My puppy Pann is driving me nuts with the potty training thing he pisses in his crate and lays down in it, yuck! I have bought a puppy playpen and set it up in the basement and put him in it when I go to work in the evening. I work from 12 midnite to 8 am. But now since I started doing that, he will piss and poo on the paper instead of outside and go outside too. I put this dog out every three hours like clockwork, when I'm home, I'm exhausted from not getting any sleep, and I'm about to give up and give him back to the breeder. My older boy was trained in 1 week and had 3 accidents since he was trained, he is one year now. Pann will be 5 months on the 2nd of January. I know patience and all that but what gives?? He has no hair now because I had to shave it all off, he was pissy everyday and had to have a bath everyday. Imagine washing and blowdrying 3 inch long hair EVERYDAY. I'm at my wits end here and my house full of carpet smells of pee. I just shampooed it today with a odor neutralizer. Praying for him to get the potty thing!! I love him but this dog acts like he has puppymill syndrome. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
