Toilet training... How long?.
Our puppy is 18 weeks old on Saturday and still does his business inside every now and then. We have got a pen outside but to get out we have to open the door for him. We have a chime on the back door that we try to get him to hit to let us know he wants to go out. He does every now and then, but not consistently,
please also note that we do monitor him to take him out. E.g. Sniffing in circles, after a sleep, after food, etc.
we never reward him inside, nor do we shout at him when he does his business inside, but we reward and praise when he does it outside.
how long does it generally take to toilet train him fully?
one other point that frustrates us at times is that he never let's us know that he needs the loo ( no barking, for example).
Any tips and hints what we an do?
