House Training

by Ralph Cole
(Bentonville, AT, USA)

Two male puppies almost 5 months old.
Not pure. We got them because of an accidental pregnancy, ie no papers.
Father unknown, likely retriever or Dane.
We have had many dogs over the years, all picked up on going outside quickly. A few weeks and only the occasional accident.
These are impossible, sometimes outside then immediately again when back and every other scenario in between. Also no favorite spot. A y place will do.
This normal? Something we need to do?
Help??? Smile

House training

I don't quite understand what you are saying about the house training.

You need to crate these dogs when you aren't around so they don't have accidents. Dogs won't usually soil their crates. When you come home, take them immediately outside.

You need to watch them when they are in the house. Keep them contained in a room with you wherever you are. Keep them leashed to you if you must. If you see them circling or indicating they are about to do their business, take them outside and tell them 'good boys' when they do and bring them back inside.

Make sure they are on a routine of business first thing in the morning, and then every couple of hours, their walks at noon, after work and before bed. Routine is important.

Here is an article although your dogs are five months it will still apply:
