Cavapoo Question

My 17 week old Cavapoo Suggs wont toilet train!!


My Cavapoo will go to the door, we let him out, he comes back in and squats on the mat! He know's he's doing wrong, we have paper in the kitchen that he also goes to but its as though he forgets! When he does go to paper or outside we praise him and give him a treat

You will have to crate train him. Crate training works because since birth, dogs do not like to pee where they sleep - so the theory is if it is sleeps in the crate for a decent amount of time it will not pee there unless its bursting at the seams to pee. You may want to read on crate training as I am certainly not an expert, but how we do it is this: 1. Remove dog from crate (assume this is in an infinite loop). 2. Immediately take the dog out to pee - do not come in until it has. 3. Leave the dog out for an hour; if you see the dog start to lift its leg, take him out immediately. If you see him sniffing around more than usual this means he is looking for a place to pee; take him out immediately. 4a. If the dog drinks water, set a timer for 20 minutes, then put him in the crate. After ~40 minutes of being in the crate, repeat #1. 4b. If the dog does not drink water, let him run around for an hour after he pees. When the hour is up, put him in the crate for an hour. Repeat #1.

NEVER BE FRIGHTENED OF CRATE TRAINING YOUR CAVAPOO - ITS THE BEST THING I EVER DID AND THE SAFEST.
