I have a 13 week old puppy that came into our family last week (6 days ago). I've successfully trained a few other dogs in my life, but it has been a while since I've had a puppy. Our puppy soiled a spot in our home on the first day and I thoroughly cleaned the spot with an enzymatic cleaner . I pay particular attention to the puppy and quickly take her outside if she looks like she is ready to go potty. I always take her to the door, say "go pee", ring the bell with her nose gently that is hanging from the door, take her out and lavish her with praise/treat when she executes a pee outside. As I said it has only been a week but I expected her to occasionally go to the door or in the area of the door when she needs to go, but she continues to go back to the spot in the house she initially soiled on day one without ever indicating that she needs to go by going to the door. I've read a lot about how smart these dogs are so maybe my expectations are too high for her only being here 6 days. She almost always produces when I take her outside. Over night she is getting better about relaxing in the crate and if she makes a whimper I will take her out and she does her business. I restrict her water food by 6 pm and she is down for the night by 10:30 or so. I had hoped that by restricting her water/food early she would not need to take too many overnight trips out to potty but last night she needed to go out every 2.5 hrs or so. I'm sure some training guru's will be along to tell me what I'm doing wrong, so I look forward to suggestions.
