Housetraining - how to stop all the accidents???

May 6, 2009 | By Markman2008 | 4 comments

Hello everyone...

When is it reasonable to expect my puppy to stop messing on the
carpet?


"Christmas" is a lab/collie mix and is almost 6 months old... I have
heard that if we clean the carpets to get rid of the smell, it might
help. I ordered some odor removal from www.pbgone.com today.


My vet said it was the best cleaner he could reccomend...

I also agree that crate training is the best way to go. I advise you to get the open wire type kennel so they can see what's going on and won't feel so closed in. Do not get one bigger than your dog needs....His stuffed doggie bed should fill the whole space, leaving no free space. I bought clips from the pet store to attach on the side wire of her kennel and 2 stainless steel dishes for water & dry food. I put these so that they are the right height for her when she stands up.

Hi, I agree with Duggank to crate train your puppy. I board dogs at my home and I don't trust a dog alone if they are under a year old. Not only from messing, but from chewing. Also, I don't think you can ever really get rid of the smell in the carpet. It may smell clean to you, but to the dogs it's not. I ended up taking out my carpet and laying down tile. You just have to be viligent and consistent. Don't lose hope, it will happen!
