New Puppy potty training ideas

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Our hamister died on sunday so we went to the pet store to buy another one but ended up adopting a dauchsaud. He is 10 weeks old we think. I read they are hard to potty train. Yesterday he made 5 messes in the house. Two right after I took him out side. We don't hace a fence so I have to take him out myself. Does anyone have any tips on house breaking him. It has been 15 years since I have had a puppy and I forgot what it was like.

    The paper towel idea sounds like it might work. I know nothing about dachshunds.
I know when I was younger my aunt had one, and he was house broken.

    That is a good idea with the papertowel. I will try that.

    We cleaned up some of our dog's 'liquid messes' with a paper towel, and then staked the towel down in the yard so that she had a place to smell that 'told' her where it was acceptable to go.

    Good luck! Everything I know about that breed, you may never get him house broke. They are cute, but just don't seem to know how to hold it! I wish I knew something to help, I find large dogs are easier to train. Best of luck! Sorry!
