We have our new brown boy Rory and he has got it that you go outside for a poo.....but he likes to go outside and then come back in the house and have a wee.....anyone got any ideas !!!!He is so quick its hard to get him outside again.
He is very good at night and sleeps through with no problem and and goes out ok first thing for the toilet with no problem..... but I think he then forgets what he should be doing
We are spending ages in the cold in the garden with him but he just doesnt get it!!!!

Oh no poor you. The only thing I can think of it that you take him out every half an hour (to start with) armed with special treats and when he pees (use a word lie pee or toilet and reward. I am sure you will get loads of help with this.
Do you use a crate?

Absolutely what Barbara says; I know it's hard to start if he has the habit of running indoors but if you can get him used to a word used just for peeing and treat every time he gets it right he will get the idea. Was he allowed to pee indoors at the breeders, I don't mean in the puppy pen but elswhere in the house? Sometimes they just get into the habit and think that is the right thing to do, best approach is to make sure he always gets rewarded for going in the right place and never tell him off for getting it wrong. Again as Barabara has mentioned a crate, or as I prefer, a pen would be useful to help break the habit. He's just got a little confused poor lad Sad

Hi Thanks
He does go in his crate overnight and is fine and dry. We are taking him into the garden very regularly....he just seems a bit confused as we will stand outside for ages with him and then he will straight back in and wee.....he is very good in all other ways...travels perfectly in the car from day one and sleeps through the night etc ....just trying to work on this.....could be that the mop comes out afterwards for the kitchen floor and he likes to chase it !!!!!

Also, be sure to wash the areas/things he pees in/on, indoors, with a biological laundry detergent solution - it will " eat " up the oils in the pee, and take away the smell which in turn will make him less inclined to go back to where he can smell himself....not that you can smell it, mind, but he will be able to.... Cool

Oh, and by the way, congratulations on the new puppy! Smile

Another thing, don't stay outside too long with him, if he doesn't 'perform' take him back indoors then straight back out into the garden. Wink He sounds almost perfect by the way Very Happy

I suppose you've already tried this but just in case... Wink When you catch him peeing indoors (or at least just half a second before he starts!), you could just slip a cat litter tray (with some litter in it) under him. Before you go out with him for his (intended!) next wee, take the litter tray with you (still containing the litter he used previously) and put it on the ground in the garden. Let him inspect and sniff it, and of course if his own smell "inspires" him, even if only for a drop or two, congratulate him in the most enthusiastic way, repeating the chosen word for "pee", and then go back indoors (he must understand that this is not a "walkies" outing but a "strictly pee and poo" one. Laughing If you repeat the procedure several times, I think he should quickly understand what he is supposed to do...

Good thinking Nina Wink You could also try a puppy pad and put that outside where you want him to go.

When he is outside and does a poo what do you say or do directly after that before he runs back in?

Thanks
