Peeing.. and another thing.
He's 11 weeks, been crate training.. never goes potty in his crate.. I take him out every 2-4 hours and when I do, he will go pee (in the same spot).. then I walk around with him for about 5 minutes or until he poops.. and within' those 5 minutes, I'll see him kinda pee.. and/or he'll poop.. then we go inside, and like.. 5-10 minutes later, he's flippin' peeing on the carpet or something.. and not in the 'same spots' either just.. wherever he's currently standing at the moment. It's not a lot of pee.. maybe like 1.5 seconds of pee stream, but he stills pee's.. and I'm losin' my marbles cuz I take him out constantly and he pee's a buttload outside every time.. so I'm not understanding why he's peeing in the house literally 5-10 minutes after being outside and after peeing as much as he did! He doesn't whine to let me know.. he just kinda.. yep, playing with this toy.. now i'm gonna pee a little.. even though i was just outside.

Oh yeah, I always praise him when he potty's outside too. I usually give him a click (if i remember to bring it out with me) and treat (whenever I remember to bring it outside) with vocal praise or I also praise with a happy toned voice and petting, positive reinforcement if I'm treatless.. treats have been fading in an out.. :|

I'm not sure what to do.. :| The pee session on the carpet's too quick for me to tell him no and take him outside again, he never has to go outside when I take him out a second time.. he'll just lie there and stare at me.. or go eat grass/leaves.. <_< little butthole! Hahah.

Also, I don't know if this is a bad thing or not.. but I'm constantly telling my puppy NO literally at everything he does.. because everything he does isn't exactly good. Eating something random, NO. Chewing on the clothes, NO. Eating paper, NO. Trying to take something off the table, NO.. and he stops whatever he's doing.. he'll drop whatever is dangling out of his mouth if it isn't already 100% in his mouth (then I gotta dig it out).. but he always goes into the down position and puts his head down.. or he'll go into his crate (willingly) and lie down with his head down.. like he's ashamed.. then he goes back and does whatever I just said no too.. or he'll fall asleep. Lol.

I'm such a noob. ;__;

Lol, I don't mean to laugh, really I don't. It's just that ur post brings back such memories. All I can say is it does get easier eventually.
Welcome to the forum and being a proud puppy owner.

I can't help with the pee-ing unless he has a vet problem.

Remove ALL temptations you tell him No! for. Puppyproof like you would for a toddler. Put EVERYTHING away or out of his reach. Catch him doing something good and mark it -- either with a word (Good!) or a clicker.

Like Msmaria says: it'll get easier.

All sounds pretty normal to me :)

Although the Pee thing, maybe you should have him checked to make sure he doesn't have a bladder infection or something. Just to be sure. It may not be worth a special vet trip but the next time he is in for shots.

Every time we caught our chewing on something he wasn't supposed to, we would tell him no and replace it with a chew bone or something approved to chew on. I walked around with nylabones in my pockets.... Had one on the couch with me when we were sitting watching tv.

Just keep at it, it will get better. Ours is 4 months now, and starting to see a change. He has setbacks the strives forward. I'm trying to stay 2 steps ahead. It's tough.

My day is filed with telling my pup no as well. Except when she has something she shouldn't have she runs! It stresses me out. We go outside and play all the time and I am really trying to keep her from getting bored....but any free time she has is spent biting or trying to sneak things she isn't supposed to have...or biting.... Did I say biting?
That was completely unhelpful. Sorry :)

Welcome to the forum (and having a puppy :) ).

Have you had a chance to go thru the links on --> yet. Great tips to help with this.

And make sure there isn't anything the vet needs to look at.

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!

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....:eek:

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.

What, really? I don't think his winky is like.. hairy or anything but he does have like.. those few hairs.. at the tip. Ahh, that sounds weird to say.


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

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.
