|Usmccasper||Ok so here is an update!!! I have been taking her out every 20 min or so, after playing, after drinking water. After she eats I crate her for about an hour while her food settles, then I take her out again and so far I've gone a whole week with no accidents if she needs to go then she goes to the door! NOW she is going to the door and barking!!!! Hallelujah!!!!!! She is 16 weeks now and is doing great! I should of done this from the bit go but my lazyness got the best of me. Now I know for my next GSD ( which will be in a 1yr and 6 months)|

This is exactly the way we did it. Also they would get nothing to eat or drink after 10pm. Took about two weeks to train this way. Once they got the hang of it I leave water avail. 24 hrs and they get free roam of the house at all times and never have accidents.

|Neko||I think that 14 weeks is a bit young to bee frustrated? Some take longer, much much longer. Just make sure you take the pup out after meals, nap and play. Every hour at least!|

|Usmccasper||Ok so so far I have been doing some tethering and some crating during the day and clicker training when she goes potty and no accidents so far...I just took her out now and when I walked towards the door she got there before me and started scratching on it (something she never did before) so I am relived that there IS progress. thank you to all of you for your advice and support. Good to know that there is a helpful community out there!|

|HOBY||I agree with the tethering on a leash and no roaming in the house. Sounds like it might be bad timing thing also. Some things I have done in the past seemed to help. Assuming there are no health problems and the crate is near the door. Open the door to go out before you open the crate. Once you open the crate get her out of there pronto even if you have to carry her. Have you tried to collect her inside accidents and take them outside to the same place? It is kind of funny but I always called out score when things worked out right.|

Also, how long are you out when she goes and what kind of water consumption does she have? You can't rush outside sometimes. I would also increase the amount of times you're taking her out until she gets the idea potty outside is only option.

This caught my attention, she does know what you want, she's going to the door.
When I am potty training pups I keep them confined to a smaller area by the door to allow me to get them out quicker. After a vet has ruled out any medical cause try keeping her tethered or crated. Interrupt play after about 10 mins with a happy 'lets go pee' and move the party outside. Some pups get so involved in play that they forget until it's urgent and then depending on the size of your house, the door is just too far away. Dogs are all different, they learn and develop at different rates. There is no set schedule and although 'most' pups should get in a few weeks, that isn't a rule. Accidents should be expected for the next few months, they will just become infrequent.
