potty training need help

I have two pit pups that are 7 weeks old. Ones a boy and ones a girl. They seem to get the idea when i take them outside and put them on the grass to go potty, but then i bring them inside and maybe 10 mins later there is a puddle of pee on the floor. Mostly to boy but starting to notice the girl is doing it too. I have the training pads for inside but they just think those are just something to tear up and play with. Can anyone help me, is there differnet ways to train boys and girls..just need help. havnt had little puppies like this since i was 8 and im 25 now so i dont remember how to do this anymore lol.

While mine are pups I take them out every 15-20 minutes or so.Pups have very small bladders.While they are playing they get really excited and need to pee quite frequent.So watch them alot while playing.As soon as you see them start sniffing around take them out.Also after eating or drinking anything.If you're able to not keep an eye on them for a while then I would put them in a crate so they have to just hold it rather than go anywhere in the house.

I wouldnt let them roam the house until they get it , if its 10 minutes after they come in maybe you arent staying outside long enough. It really just takes consistency alot of praise and baby voices when they go outside , when you see them do it inside a stern NO and I usually take them back outside although by this point they dont usually have to go. Do you have crates for them? when you cant keep an eye on them i would have them in there crates seperate would be best , they dont usually like to go to the bathroom where they sleep so having them crated makes it a bit easier for bathroom training , the minute they come out they go outside . they will catch on just takes patience. I find my girls were alot easier training then the boys were too, lol stubborn males.

Consistency and timing is everything. Young pups have to go very frequently. Right when they wake up, right after they drink water, right after they eat, random times during the day. If you are keeping inside when you do take them out, even if they go stay out for an additional 10 - 15 minutes to be on the safe side.. Especially true after they eat and have a good bit of water. All pups are going to vary on when they need to so its also going to be about figuring out your pup. Some go literally seconds after, others will hold a little longer, etc.

Crate training is going to also save yourself some headache, can be a little messy at the beginning if you miss the warning signs and they go in the crate at night however well, well worth it in the end.

and I would ditch the puppy pads! You never want to teach them it is ok to pee in the house anywhere. Potty is for outside NEVER inside. The only time I recommend pee pads is when you live in a place like NY city and live in a 40 story building and can't go outside at the drop of a hat. Then you have no choice. supervision is the key an you have to catch them to correct them, you cannot correct them after the fact they do not learn and understand like that. Use baby gates to keep them in the same room you are in. If you have a safe backyard kick them outside to play. the more time outside the easier it is to train them. Plus it is good for them to learn to be dogs and play not depend on you every second of the day. That can create separation anxiety. Crate training is also a must!

In particular, boy puppies have a harder time holding it then girls. Kane would go outside, come inside and play for a few minutes, and then as soon as that urge to pee hit, he'd squat a little and start squirting. Your pups are only 7 weeks old--they may or may not understand the concept of going outside (I'm leaning towards the latter as they are still very young), but even if they do understand it, it's a matter of them being able to hold it until they GET outside which is hard for pups.

SkyNet143 is an unknown quantity at this point
I recently adopted a 4mo old pup (keeping in mind I have never had a puppy/dog before), and i was told to initially train them on the pee pads. Now after I take her outside to pee, she comes back in and pees on the pad as well. The problem is, she is starting to miss the pad, and on occasion pees on the carpet right in front of us. Im afraid that training her to go on the pad has detoured her from going to the door when she wants to go out. What would be the best way to break her off of these pee pads? And should I keep them for when I let her out at 3am to pee from her crate?

Thanks!

I've never used the pee pads before so I may not have the right answer.But I would just not put them down anymore and when you notice her starting to sniff around then take her out.And as soon as she wakes up.If you don't have a crate I would invest in one of those as well.It will help in teaching her how to hold her pee/poo all night.
