Help potty training using porch not in grass
3 Attachment(s)
I have a 3 month old blue nose pitbull, I live in a mobile home with a big porch. I want the dog to be an inside dog but have a hard time training him he wants to go in the grass to poop but I don't want to take him to the grass because there is fleas because damn cats passing by my yard they spread them. So either he goes in the porch or in the pads which ever is easier to potty train. I just read not to scream at them when you catch them so not too sure what I should do. He sometimes just randomly starts peing he doesn't even smell around. And also has worms in his poop having a hard time getting rid of them. Any help will be appreciated im new in the forum and first time owning a pitbull. Thanks

I would just put him on a flea preventative and avoid the hassle...

Don't confine your pup to a porch. You need to be able to take him out to potty, as well as exercise and exploring with you. Get some flea medicine for the pup, and get him wormed asap. Take your pup to the vet if you haven't already, and talk to them about worming so they can help you out.

That was just for potty I will take him to the dog park as soon as it warms up a bit it's too cold outside and do they have a weak bladder at 3 months old? Since he just pees while he's walking randomly

Their bladder control is still developing at three months old but it should be able to hold it for a few hours at that age. Normally a pup will squat to pee. What did your vet have to say when you told them about this? Let the vet know about the worm situation ASAP. Worms are common in puppies but at three months old the worms should have been dealt with a long time ago. Just trying to help and let you know how important it is that you get the dog worm free.
I agree with the others, it's not like a cat that you train to use a litter box. You have a high energy dog that needs lots of exercise and then more exercise. Take the dog for a walk away from the flea infestation and let it do it's business there, Naturally, be responsible and clean up after it. It sound like you want to confine the dog to the house and porch. Wrong breed of dog for that.
As an aside, there is no such thing as a "blue nose" pitbull. Blue is just the color to describe a dogs black nose.
Would love to see some pictures of your dog when you get a chance to post some. Please post back and let us know how things are working out.

Thanks for the picture Frank. The pup couldn't be cuter! Love those ears and the white stripe down it's face. He's a looker for sure.

Is he neutered? Sometimes dogs can have a leaking issue after they are altered. If it's not medical, and what has the vet prescribed for the worms? How have you already tried to get rid of them?

I would suggest trying to dig out the grass an area and level it off with some small rocks or other easily hosed down material that can be sprayed and cleaned. Help designate a spot for your pup (adorable by the way) What I did to train my dog was as soon as he woke we would go outside to the same spot, each time. Then every half hour or when he moved we would go to the spot and do the routine. I would ask him if he wanted to go outside and then bring him to the door and have him sit and get his leash on and go. Every half hour, seriously. If he stopes playing with a toy or chewing for a while and got up, I did the routine and took him outside. He sits at your feet or is laying down and gets up, take him outside. When he goes the bathroom only (going out often he may not have to go) praise him and give so much love you would think he just shit a gold brick if someone heard you! lol Associate outside with leash and a word (bathroom, poops, business whatever you want to call it so when you praise yay good bathroom or whatever) and same location to go and sit and he will learn soon what you're expecting. My boy was able to be pretty reliable after week or two. ABSOLUTELY no unsupervised time out free around the house. Set up a pen or a crate so he does not have the ability to go when you aren't watching and taking him out every half hour.

Good luck :)
