Help! We have a 13 week old mini poodle puppy (had him 3 weeks) and been using the crate for training but I have let him out to run around in the kitchen (tile floor) and I feel like I am watching and taking him out a lot but he still has accidents. This has happened a few times with me but mostly it happens when I have tasked the kiddos to watch him (ages 18, 14, 10, 8, 8, and 6). We are all trying to be on the same page and I try to be in charge the majority of the time but I have to have others help. I work nights and need to get some naps during the day. If Rufus goes outside then should I limit the free time to 15 minutes or so and then crate? I just feel like he is in there more than I want but am unsure how to keep a closer eye on him. I have read tips and try to follow advice but am unsure how to have this work out better. What age are they usually better about potty training? And have I ruined it because he has an accident usually one time per day?
