"With each of our puppies, we built a "puppy palace" (named by my granddaughter) out of pet gates/barriers. It was approximately 5' x 5', with the barriers lashed together with sturdy zip ties. We bought a cheap linoleum remnant…"

"If she is housebroken and not super destructive (i.e. doesn't eat baseboards, lol) you might think about gating her in the kitchen or another area where she can't do much harm if she does happen to have an accident or chew something. (Area…"

"She's still pretty young so I think you can work with her.  You could try leaving her for short random periods of time (10 minutes 15 minutes, 5 minutes, etc.) and gradually increase it). Always tell her "I'll be back." Over…"

Puppy HATES being left alone....

Hi!Elly is 4 months old and I have been lucky to be home with her this summer to train etc and I have not had to leave her for long. Every now and then I crate her if I have to run out for a quick errand but I've never left her for over 2 hours. I'm afraid I've created a bad habit now and she absolutely can't stand to be alone and I could put a sirloin steak in her crate and she still won't go in without a fight!

Lisa & Sunny replied to Sookie's discussion General house training question
"Yes, that is exactly what my puppy (5 months old) is now doing!  She used to ring the bells, now she just stares at me.  Sometimes she jumps up on my lap to get my attention, then goes to the door, sits down, and fixes me with that stare."

"Elly gets hot in there too. Someone from this blog suggested a cooling mat for the crate. I'll look into it. Thanks everyone!"

Karen & Jackdoodle replied to Sookie's discussion General house training question
"When you think about it, most dogs who are bonded to their owners, which I think includes most doodles, are usually wherever you are anyway, and most solidly housebroken dogs will tell you when they have to go. All of my dogs have let me know by…"

"It does help, and it's a great idea. You also brought up another subject I forgot to mention, which is using a "command" word or term for "do your potty business". I always said "Good pee-pee!" and "Good…"

Laurie, Wally & Charlotte replied to Sookie's discussion General house training question
"I used treats to train my two to go back into the house after they did their business. I'd take them out, and I'd say, "Hurry up," when they were peeing. Immediately after, I'd say, "Inside," and we'd run back…"
