Potty Training. HELP!!!

12 week old GSD....have been at it for 6 days w/ +++ praise and treats for going potty outside, then he comes in and pees on carpet 5 min later. When I take him out every 15-20 min...he takes a side trip to pee on carpet on his way to me and the door out! So exhausting, and hard for me to go down on knees to clean carpet 2x an hour (at least!). Am so exhausted, any suggestions?...Barb

Carry him out for the next couple of weeks.Try and stay out with him until he pees a couple of times.

Have you had him to the vet to check for a UTI?

Potty training was a huge issue for me too. I had to carry him all the way from my apartment, to the lift, and then outside. But the last time I could carry my dog with one hand was when he was 4-5 months old, so I had to think of something.

The catalyst was when I realised I have to correct him everytime he peed inside, right then and there AS HE PEED. I would say NO! NO MORE! firmly as he finished peeing. After a couple weeks of 'correcting him in the act,' he's never had accidents no more. There's no use in correcting after you find a pool of pee, it has to be DURING.

Crate him on and off and put leash on him and take him outside then praise and good treat.

Clean carpet..... try to close off carpet potty spot. Make it less appealing to walk on.

This is not rocket science and yes they are puppies and n need to understand what we are asking them to do. We have to be persistent .. People who say their puppy on pee'd a few times in the house did not have a magical puppy they had a great plan of attack. A 12 week old puppy should Never be out of sight therefore you should always be able to correct.

Thx Malibu...will keep him leashed and next to me in house...and correct in the act. That reminded me how it worked for me w/ my GSDs years ago. Guess I was influenced by all the recent reading of only focusing on praising positives. Last nite I decided to remove the inside dog water fountain...he must be getting too much water!
