Default Help me plz!

You've only had him for a week, just be patient. I got my pup when she was 6weeks and now she's almost 12 weeks, just be consistent and never punish your pup, they don't respond we'll to that. Positive reinforcement is the way to go! Good luck

"Treats" is whatever the dog thinks is rewarding. So yeah, chicken, cheese, beef, liver, different brands of cookies or other dog treats. Remember, they don't have to be big, just a taste will do.

As someone else mentioned, we just put our puppy out every 30 mins if awake. It was easier as I was at home full time, but it worked a treat. He fully toilet trained in 2 months. No accidents at all. Don't know if we were just lucky but that did seemed to work.

Try tiny squares of cheese! Our Bogie will do anything for cheese. Also if you can find dog cookies with peanut butter and break into tiny pieces. Peanut butter is another Basset favorite. Try smearing a tiny bit of either cheese or peanut butter on the treats you already have. That might work. Good luck!

for a 3 month old basset puppy that is not often enough if active and awake, 10-15 minutes top

Housetraining your Puppy
Quote:
A 12 wk puppy who is busy playing may need to urinate every 15-20 minutes, whereas a resting puppy might go for an hour, and a sleeping puppy can go 8 hours at night. Activity makes urine! Activity makes urine! Repeat this 10 times, slowly. This is a very important lesson for new puppy owners.



the one thing missing from most advice on housetraining is the importance of a schedule. and this schedule must incude feed, sleeping, play, and acess to water. If this is on a regid schedule whe the dog has to go becomes very predicatable which means it is much easier to manage and prevent accident. remember this a lack of accident is not an indication of housetraining. it is simply an indication that adequite management is in place to acutal begin housetraining.

I have never seen a basset pup younger than six mounth that I would consider housetrained and 1 year is more typical. IMHO basset are slower to gain the sphincter control necessary for true house training than typical. They truely can not hold it.

Our Frankie is 15 weeks now and when we mess up so does he. Others are bang on right - literally after play or water, no matter if he was just outside he needs to go out. It was impossible for us to take him out at this frequency so using our crate has been a godsend! As others suggested it may be wise for your sanity (and floors!) to consider crate training. I have read posts by Mikey T on this issue and it helped my nerves knowing that it is unrealistic to expect a basset to be house broken so early. I suggest you check them out as it may give you a new outlook. Good luck!

Sounds like we were lucky with Harry then. I was amazed he got it in 2 months top. Sounds like we've been spoilt!! I did read all the Basset books thinking why do they say it takes ages with Bassets? I just didn't realise Harry was an A* grade student! :-)) must remember this in the future when we have another puppy.

These are nice little treats. Molly likes them a lot, and so do the cats.
