Default She Goes At Night

SO i have a one and a half year basset hound that is potty trained when we are home. (yes i know it sounds funny) but then when we leave or go to sleep she just goes inside. we used to crate train her but she would go in the crate and it just felt wrong to leave her in there sitting in her own pee and poop so instead we have confined her to the kitchen and dining room area which has a stair case leading to upstairs. well needless to say when i come home shes peed and pooped on the stairs. i dont know what to do about this problem. we take her out at night right before bed and no matter what she pees in the middle of the night by the door. ive woken up a few times when she was doing it and she doesnt whine or anything. Im a full time college student and me and my fiance both work. PLEASE HELP! im tired of waking up in the middle of the night and stepping in a cold puddle of pee. any suggestions??

was the crate too big for her? The crate should have been just big enough for her to stand up, lay down and turn around in. If it's too big then they will potty in the crate.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

1) gate her in the room with you so you can hear her get up if she needs to go out
2) or get a larger crate, put a nice cushy bed in it, and let her sleep in there.
3) use the crate when you leave
4) Use a baby gate to restrict her access to the stairway
5) Teach her how to ask to go out. Each time you are going to go out with her, sit her at the door, and in a happy excited tone of voice, ask her "Do you want to go OUT?" smile. Try to encourage her to woof, or touch the door with her paw. Get her all exited and bouncy, and then open the door and toss out a cookie for her to run after.

Basically, use your head. Figure out ways to REINFORCE her for going outdoors, eliminating outdoors, and going to the door to ask out. HELP her get happy and excited when she goes to the door by playing fun little games, and encouraging her to get happy when she is near the door.

Prevent her ability to soil the house when you can. Use confinement and supervision to your advantage to help the dog do the right thing.

Good luck.

I guess we all been there at some point, puppy training.
Back to basics: Lots of praise, give the puppy about 30 min. outside after eating to evacuate. Also lots of praise when they do it outside. I think supervision would be the key also.
One thing that I did was that I read a lot of puppy training. That help a lot not only to the puppy but to me as well.

Default positive potty training

I had lots of trouble with my Casper when we tried to potty train him. Like many I had learned to spank and punish when I saw a mess, and that just wasn't working. I suggest you visit The lessons are easy and positive on everything.
Casper was just a little over a year old when I started using these lessons and he spent most of his time in a kennel or outside on a chain because I couldn't risk him messing up our floors or tearing up our furniture. (Casper is a pit bull mix and they tend to not fear doing their business in thier bedding so we did a lot of cleaning up after him .) But it only took two weeks following Dove's techniques to be able to let him be on his own while I am at work and not be afraid of what I will find when I get home.
Your puppy might take a little longer to train because puppys simply cannot hold it that long, but there are some great techniques in there for puppies too.

I trained mine by going by the Training article on this site. You have to go to the information page and there are links to the training. Sorry I don't know the exact page. I use this for everything but it is really good on potty training.

I don't think an 11-week old puppy is being "aggressive." I think he's playing, as all 11-week old puppies do.

I also HIGHLY support neutering dogs, but I would never suggest getting an 11-week old neutered. Wait a few months.

I take him out every couple to 3 hours.
He can go for nearly 2 hours being on his own , as he will need to go for longer periods when i recover from a broken ankle.
But he always seems to get hyper and then that's when his biting starts at first i did not think it would last that long , but he really is a very dominating dog, of which we are trying to get him out of that.
My wife is the more experienced of the two of us even thought this will be my 4th dog.
But it really is stressing us out as he is a truly gorgeous looking dog, he enjoys his walks, even though he tries so hard when people are just walking by to be very sociable, but not every one is animal orientated.
But his biting is beginning to get out of hand
is time to starting puppy obedience training (6 or 7 week old )
if you wanna learn more aggression in puppies, this is a good site:http://www.dogobediencetrainingtip.c...py_biting.html

Patience is a virtue when it comes to housebreaking a dog.

Try this method: Have newspapers on the ground next to the door to backyard. Every time you see him/her starting to do something immediately put him on the newspapers. He will learn to go on the news papers by himself. As soon as this happens take the news papers away. He will go to the door wondering where the newspapers are. When you notice this put him outside and watch him. If he goes outside praise him like crazy.
