I've got a new golden retriever. Can someone teach me what is the best way to toilet train her? It has been pooing and urinating all over the house. I've heard you cannot place its 'toilet' near its sleeping place. Thank you
My dog got the hang of going potty right away. Of course a pup will have its accidents. Heck, my dog has accidents still when he is not feeling well (which is rarely).
As soon as I brought my Sharpei home (one of the most stubborn breeds!) I took him outside for a while until he went to the bathroom and got him use to hearing "Need to go potty" "Need to go outside" which he knows quite well now. As others have said, routine routine. You can't get mad at the dog for not doing its business where you want to. Maybe try some of those training diapers or the pads? If the dog makes a mess in the house put its nose to the mess (not in it) and say firmly "NO". My dog knows when he's done something wrong/bad when I say no. He actually shys away and bows his head down.
