What to do when an 8 week old puppy will not relieve itself outside? We have stayed out as long as an hour and a half, brought her back in and she goes on the floor.
I believe in crate training. First, I recommend that you buy a book on the subject. Basicly the puppy should be in a confined area in the house ( comfortable crate or sectioned of area ). The puppy should be brought outside to go to the bathroon every 2-3 hrs at this age. When you see the puppy going in the house quickly reprimand and bring outside. The puppy should be rewarded with treats when he goes outside. Be very consistant. vetcare
