pup training advice
« on: March 23, 2012, 11:28:04 PM »
hey guys just wondering if i could bend your ears for a minute and maybe gain some knowledge... i have 2 redbone coonhounds that ive raised and trained and both are absolutely amazing dogs... i recently got a third pup about 6 months old and she wont stop using the hallway as her personal bathroom... my other dogs got the old forced smell off its urine a smack on the nose and put outside... they both responded to that very well and never had another accident after... i can leave both of them in the house for 12 hours and neither of them will pee or poo on the floor....

the new pup on the other hand ive done that same thing 5 times now and she still continues to pee on the floor... i dont want to beat her and loose her trust and maybe its just her... but she seems very smart and willing to please... any help you guys could offer would sure be appreciated.... thanks

John

Well here is my advice to you
 
 Hunting dogs hammerhead bone heads but thatís why we love them we want independent dogs hi strung full of blast when the going gets tough problem is you got to live with the dam things. 
 
  I have a GSP and have had a few of them over the years some had to live in the house but the one I currently have now lives in the garage were both happier.  My advice to you is to keep the pup in a air line crate for a few hours at a time only letting it out to pee.  Prise the dog give a treat and a belly rub only positive re enforcement on the pee.  Then right back to the kennel most dogs will not pee in a kennel do this for a few days and see what happens

all the dogs I have had over the years were kennel trained and has worked phenominally
It got to the point that my 7 year old lab uses his kennel as his sleeping bed at night and his little sanctuary when the grand babies come over.I tried a couple times over the years to take it down and store it away but although he would never piss in the house,he would mope around for days until I set it back up and put his blanket in it.

Agree 100%.  My 12 year old GSP absolutely loves her kennel and still uses it today.  I have managed to get her to use a dog bed in our closet but I believe she still prefers the confines of her kennel, its definitely her safe place.  although she will occasionally get the desire to be a lap dog and try to sleep between my legs at night.  lol  :D

The dog will not have an accident if you keep them in their personal space.

PS never discipline the dog in their safeplace either, no matter how mad you are or how much they deserve it.
