When we are home and not aware, why is it our schnoodle is occasionally wetting or defecating in the house? Is this a personality issue? We've had him 6 months and he is 3 yrs. old.

We are having the same problem with a schnoodle we rescued a year ago. We think she is about 2 or 3 yrs old.

Our Schnoodle does the same thing, he is 6 months old. We cannot get him to go outside on any regular basis.

I have had my schnoodle for 3 years and she is the perfect dog. I have never had any problems with her having potty accidents. They might be having anxiety my dog has that. Just reassure them and let them know that it is not ok to have accidents.

You might try treats to get your schnoodle to go, also encouragement. Also it might be hawks, they love small animals. Dogs see alot of things we do not.

I obtained my schnoodle when she was six weeks old and it took her 3 months to fully house train. What I found helpful was taking her out every couple of hours and right after she would eat. When I would leave to work I would leave potty training pads and every time she should use them I would give her positive reinforcement. Since seem to work for me to train. A thing with the schnoodle because it does like being with the family it might choose not to let you know it needs to go outside because it doesn't want to be left outside too long. So as soon as you know it has used the restroom let him back in and that way it learns that he won't be left there.

My schnoodle likes a lot of attention maybe he needs more attention and place him on a regular schedule. Also he might prefer to be walked, my schnoodle holds his poop until he is walked up the street.

We have had 2 schnoodles over the last 25 years and just love that breed! Both of them were stubborn but crate training is the way to go!! THey are incredibly smart and love games and a challenge. We trained the 2nd one not only with a crate, but when we were home we hung a bell on a string around the handle of the door. She absolutley loved going over and ringing that bell when she needed to go potty! I know somtimes it seems they are just doing it for attention but overall it worked beautifully! Schnoodles are very smart and they love to be challenged as they get bored easily. We had so much fun with both of them and miss them terribly! Guess it's time for another schnoodle!!
