mom2twopups is a jewel in the roughmom2twopups is a jewel in the rough
Wow! I am reading thru this and now I am kind of nervous! You know we rescued Lucy at about 11 wks (as best we can guess) and she was NOT house broken. We have no idea of where she came from, or how she was treated. She's a pretty good pup, but I had NO idea that all of this needed to be learned by 8 wks. Now, I am wondering if she will ever be the dog that we were so hoping she would be. She is pretty good about chewing on her toys and we tell her NO when she tries to use US as chew toys, and she does sit, stay and lay down. She is getting really good on the leash (not pulling, just walking beside us) but the house breaking is becoming a PITA for me. She does pretty well if I am here all day and can take her out every 30 minutes to an hour, but we were gone for 2 hours today and she wet in her kennel. She is 3 months, so she should be able to hold it for approx. 3 hours and we were only gone for 2. I just kept thinking that she would "get it" one day, but maybe she won't, since we don't know how things were done before we rescued her

Aries is now 3 months. We got him at 10 weeks. He was already leash trained and sits on command. He's learning NO and doesn't chew on anything we don't give him to chew on. Now that warm weather is here we'll be working with him on stay and lay down. He loves to come so that's not an issue. Barking is another one I have to work with him on.
China is great with everything. If she's barking I say, "SHH" real hard and quick and she's done. SHH works with alot. She doesn't and never did chew on anything we didn't give her. She's a little FA but we feed them all seperately so I don't see that as an issue. It's only with the other dogs and not my kids or us.

wow. the original post kinda has me shakin in my boots. I got Chino at 6 weeks, and he is 7 now. He wont listen to me, and all he wants to do is sleep, eat and play with everyone else. I tried the whole distracting them when theyre messing in an unwanted area, but i think he has started becoming scared of me.. What can I do to move on with our housebreaking and get him warmed up?

Smile 11 month old pup..traning in progress..

we just got our "diesel" 2 days ago from a breeder, when we picked him up, he was in an outside cage with his 2 sisters. i picked him because he was the runt. so far he is a very laid back pup. hes getting the "no" down. and when he tries to chew on something hes not i hold his mouth closed and tell him no, then give him a toy. he really dosent chew on anything, but loves his toys. today was the first time hes been out around alot of people and other animals besides the dogs and the breeders. and he just walked around like he was in his own back yard.. as far as potty training, after the first day, if he makes it, he goes for the back door to be let out to go to the bathroom. im crate training him at nighttime. his crate is right beside my bed.. which im not sure if thats a good thing or not. we wake up around 5 in the morning to go out, then it takes a little coaxing and a little whining and hes back asleep. i dont think i could have asked for a better pup.. im just excited and a little nervous for the future. i hope i can live up to be the owner he needs. if anyone has any advice or suggestions please feel free to write. thanks for reading my novel!

Great post, don't know why I haven't read it before. To everyone who worries that they got their pup too late, or their pup is not doing everything listed in the post, don't worry, it doesn't mean that your pup will never be a wonderful, and well socialized, obedient dog, it just means it might take a bit more work, and that work is what often puts a strain on the owner/dog relationship. So don't worry, just be prepared for a little more resistance from your pup. Even adult dogs can be turned around from terrible situations, as anyone in rescue will tell you, but it's easier to curb bad behaviors in a pup than a an older dog who is set in his ways. I hope more people read this post before going out and getting a puppy, it really opens your eyes.

4 Month old training

So i got Malikah a week ago. she has a very good temperment, but likes to chew on things she isnt supposed to. I give her chew toys and rawhide bones but she isnt very intrested in them. she also likes to bite and nibble on my arm and toes. i am in the process of housebreaking her. she urinates in the house on ocassion. i bought woolite pet carpet cleaner and deodorizer but it doesnt seem to work. so if you have been thru this and have any advice please let me know.

I just got a 3 month old puppy this week from the humane society. Him and a few others were rescued at 5 weeks but he didn't make it out to be adopted until earlier this month. I'm trying my best to train him and he already knows his name and sit pretty well, and he comes sometimes. It seems to me like all day he's either eating, sleeping, pooping, playing, or chewing on something bad so when is the best time to sneak in a training session? I've tried doing it after we play, but he just gets too riled up to listen, and I've tried waking him up after he's been sleeping for a while but he'll just curl back up asleep wherever we are. He seems like he would be a really obedient dog so I'm excited to teach him I'm just not sure how to go about it. We're going to our first puppy training class on Monday but I could definitely use some tips from other puppy owners also.
