  1. Training Tips and Advice
    Our Duke is 18 weeks old and for now we've decided to solely potty train him indoors using a potty pad tray. We are having a few issues with this that I'd like some feedback on. His setup is attached. We have his crate attached to an x-pen. A gray mat covers the carpet to protect it from any...
  2. Training Tips and Advice
    Hi all, New here and getting my little 8-week old boy, Ollie, on Saturday. I have been reading lots of info and feel that I have a training plan sorted out (crate training, x-pen, chew toy training, consistency, etc, etc.), but trying to firm up indoor potty training options. Our breeder has...

    So something funny happened this morning. Not ha ha funny, but more like peculiar. I feel like Kipper needs to be excited to poop! Initially the backyard seemed to not interest him and he just wanted to be taken for walks so he could potty. But by now, for the most part, when we take him out...
  4. Training Tips and Advice
    My friend recently rescued a 2 y.o. small dog (not a Hav). He's doing better with peeing in the right area but he's a leg lifter. I think she's currently taping some potty pads to low cabinets but is seeking a better long term solution. Any reviews of the rascal dog litter box? I would have...

    Roger's now 12 weeks old; we bought him 9 days ago and he's been just wonderful. The breeder took him a long way: happy in the crate, sleeps the night (generally), and, until the last 2-3 days, has been examplary on the accidents. Suddenly, he's started having accidents 1-2 times daily for no...
  8. Training Tips and Advice
    Okay, so I'm trying to house-break my two puppies. I crate them at night (and they've been doing good with that) then as soon as I wake up I let them out. Usually they go potty and then they come inside to eat. I set down the food/water, let them go at it for about 15 minutes, then I pick it...
  9. Puppy Area
    Hello - I have a puppy that is very nearly 7 months old, and has much success trick training, crate training (he slept through the night at 10 weeks) and will ring chimes to go outside. The problem is that he wants to go out about once an hour to pee (more often if he's drinking more or...
