We have an 8 wk old Vizsla. We are trying to potty train and crate train her. We have also introduced her to a leash, harness and collar. She gets better and better with the leash and collar as we walk her... however the potty training and crate training seems to be more difficult. She has to pee almost every 5 minutes EVEN when we have the water bowl up. She also howls and barks nonstop if we are not within her touch! Help! Any suggestions?

A Vizsla is a very sensitive dog. They yearn for human contact. If you are not prepared for that you should think twice about keeping it. It may get a little better when it is older, but it will still might howl (at least for a while) when u all leave house. The crate may also be stressing her - that might pass in time. Finally, though I think extremely unlikely you should have her checked for diabetes if the urination problem persists

I have a 5 month old vizsla pup that finally just got it. Before that there was an accident every 5-10 min. Hang in there.

It was the hardest thing to do-walk away from my crying baby after I put him in his crate so I could go to work. (I work from my house so I could always hear the cries.) Have the will power to ignore it bc it will get better. She has to get used to being alone. And the crate will keep her safe. Remember Vizsla's are den animals so the crate is the perfect environment. It will work I promise. Just don't give in or she will know what it takes to get your attention and never learn to like the crate/be alone.
