My puppy is 4 months, and for a month has been really great about peeing outside. But lately he has been having accidents. Why such a regression?
Make sure you are cleaning with odor neutralizing pet cleaners with enzymes in them to break down the urine and pooh smell. Start training asap. The pup needs to know you are top dog in the house, so pick it up when it is going pee on the floor and immediately take it back outside until it finishes and then clean up properly. Any old pee or pooh spot is enticing to an animal saying hey you should pee here so proper clean up is essential.
I don't know but my puppy does the same thing!
My puppy pees in her area even when I am close by but not playing with her. She likes to be outside but I bring her in when I have things to do inside so she can be with the family.
Right as your puppy is doing this you need to look back at her and tell her in a very stern no nonsense voice NO! An put her nose in it. I know that this sound cruel but believe me it works every time. They just need to know that you are not playing around. Then you can pick her up and put her in the yard again. But make sure that you do this when it happens. If you wait and comeback and do this, the dog wont understand. Maybe you can put news papers down near the door that she goes out off another thing you can do is go to housetrainmypuppy.org good luck
You can do it the mean way by rubbing their nose in it or the nice way by purchasing a liquid called pet trainer and spraying it on a newspaper or square pad where you want her to go number one or number two.
You need tio start training if you don't like it
You should just potty train her. When she pees tell her no, and when she doesn't pee give her a treat, okay? If I stuff you up, do not yell at me,
