Well not so old....8 months. My problem....

We just moved 2 weekens ago. My old house had a sliding glass door to the back yard in the livingroom. Clutch when he wanted to go out he would just go sit by the door and look at us. We would then let him out. He never barks or begs or trys to get our attention to get let out. He just sits and waits...which I love. But our new home has no sliding glass door. It has a regular back door that is in our kitchen. You cant see it from the living room. So now Clutch just goes to the backdoor and waits. We dont catch on to the fact that he is back there sometimes and he pees all over the floor. He has now peed 3 times in the past 2 weeks. I feel that it is my fault cause I dont realize he is asking to go out...his water and food is in the kitchen too so most time I just assume that he is drinking or finishing up some dinner he had left. I don't want him to start barking to ask to go out. I like the fact that he is not a begger. I have heard some on here say they have tought their pups to ring a bell to go out. Is it too late to teach Clutch that? At least that way I can hear he has to go out w/o him barking and w/o him waiting patiently to no prevail. I have not been disciplining (sp?) him for it cause I have been catching him after the fact. I never see him pee...I just walk in it thats how I know. Any advice on this and the training method for it would be greatly appreciated....Thanks!!!!!

I haven't done it but I read some people teaching their dog the bell thing later on. It says just make their paw hit the bell before you let them out, then they will get it. Good luck.

We recently moved ourselves and we went from a doggy door that was in a sliding glass door to a regular door that is in our livingroom (in the carpeted area of course!) Titus will be a year old on May 7th and he had a few accidents the first 2 weeks or so, he has never been one to make a noise either we just walk in and you get your socks all wet and wahlah there is a suprise puddle on the floor. After a few of these we started to point at the spot and say "What is this?" and he would put his head down and he knew he had done wrong.... after a few of these he would start to come and bug the heck out of us when he had to go out and if you did not pick up on it he would go by the door again. We reverted back to giving a treat for when he would go out and go pee and no treat when he went in the house, also making a big deal about going outside and making him touch the door was pretty easy for him to pick up. Now when he has to go out he will paw on the back door almost like he is knocking on it (not a obnoctious (spelling??) digging at the door) and if he knows you are not in the room he will knock on the door then if you don't come after 2 or 3 knocks he will come and find you then pace in circles.... it took about a month from when we moved in but he has not had any accidents since then.... Good luck...

I think I may have to go back to the treat thing too...Thanks for the input.

Titus's B-day is the same as mine...HAPPY EARLY B-DAY TO HIM!!!
