Re: Can't house train GSD - 11 weeks old
Ah, the joys of little bitty puppyhood!
A general rule of thumb is to take her out every hour, at least. When she "potties" give a praise command relative only to doing the deed. Like "good potty!" "good pee, good poo!" also something like "need to go potty?" when you take them out, so they connect "potty" with going outside.
After a play session, take them out.
If they potty in the house, take them outside. It helps connect the dots to "potty = outside".
And as Maggie said, if they go inside it's best to catch them mid-potty, take them out so they finish and praise.
It will take a little while, but she'll get it.
