I've put a bell on the door too, so I'm teaching him that and today he reached up and touched it for the first time. It was after I got over to the door, but hey, he's doing it.
I use "Out" on my floors, but you can use a vinegar solution. I don't think it really matters what you use or if the scent is there. It's more a matter of learning not to do it inside.
I also used a belly band on Nonny for a period of time to keep him from going on the floor. It helped a LOT! He didn't like soiling the padding I put in it, and I kept it snug to his belly/skin. It didn't stop him completely from peeing inside rather than letting me know he needed to go out, but it did help with accidents on the floor. And, like I said, he didn't like to soil it next to his skin, so he would hold it a little while when he was wearing it. I also used it in the kennel at night deter any accidents there. Now he's kennel trained and I don't use it at night. In fact, I haven't used it in about a week. Anyhow, great $15 investment from walmart.

|AngelaA6||I usually clean the spot with folex (animal safe) and then spray it with vinegar as a deterrent. My dad also is a carpet cleaner and injects the pad with something... haha sorry I never learned what it was.|

He's had a few accidents this week.. same stuff. I'm just hoping he grows out of it. Hahah. He gets taken out literally every 3-4 hours, after he's been playing hard, 10-15 minutes after he eats/drinks.. consistency, consistency. We can do it, guys. >_<
Keep me updated on your progress! Good to know I"m not the only one having to wipe up pee pee.
OH! Is there a specific brand of something I can use to clean up accidents? Since dogs usually potty where their scent is and I've read regular cleaners can't cover up that scent and/or are harmful to the animals.. hmm.. any suggestions?

I'm right with you on this one!! I just got my 3 month old pup last week and I've experienced the same thing. Glad I'm not the only one and I'm glad to see other people's advice that I can benefit from.
We are crate training as well and the beginning was tough. We had to time everything with the quickness!! But every time we let him out of the crate we always say potty and take him outside and his does the duty.. He's use to it now so we time it roughly every 3-4hrs. And we're trying to push it longer of a wait as he grows. But he does have accidents here n there when we're not fast enough to take him out after being crated.
We're in this together! And hopefully it'll get better

Honestly, we're all over the place with the potty training. He's getting it, slowly. Nonny does the same as yours- comes inside right after going out and pees. And he goes to the door and pees on the rug there. Occasionally, he'll sit at the door and look at me. That's his cue. Mostly, he just goes over there and does his business. It's frustrating! But at least he's not just stopping and peeing wherever he is at the moment. I haven't been able to catch him in the act more than a couple of times, so like you too, I'm not getting much opportunity to correct him.
I think they all go through a rough patch shortly after getting the hang of going outside to pee and poop. I still can't completely trust my 1y/o Chi to NOT pee in the bedroom if I let him sleep with me, but I know he can hold it b/c he holds it in his crate all night. He is reliable otherwise and has learned to hold it until we go out again, which is quite frequently.
I think you're just in that rough patch and it will all come together eventually if you keep at it and be as consistent as you can

|Botox||My puppy did that from about week 11 to week 12, she's only 15 weeks now all I did was put her back in her crate for about 5 min after I brought her in, then I took her back outside and she peed / pooped more then praise. Only took about a week to conquer.|

what, i'm supposed to trim that off or something? I honestly don't think our vet like.. looked at this man parts the first time.

Our is our first male. I was scolded by the vet that we should be keeping his winky trimmed up of hair and clean or he could get an infection. I had no idea....
Of course my wife looks at me and says "Your job buddy".
One thing we have worked very hard at and it is crucial that each of you are consistent with the dog. What you let him do, the commands you give. Even down to very subtle things.
I tell ours "go potty" when we get outside, he goes and pee's in the same spot every time. Then I say "go poop" and he runs out toward the back of the yard to do that.
Ours had a bought where he wouldn't pee outside and come in and pee 5-10 minutes later. It's all about timing and consistency. We blocked off 3/4 of the house and he never left our site.
Basically I'm trying to tell you to hang in there. It will get better. Don't show your frustration to him. Patience weed hopper. I keep telling myself this as well.

We have 2nd round shots coming up this weekend, so I'll throw the pee pee thing at the vet, lol. But yeah, stressful.. and my boyfriend isn't any help either since he's at work all day and we aren't 100% on the same page of what the dog knows, what he shouldn't be doing, etc.. I'm basically training a puppy and a 25 year old dude. sigh! Lol. but if you all say it gets better.. thank godd. Just a few more months I guess!
and nope, haven't read the links.. it's just the little wee wee he does randomly even after he's done his business outside. Such a weird dog. :| but I'll take a look at it and see if there's anything. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum (and having a puppy ).
Have you had a chance to go thru the links on --> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...uppy-cage.html yet. Great tips to help with this.
And make sure there isn't anything the vet needs to look at.
