How do I potty train a 5 month old puppy?
she is a 5 month old shih-tzu (if i spelled that right)
I don't know exactly but here are some tips..
If your dog goes to the bathroom on the carpet or inside at all do not scold her or tell her "Bad DOG!" unless you are catching her in the act. Otherwise they get confused on why they are in trouble.
Reward her for good behaviors such as going to the bathroom outside.
If she pees on the carpet be sure to get a product that completely gets rid of the smell because when a dog smells their pee on the carpet later it makes them want to go again in the same spot. (I learned some of this when I worked at a pet store.)
That was a good answer my kayla michelle. I wrote a hub on this - http://hubpages.com/hub/Howtopottytrainyourdog. You have to be patient and consistant. Catch them in the act and take them outside. Other tips are in my Hub.
two words: confinement and schedule.
Try getting a baby gate and keeping the pup in a specific small area, part of the kitchen for example. Put down piddle pads. Feed and water on a strict schedule. early morning feed puppy and allow water, pick up all uneaten food and water. ten minutes later take puppy outside and just wait for mother nature to take it's course. When puppy relieves itself outside Praise Praise Praise. Afterwards puppy may have the run of the living room or family room for 1/2 hour. Then back to the kitchen to a blanket for a nap. Food and water two hours later,pick up food and water wait 10 min, take puppy out, potty, praise, praise, play, nap. food, potty, play, nap. that is your life for a week or so. Keep puppy confined to small area, even at night until it is asking to go out. Stay on schedule.

My daughter's dog (a terrier and almost 7 months old) pees everywhere. I know why - she has been caged during the day when my daughter is at school and my daughter's dad refuses to 'do' anything with the pup.Which, by the way, is a clever and responsive animal.Anyway - she's been allowed to pee on...

My husky goes to the bathroom on my new carpet constantly. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. One time she'll go out the doggy door and later she may decide to go on the carpet. It's very random and FRUSTRATING!Any ideas?
