TrentL For my GSD the big thing was never leaving him alone ... I tethered him to me for the longest time or blocked him into the room I was in, if his nose was to the ground sniffing out we went... also every 2-3 hours (even through the night) out we go ... it didn't take long for him to figure out the house is not for peeing in ....

We had 2 accidents when he was little little but that's because I wasn't watching him.

dogfaeries I took my GSD puppies out constantly (maybe every 30-45 minutes) when they were little. There was never an accident, because they weren't given the opportunity.

And the ol' rubbing their nose in it makes zero sense. And completely unnecessary if you watch your puppy every second. Crate, tether, keep your eyes on them. Mine were all housebroken by 3 months old. They either went to the door, or bailed out the dog door on their own, but there were no accidents. And yeah, you have no life if you are taking a puppy outside every 30 minutes. It just meant I didn't watch as much TV.

MichaelE You need to ration food and water and observe how long it takes for the pup to eliminate to figure out what his schedule is. If you can do this it's half the battle to housebreaking.

There has to be a lot of motivation on your part too. Early mornings, late nights, and every time after eating or drinking anything or any amount. Rain, snow, hot, or cold, you have to go out with the pup and stay there until they go. No exceptions.

Rubbing their nose in it just makes them think that going potty is a bad thing. Then they will try and hide it from you or go when you aren't looking to avoid the punishment.

Did your mama rub your nose in your diaper every time you pee'd? Of course not. She taught you where and when to go.

Puppies aren't born knowing they are not supposed to potty in the house. You have to TEACH them what you want just like everything else.

middleofnowhere Sticking your dogs nose in urine or feces makes NO sense at all. This is an old old method from1950 and earlier.

Some pups take a long time to toilet train. My current one did. I still keep tabs on her at 9 mos old. It can be very frustrating. Take a deep breath &I a big dose of patience pills & know that house wrecks are the human's fault, not the dogs.

Restrict her/his freedom until this is under control. My pup spent a lot of time in her crate! It helped save our relationship...

Try this. Sometimes they go back a few steps (like kids) before the concept really sinks in.
