lalachka One more thing. Since for me it also takes 5 mins to get downstairs I also had the same issues. But a few times I caught him while peeing and he stopped. Didn't let it all out, so I took him down in 5 mins and he let the rest out and I praised a lot.

lalachka I'm on a third floor and not home most of the day. I've used pee pads at first and then outside. I didn't have problems, just one day, when I figured he can hold it enough I picked up the pads and took him out. He had a few accidents. I praised outside and it worked well.

Also, if he's comfortable peeing on a wooden floor then the concrete isn't much different. He's having accidents because he's not sure where he's supposed to go. Pee pads would help with that.

pr3dict Yeah I give her water bowls at work and she takes a few sips and then *flip* and jumps in the puddle it makes lol.

My2shepherds Not sure if this is a stupid suggestion or not but what about puppy pads outside. Prevents too much contamination I would think...??? I am sure others will have opinions on this...

Also how often do you give her water?
My Eden is mostly black also so she is not too fond of the sun either... lol and she likes her water bowl better (for splashing) than her pool or the hose....

As far as water goes I have always kept water down for the girls but mine are not in an office environment either so I am not much help there. At home I kept them tethered to me or crated if I was moving around and not able to be "on top" of them. Which helped to head off too many accidents as I could take them out as soon as the sniffing began. This became quite interesting when I got Eden because she is only 6 weeks younger than Athena... LOL Wish I could help more for the water question but I do not want to advise you wrong.

My2shepherds I know for my girls at 9 1/2 weeks it was constant potty breaks literally every 30 min. They "tinkled" every time they moved it seemed... be patient she is REALLY young... I would keep up the crate time with a little play right after potty breaks (frequent potty breaks)... LOL It will get better soon...

pr3dict I do have a crate at work with me. She is in it right now. Usually the day goes like this.

Wake up
potty break
eat breakfast
play
potty
car to work (about 10 minutes)
run around and hug everyone at work (Which at that point sometimes she does a pee while playing like she doesnt even squat)
crate for 1 - 2 hours (she sleeps)
potty
play a little
crate for another 1-2 hours
potty
play a little
car ride home (about 10 minutes)
potty
dinner
play
potty
nap time where ever she drops
play
potty
bed (crate)


I do the bell thing at home even though she absolutely hates it. Everytime I bring her to the bells and try and touch her paw to it she tries to back away and she whines but as soon as we ring it and i let her outside shes all right down to business with going to the bathroom.

I don't think I could crate her all day here as thats about 8 hours of crating which is a lot. Today she hasnt had too many accidents (she hasnt had a pee accident) but she will be in the middle of playing and all of a sudden just squat, and she hasnt had that much water at all.

On another note, she does have giardia so she has not been eating as much as I think she should be. She's 11 pounds and only eats about 1 pound of raw meat a day. Shouldn't she be eating more like 2 pounds a day?

Oh and she is 9 1/2 weeks old.

AnyaGSD crate for sure. also maybe bells at your desk if she is out. we did this on the back door and it works great. but at that age by the time she needs to go and the time to get her outside . . . disaster will happen every time. for now. I'd take her out every hour for a while just to let her go before she has to

HarleyTheGSD How young is your pup?
I suggest using a crate at work.
