Welcome - another British poodle! Pebbles looks an absolute honey.

Constant watching in the house. As soon as she starts walking around sniffing the carpet you let her out, as soon as she wakes up, after she has eaten (may be a 15/30min wait before she needs to go after food, you just need to work that out on your own!) Treat her while she is going to the toilet... that way she knows what the treat is for. I also tought Ollie a 'toilet' command at this stage too, which is very helpful later on if you are in a rush and really need them to go! I use 'hurry up' so while he was going in the garden I would say the command and treat.

If you see her scratch the door again go OTT with the praise so she knows thats a good thing to do.

And if she is crate trained and you can't give her 100% attention she should be in her crate, and then straight into the garden once you let her out.

Hope that helps. Most of the time its just getting used to the signs, and as soon as you work them out its easier. You will still get accidents, just remember not to tell her off if it happens. Just pop her straight into the garden.

I only told Ollie off once, and that was because he was toilet trained... had been for a few months and just decided to go right in the middle of the carpet while we were all in the room with him. He never did it again after that!

I wrote a looong reply here yesterday, but then my phone died just as I was about to post it! Thanks for the advice Catriona! That's pretty much how we're doing it at the moment, no punishment for getting it wrong, but lots of praise and some tasty treats when she gets it right. We didn't use to give her treats for it, I think it makes all the difference as it's giving her a reason to do it outside.

Another mistake we've made is to relax about it after a few days of no accidents, she haven't had any for a couple of days now, but I know better than thinking she's housetrained!

Going OTT if she scratches the door again was a good idea too! When she did it I was just so baffled by it I didn't think to do that. It's good to have these things in mind!
