Q. My nine weeks old puppy keeps peeing inside the house but not outside, is this normal?
A. Remember that your pup is just a tiny little baby. He does not know the rules of the world, and needs to be taught through calm, patient, positive guidance.
You should be bringing him outside so often that he doesn't have the chance to potty indoors. It is up to you to keep the puppy successful. Bring the pup outside at least every 30 minutes, plus immediately after eating, drinking, training, playing, napping and sleeping. Make sure each time you bring him outside, you stay outside for at least ten minutes to give him a chance to really potty. Immediately AFTER he finishes pottying outdoors, reward him with praise and treats.
If he urinates indoors, do not scold him or you run the risk of making him afraid to pee in front of you, which will make potty training so much more challenging, so DO NOT SCOLD.
A. Enroll your puppy in a puppy class local to you. It helps teach you all you and your dog need to know in it's entire life. It'll also help socialize your dog and get him ready for the world. They can give you potty training advice.
Dogs who eat weird things may be lacking nutrients in their food or are just curious. Make sure by going to a pet store and asking an associate if you're on the right food.
