Extreme potty training needed

by ragster on 9/8/2010 at 1:37 PM in Training

Our rescue Cavachon 1 1/2 yo. (we've had for 2 mos. now) is a wonderful boy, except that we can't get him to consistantly potty outside.
He will go out if we tell him "let's go out"
(we have a doggie door) and sometimes he ventures out on his own, and then sometimes we have to assist him to go out (we go with him, we don't just shove him out the door). He may potty just fine but, he can also just stand outside stiff as a post, or sniff all over and do nothing and then go right back inside and potty. We knew this was going to be an issue because he had been crated for most of his life! The former owner really didn't want him, and he was matted and had never been on a leash when we got him.
We need some advice!!

Buddy's coat is beautiful...fluffy white and no more tangles. He gets his brush out EOD to keep him pretty and he loves the attention. Bath time is fun. I put all 3 dogs in the tub. They are all so good about it too. Just amazes me how they enjoy bathtime!

Patients, patients, patients. I have a Jack Russell mix and he was very difficult to potty train. We put him on a schedule and every two hours like clock work we would take him out to potty whether he had to go or not. Sometimes it just takes them a while to find the "right spot". Also if you have more then one dog he may be looking for a spot of his own so hes not covering another dogs scent. I would also take him out on his own. I noticed when potty training when I would take both dogs out together they would be more interested in playing then going potty. Best of luck to you.
