almost potty trained to accidents again?!
Hello, I’ve had my male 3 month GSD for over a month now. When I got him the first day, I started potty training him. He has been doing so well. Going to the door and sitting, barking and stuff. He did have a small accident here or there but I really thought we were on the road to success. The past week or so he hasn’t even been going to the door. I’ve noticed he just sniffs around a lot and I just know to take him. I’m not sure why he doesn’t go to the door anymore? He’s been having accidents a lot more as well. We were just at my neighbors who has the exact same townhouse layout as I do and he usually goes and sits at her door to be let out but he just decided to pee right at the door. I took him out and he finished doing his business then I brought him back home, he walked around the island, went right to his crate(which is literally right next to the door) and before I could even get my boots off he started peeing inside! His crate whining has also gotten worse too. We ignore him and once and a blue moon we look at him, give him a firm “no” and continue on. My mom sleeps all day because she works nights and his whining during the day while i’m at school really frustrates her. He whines and howls more and more. My mom thinks it’s because I ‘baby’ him. All I do is keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn’t get into anything he shouldn’t or potty where he shouldn’t. I play with him, do all his training (which is going great so far) and my mom feeds him once and a blue moon to bond a bit with him. My gsd has become very attached to me because I spend way more time with him than my mom. Please help. The crate whining and pottying have to improve, my mom is getting extremely upset. What should I do?
