How Do You House Train an Impossible Puppy – Tips Suggestions Desperately Needed ?

Home gardening tips | 8 Comments

Q: We have an 11 week old puppy. IMPOSSIBLE to house train. When you walk him, he will wait until he returns home, then dirty in the house. It’s 50/50 if he will use the paper on the kitchen floor. He will be let out in the garden regularly, but still dirties the house. ANY IDEAS,TIPS? PRODUCTS?  Will he be an impossible dog to stop being dirty in the house? We have had the puppy since he was 6 weeks old, This is NOT my first puppy. I am quite aware what’s involved in raising a puppy. However this pup is impossible in as much in the six weeks I’ve had him, he’s not showing any interest in being paper-trained using the garden area to mess in or now that he’s being walked to do so when he’s walked. ~ THANK YOU TO THOSE SO FAR WHO OFFERED UNSARCASTIC FRIENDLY ADVICE, The crate idea is useful not one I had used in the past ~ All ideas very much appreciated — I know he’s still a baby, but same is true he’s old enough to have routines put into practice. My previous and other current dogs did show some interest in at least being paper-trained by this age.

A: "Impossible" puppy? If he’s only 11 weeks, I’m not sure why you’d be saying that. When it comes to housetraining, 11 weeks is nothing at all. When you get a puppy, you need to be ready for a long, messy process. If you’re getting this frustrated with him, and he’s only 11 weeks old, I’m not sure how you expect this "having a puppy" thing to work out. Many puppies are not reliably housetrained until 4 to 6 months of age, and it could even be longer than that; some breeds are notoriously difficult to housetrain. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and have a pup that will train lighting quick, but for the most part, everything you describe is completely normal for many pups that age. Welcome to the joys of puppyhood.
