Rex will bark to go out when he is in his cage to pee but when he is out he will just go in the kitchen and pee. How can I stop that its getting annoying. This is the first time it has happened in a while because Im normally up on him but we were playing around and I didnt think of it. GRRR im getting annoyed. I said bad dog and stuck him back in his cage .When I go look at him he puts his head down so he knows he did a bad thing

before he goes into the kitchen or even while in the kitchen is he pacing?? it may not be that noticable at first but sit back and just watch him... This is a suttle but very important sign that he needs to go out

Take him out first thing when you get him out of his crate. Stay outside with him till his pees then give him a treat immediately, jump up and down and say good boy!!!! Then bring him out every 30-45 mins, after he eats & after he plays. You might want to attach a leash to you so you know where he is at all times. Every time he has an accident in the house you are basically starting over. Good luck girl!! It just takes a little time!! Rewards worked for mine, he will do just about anything for a treat!!

I was really good with Nala the first week or so.. consistently let her outside every 2 hours around the clock. Then I noticed she could hold her bladder for much longer, so I became more lax. Now she has more accidents than ever before, and it's my fault for slacking! You really have to stay on top of it for the first 6 mos.

I will definitely have to try the treats next. I'm right there with you girl, I feel your pain!

I was the same way LuvaBull , when I first got my pup I watched him like a hawk . Once I thought he had the idea I slacked off and he had a few accidents so back to being ever vigilant :)

I definately agree that consistency is the key. ALso - as you hinted at - sometimes their "tells" are hard to pick up on. Sasha will come into the room and just look at me in a certain way. Sometimes I think she is just trying to be cute but almost all of the time she is trying to tell me she has to pee.
She is almost a year old and still sometimes has an accident! But I would say it is almost always our fault for not letting her out 20-30 minutes after a big drink.
I still have to remind my husband to give her some time - he thinks that 10 minutes after she pees she should have to go. I'm like "Dude, the body doesn't work that fast!"
20 minute rule.
Also- I have read that you should let them out after a play session. It makes sense - the adrenaline and heart pumping may move things towards the bladder too!
Good luck!

With you saying this and then saying that he barks in his cage to go pee makes me think that he realizes that he only has to let you know that he has to go out when he is in his cage.

When he has an accident in the kitchen, try grabbing him before he finishes, then put him outside immediately and say go potty outside. and everytime do that. When he does go outside by himself, tell him go potty. That way he can associate outside and going potty.

Good advice. And praise, praise, praise when he does go outside. Praise him like he just did the most amazing thing ever! Don't scold him if he's already finished...he will have no idea what he's being scolded for. Also, he doesn't "know" he did a bad thing. He only knows that you are angry with him. Puppies aren't like children. When puppies have accidents it's our own faults for not being more watchful. Good luck, he'll get it eventually! :D
