like Gucci, he started peeing right in front of me and expected to be praised and get a cookie like when he goes out side. It took a few correction with the "AWWWAwww. Out side" And he got back on track. Good luck and keep consistant.

It must be in the air, Smarty is doing the same thing. She did not have an accident in the house until recently and she only uses the pad if it happens to be in the right area.

Do Your Puppies Do This?

Do your puppies act like they are tracking dogs when they are out? Smarty has found 2 snakes !!!!!! , rolled in deer droppings , and has eaten or tasted every odd thing she can find. Is this a Hav thing? I am forever getting stuff out of her mouth.

Shew........so its not just me and Gucci! lol, I have been racking my brain trying to figure out WHAT I'm doing wrong? Am I treating her too much that she is losing incentive to use the pads? I don't know! But I went back to square one with her and am hovering over her and taking her straight outside or to the pad, depending upon where we are. I cut out the other treats and only treating her for potty in the right place. She seems to know I'm upset with her, she's giving me lots of extra lovin and cuddlin' lately! hehe, I guess that's the bonus to it all!

Last night, she just crawled up on my chest to sleep! She never does that!

As far as tracking goes, I haven't noticed it with Gucci, but we had to put up the chicken wire type fencing to keep her from going through the rod iron fence and this has also stopped the neighborhood Fox from getting in my yard and leaving his Poop there! Yay!

But this morning, the ducks were playing on my deck around the pool and I sent Gucci out there to chase them off! She sure LOVES chasing them away It's her "job" now, since the UGLY plastic owls my husband set out don't seem to curtail the ducks at ALL! lol

I did read somewhere that its good for dogs to have a "job" or purpose around the house!

YUP!!! That is exactly like mine. My guys not only roll in it, they eat the deer poop!! Anything abnormal on the ground, they find it. Our trees are now dropping some kind of fuzzy seed pod or something, and Logan eats it like its candy - then proceeds to throw up. - they dont get it!! My guys also know immediatly upon going out if deer, or skunk or other animal went onto our lawn, they go right to the area & roll in it.
