Please advise for potty training
I have a 12 week old german shepherd. We got him saturday so it's been about 5 days. He seems really bad with the potty training. The first two nights there were no accidents in the crate (there is a divider to make it small enough just to lay down). But now he's been having accidents inside the crate. As for outside the crate he is constantly having accidents, mostly with peeing. I take him out practically every time he starts sniffing around, but the problem is about half the time he's just sniffing to explore. I have a bell by the front door to help him tell me he has to potty, but I've only had that for 2 days, he doesn't seem to like it. He is sometimes reluctant to go outside, but it's getting better. He doesn't seem to pick one place to go potty, even though for the first 3 days I only took him to one single spot. He potties when he goes out, but he just doesn't seem to get that he's not supposed to potty inside. I always catch him and I always make a loud noise to stop him, immediately take him outside to finish (though sometimes he doesn't even after 30 min out), but still he continues to just go whenever and wherever he feels like... Please help with any suggestions.
