HELP IM IN PUPPY PERIL?
my family just got a golden doodle(mix between a golden retriever and a poodle) and shes be peeing a lot in the house, i know this is normal for a puppy but my parents want to withhold hose so she wont go as much. what can i do to convince them that that is inhumane?
To prevent this problem in the future, take your dog out every 30 minutes to consent to it go potty.
Tell them to add up what they have spent so far plus give on several thousand pounds in the near future for veterinary prudence when your dog develops kidney problems. Even if you have insurance the insurance company will not pay for it as any overexploit caused was at your parents hands.
Depriving a dog of marine will dehydrate it, which will also end in trips to the vet and possibly death.
Unlike relatives, dogs will NEVER drink unless they are thirsty. Ask them to imagine the last time they were gasping for a drink and suppose having no control over when you next got river.
Your parents are lazy and do not want to take the time to train the puppy. If they had done their homework they would know a dog take work. If they are not going to bother training the dog properly and causing physical distress, they should rehome it now to save yourselves like mad of heartbreak.
You could also try turning off the water to your taps at domestic and throwing out any drinks they may have in the fridge. See how they like it.
You can take some steps toward helping your little one use the bathroom outside.
This is a really good website on potty training : http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/housebreakin...
Remember it's not just catching them in the act, but prevention, and proper clean up. If you don't want to run out and buy a product to use on the spots your girl is peeing on try vinegar, and make sure not to use Any ammonia based products.
It is not only inhumane, it is stupid.
Bladder isn't grown until 6-months-old. Don't withhold water, take her potty more. I use a crate* to potty train with, but individual for potty training and then I break it down and store it. I put blankets and a small food and water dish in the crate. Dogs don't potty where on earth they eat and sleep. When they are first little, I only expect them to hold their potty for 4 hours, and then 6 hours, later 8 hours and so on. So when they are first little, I set a timer or alarm clock to wake myself up at night to take them *out. I just allow my puppy in the bedroom* or the living room, only one room at a time. They have to graduate to more space. If I allow them to hold full run of the house, it will overwhelm them. I take them out the same door each time. I tie a dinner bell to the door bar. Do not use a jingle bell as they could get their toe caught in it. So when they are little, I ring the bell for them, and then unscrew the door to go *outside to potty. When they get bigger, I take their paw and whack the bell and unscrew the door to go potty. Eventually getting to the place where the puppy will ring the bell and let me know when they stipulation to go potty. Dogs want to please you, so it is your job to let them know what behaviors please you and what doesn't. So when my puppy go potty, I give her a treat*, and clap, and make a fuss and praise her. So she learn that going potty outside makes me happy. If she have an accident, make a disgust sound resembling “tsst” and take her out right away. I never yell* or spank* my puppies. Take them out when they first wake up, after they chomp through or drink, before nap, finish romping, when their activities devolution, or when they are sniffing around. Some puppies go pee right away, but may not go poop until 10 minutes subsequently, so wait for the poop. I have a little play time here, because sometimes I contemplate they are done, and they are not. Puppies train at their own pace. While I may have a puppy that hasn't had an calamity in several weeks, I don't let my guard down. I don't expect my puppies to be "fully potty trained" until one-year-old. If they have a setback, shake it past its sell-by date, and start over. I only have my puppies in the crate when I am not watching them. When I am sleeping, cooking, ironing, doing chores, deeply when I am not watching her. All other times, she is out of the crate practicing being a "big girl." This is the time I train her how to behave in the house. So we are practicing "no barking", 'no biting", "no jumping", and "don't munch through the furniture." I also have to practice "playing inside" so she doesn't knock over things. You must keep the puppy contained by sight when they are little because they don’t know the difference between newspaper and carpet, and you don’t want them sneaking stale and getting into trouble. Some puppies can sleep through the night around 3-months-old, but their bladder is grown around 6-months-old.
*I use a CRATE to train with. It is the method I prefer, compared to other methods I have tried. I notice that if they are in the crate, while I am doing chores, they are o.k., because the crate allows them to see me and be re-assured. The crate can also be a comfort when stored within the basement for dogs who live in areas where thunderstorms and tornados are an issue. . However, use the method that works best for you..a laundry picnic basket, a cardboard box, a woof-woof house, x-pen, child gates, whatever works for you.
*OUTSIDE, pee pad, litter box, whichever method you are using. When the puppy is first little, preserve the pee pad, litter box near the food and water dish, so the puppy can devour and drink, and then go potty. You can move it away as they get hold of older. The pee pad has a scent that smells and initiates potty. Sometimes a pee wipe makes a sound that scares some puppies, so you might want to use a litter box whether that happens. The pee pad allows a puppy to walk around, but a litter box keep the puppy in one place.
*BEDROOMS, I use the bedroom and living room for training, because it works for me. Choose rooms that work for you, but watch for rooms that are damp, or drafty. While my puppies sleep contained by the bedroom during training, once they are trained, I let them sleep where they want to. They don't have to sleep surrounded by the bedroom forever.
*TREATS. While I use treats for training, you don't have to. I like Charlee Bears for training (a little cracker for a little mouth,) I use them for training, but once they are trained, I cut vertebrae on them.
*SOME PUPPIES will go potty in the same spot respectively time. Some puppies have to be told to go potty. A command like "be in motion out" for pee, or "go finish" for poop, might work for you, keep saying “go finish” until the puppy poops. This is a flawless thing to train if you travel with your dogs. By using nouns, the puppy won't get confused when you are visiting someone, on vacation next to you, or when you get to a new home. The command will share them what you want them to do in an unfamil
How old is she (8, 10, 12 weeks, etc)? What signs do you look for to know she needs to go external? Do you crate? How do you deal with her outside? Do you use nouns to let her know it's time to go potty when outside? We vote "time to go potty!" when we tell our dogs it is time to go out.
Our 3-1/2 month ripened puppy still has a few accidents when she is loose in the house (we crate her at hours of darkness or while we are away from the house), but she is getting better control. She is still a baby surrounded by training.
To potty train, look for every time she gets up, drinks water, eats, plays, whimper, jumps at a door or gate, or sniffs in an nouns. If you have to leash walk and cannot take her external conveniently for those times, use paper or puppy pads in an nouns that can be cleaned up easily to teach your dog that it is her spot (until she can hold it for scheduled outings).
For adjectives else, especially walks, stick to a schedule. Dogs entail daily routines to know when it's "ok" to drink their water. Our older dogs rely on their programmed times outside to pace their water drinking.
Hopefully, your parents are only a little frustrated and need some guidance on what to do and what to expect. Good luck with the puppy!
It isn't inhumane
to be precise how I train my dogs and I've never had problems it's what my vet has always told unmarked pup owners
