My MIL used to have a female Chocolate Lab that was always skittish around wood floors. She would walk on tile and carpet just fine. She refused to walk on wood floors, though.

Floor is lava. We've only done training for this 2x, so I have a strong suspicion he'll get over it.

Well, last night was a shit show literally. TPW took the gremlin to the beach and i think she had too much salt water because she had diarrhea everywhere 3 times. The last time st 1:45am she found my raycon earbuds on the night stand. Well ip68 ear buds may be slobber proof, but they aren't puppy teeth proof. Just glad I got to her before she could swallow them.

Praise Jibbers and pass the ammunition! Pepper finally used the dog door, went outside, and went pee all by herself!

Just wait until you train a Human child to do that someday. You’ll really feel special then.

You're not making a good case for kids. Its been 4 weeks and the poop and pee cleanup is getting on my nerves. I can't imagine 2.5 years of this.

you have another month. But it will be an easier month. Dogs typically take 4 to 6 months to be house broken. Both of my labs were right at the 4 month window. Some of it is being big enough to hold it. We have bells that they ring when they want to go out there were times where we were not fast enough to let them out, you have the benefit of the doggy door

Yeah, im.liking the dog door. So far the puppy hasn't had an accident today. She's gone out on her own and with encouragement. But she's a digger and soon we'll have to keep an eye out for fence digging. The biggest thing right now is her older brother doesn't want to murder her anymore and they are best buddies. I can tell him to go get his sister and he'll go babysit her in the yard. She'll follow him.inside when he's ready. Its really cool.

If you've got dogs that use a dog door they will teach new pups how to use it

She picked up the concept fast. We have one of those magnetic screen doors instead of a regular door so the dogs can get off the porch easy and the mosquitoes stay out. She runs thru that door at full speed in full on gremlin mode happy as a clam. Shes got to slow down for the dog door though since its higher.

A little, but it's more transference to her brother than anything. Her brother tried to murder her 10 minutes into her coming home and then 2 more times in the first week (all fear biting). I thought she'd be ruined and he wasn't going to tolerate a puppy. Now he's super tolerant and she's his best friend. They play for hours and she bites the shit out of him and he wrestles her around and knocks her down. But he goes in for more abuse so they have definitely made up and are happy now. I can even send him outside and tell him to watch her and he will make sure she doesn't get in too much trouble. It's quite the turn around in attitude and I'm hopeful he'll be more sociable around other dogs too.

Our puppy has just about stopped the excited biting. It was getting really old for 9 weeks, but we stayed patient knowing he would grow out of it and to not scold him past telling no bite, just kisses. We also praised him for the kisses. They say German Shepherds sound like they are killing each other when they play...its true. He is now becoming all legs at 3 months. Up to 30lbs. I'm ready for the puppy stage to be over.
